Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M) is a study and practise of medicine which ages back approximately 2500 years ago. It is an area of specialisation that has stood the test of time and remained authentic in its practices. Founded in China, TCM is based on medicinal practices which include herbal medicine (herbalism), massages, exercises such as QiGong, acupuncture, moxibustion and dietary therapy


The Emergence of the Age-Old Science

TCM has, for the last two and a half centuries played a vital role in the practices and standardisation of medicine in China, Tibet, parts of Japan and Korea. With the influence of Western Medicine, and with globalisation, the benefits of TCM to the wellness of the human body has been notably adapted into modern practices of medicine. 

TCM is no longer known as the medicinal practice of old uncles and aunties. It is beginning to receive a significant interest by the current millennials who are venturing into tertiary education and career options. As the world moves towards organic farming and clean energy, the market for traditional practices is seeing a rise as the younger generation thrives towards healthier options for healing and wellness
