Chinese Medicine (TCM)

As traditional Chinese medicine, TCM, or Chinese medicine the art of healing, which has been cultivated in China for more than 2000 years, is characterized. Its original area of circulation comprises the East Asian area, especially Vietnam, Korea and Japan.

The substratum of TCM is a philosophical view of life. By means of substantial observations of natural phenomenons and the human body a system of ordering is established based on yin and yang (weakness and strength).

Conventional medicine vs. traditional Chinese medicine

Western conventional medicine is, opposed to TCM, focused on a particular organ. TCM looks at the human body in its entirety, in which the organ system and all body parts are linked by the system of meridians. Meridians are a system in which the basic substances of the body circulate: Qi (energy) und Xue (blood). Disease means an unbalanced equilibrium of the body, caused by disturbances of the balance of yin and yang by inner or outer influences.

Diagnostics and therapy are based on the theories mentioned above. In doing so examination methods such as consult, seeing, hearing, smelling and touching are performed. The diagnosis and a treatment plan are decided on individually after the examination and an analysis to equilibrate yin and yang to stimulate the self-regulating forces.
