Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture are two of the world's most ancient medical disciplines. TCM & Acupuncture has its own theoretical principles, diagnostic techniques and characteristic therapies. It has been practised in China for over 4000 years and has become increasingly popular in the UK. Acupuncture in particular are starting to attract increasing support from western scientific findings.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture practices sees the body as a whole with a network of meridians which connects and coordinates the internal organs. TCM and Acupuncture also holds as its central belief that the health in all parts of the body is due to the relative balance of Yin and Yang. Yin-Yang theory forms the basis of the TCM holistic approach to health and disease, and also offers practical guidance in the prevention and management of diseases.
In additional to Acupuncture, the other basic component of TCM is Herbal Medicine. The purpose of TCM treatment is to regulate the "Qi" (energy flow) in the meridians, and to unblock the stagnation of the Qi, as it believes that diseases are caused by these blockages of energy flows in the body.
The meridians are connecting the internal organs which includes five "Zang": Heart. Liver, Spleen, Lung and Kidney; and six "Fu": Small intestine, Gall Bladder, Stomach, Large Intestine, Bladder and Three Burns. It is another cause of different diseases if the internal organs are out of harmony. Treatments of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are to correct these disharmonies.
