Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of primary health care that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, remedial massage (anmo tuina), exercise and breathing therapy (such as qigong), and diet and lifestyle advice. In Australia, the most popular forms of TCM health care are acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long uninterrupted history of development in China and other parts of East Asia dating back thousands of years. The primary feature of modern TCM is the premise that good health relies on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order to the individual.

<h2>TCM Decision Making Process</h2>

Clinical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment principles are based on the theoretical frameworks of Traditional Chinese Medicine which is designed to identify the  underlying symptom patterns that indicate what is wrong with the body and how.

Treatment is focused on the underlying condition as well as treating the presenting symptoms. The clinical decision-making and patient management strategies is influenced by contemporary modern approaches to health care, including infection control practices and the known interactions of herbal medicines with pharmaceuticals and other therapeutic substances.
