TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a healing system developed in China more than 2,000 years ago that incorporates therapies like acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping that have been in practice even longer as well as modern therapies like laser acupuncture.
TCM considers how the body interacts with and is influenced by all aspects of its environment including the weather, seasons, diet and emotions. TCM sees health as a balanced harmony between the body, mind and spirit and TCM practitioners see disease and illness as the result of disruptions in that balance.
In addition to treating illness, TCM focuses on strengthening the body’s defences and enhancing its capacity to heal and maintain balanced health.
TCM & Acupuncture session information:
Initial consultation (including treatment): $110.00
- Subsequent treatments: $90.00
