Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has evolved quite a bit over the years, with renewed focus as a form of physical therapy in the present decade. Traditionally, practitioners incorporate the use of herbal medicines in conjunction with mind and body practices, including Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Massage and Acupuncture (which is available at our clinic) to treat (and prevent) numerous physical ailments. In Canada, people use TCM primarily as both a supplementary and complementary approach to health and wellness.
