TCM and TCM Treament
What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical practice that originated from China over 2,500 years ago. TCM works by analysing the syndromes of ailments to treat their root causes. Treatments take on a holistic approach. The patient's 'chi' (energy) that run along a body's key meridians, as well as his physical and mental well-being are taken into consideration when administering treatments. The aim is to restore balance between these different elements, and as a result, eradicate the ailments and regain health.
How do we treat ailments?
At Meng TCM Wellness Centre, we use acupuncture, herbal medicine, heat therapy, and other complementary methods (separately or in combination) to activate your body’s natural healing powers to speed up the recovery process. We prescribe Chinese herbal medication according to individual needs. Medication is dispensed in powder, capsule, and pill forms for convenience and hygiene. We also offer health assessment and advice on holistic methods to balance your constitution and help prevent serious illnesses.
