What Is TCM?

And What Can It Do For You?

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system that has been used for thousands of years to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. It is based on the belief that Qi (the body’s vital energy) flows along meridians (channels) in the body and keeps a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health in balance. Traditional Chinese medicine aims to restore the body’s balance and harmony between the natural opposing forces of yin and yang, imbalance can block Qi and cause disease. Traditional Chinese medicine includes acupuncture, diet, herbal therapy, meditation, physical exercise, and massage. Also called Oriental medicine and TCM.

Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles, which go back nearly two thousand years. It has a very positive model of good health and function and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the body's equilibrium.

Lifestyle

Traditional Chinese Medicine always places great emphasis on this area. Until this aspect is balanced all other medicine will be less effective. It’s said that if we embrace the ‘The Three Free Therapies’ of diet ,relaxation,and exercise we should have less need of medical intervention!

Tui Na

Tui Na , literally meaning ‘push pull’, is a physical therapy used mainly for musculoskeletal complaints. I trained in Tui Na at the Hangzhou TCM hospital in China and use it as an adjunct to Acupuncture treatment.

Herbal Remedies

Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with an unbroken tradition going back to the 3rd century BC. Yet throughout its history it has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use.

Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles, which go back nearly two thousand years. It has a very positive model of good health and function and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the body’s equilibrium.

What makes this system so uniquely suited to modern life is that physical, emotional and mental are seen as interdependent, and reflect what many people perceive as the connection between the different aspects their lives.

 

Based on traditional belief, acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for centuries. The focus is on the individual, not their illness, and all the symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Each patient is unique; two people with the same western diagnosis may well receive different acupuncture treatments.

Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s Qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injuries are among the most common. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, a traditional acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of Qi to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with an unbroken tradition going back to the 3rd century BC.
Yet throughout its history it has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use. This process continues today with the development of modern medical diagnostic techniques and knowledge.

Because of its systematic approach and clinical effectiveness it has for centuries had a very great influence on the theory and practice of medicine in the East, and more recently has grown rapidly in popularity in the West. It still forms a major part of healthcare provision in China and is provided in state hospitals alongside western medicine. Chinese medicine includes all oriental traditions emerging from Southeast Asia that have their origins in China.

Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It aims to understand and treat the many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined and the ways in which a person’s Qi or vitality may be depleted or blocked. Clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance.

However, the tradition as a whole places great emphasis on lifestyle management in order to prevent disease before it occurs. Chinese medicine recognises that health is more than just the absence of disease and it has a unique capacity to maintain and enhance our capacity for well being and happiness.

What Our Clients Say

Because Personal experience matters

"After decades of failed medical interventions Andrew was able to provide resolutions I simply thought impossible! With damaged cartilage in my knees from a car accident, I suffered for years with knee and associated leg pain. Traditional medicine offered very little in the way of remedy and simply continued to prescribe ever stronger pain killers.
It was suggested by a friend to "Just go and give it a try". As it was one of the few things I had not previously tried I thought, what have I got to lose?
Well, the only word I can use to describe the effects of those first few sessions is phenomenal! The treatments gave immediate relief and the steps following this embedded the treatment so that the resolution and relief stayed.
Alex
"At the age of 18 i developed severe allergies and hayfever that meant i was practically unable to leave the house in the summer months because i would struggle to breathe with symptoms of continual sneezing, constantly running eyes and nose and asthma. I had to invest in air purifiers in my home and keep all windows closed. I felt like I had no summer at all for 20 years and just accepted that this was the way my life would be forever. I went to see Andy on the recommendation of a friend. He improved my symptoms straight away and after one year of treatment i was cured. I can't thank him enough for giving me my summers back!"
Mike
"In my mid 20s i was diagnosed with ME. I went from regularly climbing mountains, practicing martial arts and cycling to being barely able to walk to the corner shop practically overnight. After two years it was clear that my doctor couldn't do a great deal to help me. I went to see Andy when I'd practically given up on ever getting better. However with his combination of herbs, acupuncture and professional approach he was able to improve me straight away. Six months on i felt totally cured, and 25 years on I've never had another episode of ME. For me, Andy's help was literally life changing."
Kelsey
"I have known Andrew for almost 20 years as a therapist. He is a consummate professional in all he offers. He is supportive, caring and exercises his extensive skills with a wisdom borne of lifelong learning. In my own journey as a practitioner Andrew has been generous with his time and his knowledge. He has supported many of our family with acupuncture, herbs and much valued advice. We continue to learn and benefit from his extensive understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I cannot recommend Andy and his treatments more highly."
