Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) 

Why choose Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a history of several thousand years.  Acupuncture, one kind of TCM, is a natural therapy that is very effective in treating and preventing a wide range of medical problems.  Diseases are cured quickly with no side effects.  Acupuncture has become more and more popular all over the world.  If you are healthy, TCM can keep you fit and beautiful.  If you have diseases, TCM can cure them and improve the quality of your life.

How many treatments will be required?

The number of treatments will vary with the individual and the condition being treated.  For acute problems, only a few treatments may be required.  In some cases, one treatment will be sufficient.  For complex or longstanding conditions, three to four treatments a week for several weeks may be recommended.  Treatment sessions usually last from10 to 60 minutes.  Relief may be immediate or may occur within a few hours or few days.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are solid (not hollow) and very fine in construction.  Most clients feel only minimal discomfort when the needles are inserted.  Some people feel no pain at all.  Once the needles are in place, there should be no significant discomfort. Acupuncture needles are also sterile and disposable, which prevents any risk of infection

Other kinds of TCM treatments

Acupressure, cupping therapy and moxibustion are all part of TCM, but apply different techniques to the acupoints.  Ear acupuncture is the practice of stimulation of points in the ears to treat corresponding parts of the body.
