What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a healing modality that has been used in China for over 2500 years. It is now gaining acceptance in many parts of the world including Canada, USA, Europe.
This form of medicine treats the body as a whole, and the treatment can include any of the TCM techniques.

TCM includes acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, herbs and dietary considerations to help an individual heal.

 Although this Medicine has been in practice for a long time, new research and techniques are continually being developed to treat new diseases.

How do you Diagnose in TCM?

TCM Diagnosis involves the following principles:

inquiring, listening and smelling, inspection, and palpation.

The consultation involves detailed questionnaire about client health;

listening to the tone of their voice, their breathing, any sounds (e.g wheeze, cough),

and if there is any particular smell (e.g. diabetics often have a sweet body odour).

Inspection focuses on the area of discomfort, any visible inflammation or discolouration, and checking the colour and coat of the tongue;

Palpation involves touching the area of discomfort for any masses, knots, nodules and checking the pulse.

These techniques help determine what is causing the health problem and how to best treat it.
