Traditional Chinese Medicine / Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine, A Holistic healing system

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic healing system rooted in ancient Chinese philosophy. Key principles include the concepts of Qi (vital energy), Yin and Yang (complementary forces), and the Five Elements. TCM employs practices such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, gua sha, tui na (massage), and dietary therapy to maintain the balance of Qi and promote overall health. The system recognizes the mind-body connection and emphasizes personalized treatments based on individual constitution and patterns of imbalance. TCM addresses a wide range of conditions by considering the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit. It is essential for TCM to be administered by Omni Physical Therapy Services physical therapist as qualified and licensed practitioners for safe and effective care. Request an appointment today!
