Balance of Power
Traditional Chinese Medicine considers the human being as a whole – i.e. in addition to physical aspects, the psychological well-being of the patient is also included in the treatment. Diseases are regarded as disturbances of the ideal balance of the energies Yin and Yang. Traditional Chinese Medicine knows five classical forms of therapy: Acupuncture and cupping, herbal therapy, nutrition, Tuina massage and movement exercises (Qi-Gong and Tai-Chi). For the diagnosis longer conversations are led, in order to make itself a complete picture of the life change of the patient. In addition, the TCM therapist analyzes the special composition of the pulse and tongue. The World Health Organization (WHO) has drawn up a list of complaints for which TCM is particularly suitable. These range from various chronic diseases and allergies to acute complaints in the musculoskeletal system or the internal organs.
