WHAT IS TCM?
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is the oldest medical system in the world. It continues to evolve as an essential wellness solution due to its efficacy and long-term benefits. This deeply philosophical ancient medicine was developed through the observation of nature and the cosmos, rooted in the wisdom of Taoism, the concepts of Yin & Yang and the 5 Elements.
This system takes a holistic, balanced approach to address the underlying root causes of health concerns, increase vitality, restore the natural self-healing abilities of the body and prevent illness.
Our practitioners integrate a wide range of modalities such as acupuncture, herbal remedies, cupping, therapeutic massage, moxibustion, gua sha, and sound therapy into our services to support the body’s natural healing abilities to restore, renew, and promote optimal wellbeing. Each treatment builds on another, moving you closer to a vibrant, harmonious, self-loving future.
WHAT IS QI?
Qi is the vital energy that animates your body and protects you from illness. It flows through internal pathways called meridians and provides nourishment to your cells, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands.
In modern science terms, Qi is regarded as bioelectricity that regulates our cells, tissues and organs.
As we cope with everyday stress and constant tolls to our bodies in the modern world, a deeper, more comprehensive holistic medicine solution to wellness becomes essential - a priority that’s beyond important even when you don’t have any symptoms.
TCM offers a natural and powerfully effective approach to address root causes with lasting benefits, keeping the body balanced and healthy. TCM activates the natural self-healing abilities of your body, to boost your energy and immunity, relieve pain, rebalance your inner system, improve vital organ health, minimize stress and anxiety, promote youthful-looking skin, and even keep many disorders from appearing or progressing.

Herbal medicine and acupuncture are the two most important therapeutic modalities of TCM. In fact, when both are employed holistically, the powerful combination is the best solution for enhancing wellness and maintaining overall health.
Over thousands of years, TCM herbology has evolved into an art form all its own. Ancient herbal information has been gathered, compiled, formulated, tested, and handed down from generation to generation. All TCM herbs are classified according to their energetic qualities and functions – as well as the various organs, meridians, and disharmonies they best address. Individual herbs are combined in order to enhance their actions and effects upon the body; when combined, a unique, synergistic formula is created. This combination increases the benefits of a particular herb – and minimizes any side effects.
Herbal medicines are used to expedite the healing process and strengthen, support and tonify the body. Herbs have the capacity to address the underlying root causes of many health concerns. When applied topically, these herbs can facilitate the skin regeneration process, resulting in optimal skin health for a natural, healthy looking radiance. Herbal medicine is the ultimate, tried-and-true superfood for your body, soul and glow.
