What is Traditional
Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese medicine traces its roots to thousands of years ago when herbal medications were put into use to successfully treat a wide variety of medical conditions. A practice that focuses on holistic solutions to illness, disease, and health concerns, traditional Chinese medicine can be employed alongside other treatments, whether natural or conventional, to achieve the best results.

Chinese herbal medicines can be used on their own to treat health problems and are also highly effective when combined with acupuncture and bodyworks to help provide relief from health issues and bring unity and balance to the body, spirit, and soul.

TCM Work?

First visit How Does
TCM Work?

1. Environment

The body is highly sensitive to outside stimuli. It reacts to every day things such as the changing of the seasons, the climate, and both emotional and spiritual energies. Each organ of the body provides a unique response to address its surrounding, allowing it to both adapt and function within its environment.

2. Proper Nutrition

Nutrition factors into this equation with the body’s needs being dependent upon both season and weather conditions. TCM helps identify the combination of herbs and eating habits to help promote better nourishment, rest, and relaxation for optimal health and wellness.

3. Balance

Traditional Chinese medicine rests on the defining principle of the yin and the yang. The yin and the yang is a reminder that all aspects of the body must be neatly knit together in the perfect balance to achieve and maintain good health. To find the unity the body needs, traditional Chinese medicine focuses on pinpointing the sensitivities that require fine tuning.

4. External Factors

The body is a sensitive organism. It takes on board external factors such as stress, anxiety, anger, fear, trauma, emotional pain, and sadness. Additionally, it is also impacted by physical things like diet, climate, hereditary health problems, infection, toxic substances, and injury. Traditional Chinese medicine calls for self-evaluation of the patient’s environment to determine what stimuli is shifting the body out of balance and creating poor health.

5. Working With Qi and Meridians

TCM and acupuncture can help redirect Qi (energy) to the appropriate meridians to increase the correct energy flow and promote harmony in the body. These tools form a critical component in the path to healing.

6. Self-Healing

The body possesses innate ability that enables it to heal itself. Unfortunately, this natural ability becomes obscured by such factors as the environment, poor nutrition, stress, and lack of sleep. Herbal medications and acupuncture help to reset the body, restoring harmony and encouraging optimal functionality.

First visit Your First Visit

At your first visit to UTCM, we will take the opportunity to listen to your concerns and health goals. After performing a holistic assessment, we will assess the causes of your health concerns and recommend a treatment plan tailored for your situation.

1. Health Questionnaire

The first visit to UTCM will involve a detailed questionnaire to help the practitioner to best understand any underlying health problems, the patient’s past medical history, and their current lifestyle. This step of the process is critical to developing a plan to treat the conditions from which the patient is seeking relief.

2. Pre-Treatment Testing

Following taking a thorough patient history, some people will require further pre-treatment testing from the UTCM clinic or a physician that specializes in traditional medicine. These tests help to determine the severity of any health conditions as well as a patient’s suitability for treatment.

3. Physical Examination

A physical examination is sometimes required. This most typically includes assessment of vital signs, basic kinesiology of the body, the palpation of areas requiring specific treatment, and examination of the condition of the tongue. The patient’s resting pulse rate will also be measured.

“... very satisfied with the service, so I have booked another appt. The massage was very good and the person who worked on me was a doctor in her home country, so you can tell she knows her stuff. The facial was very comfortable and I almost fell asleep... I will be trying the accupuncture next. Definitely legit.”
