Classical Chinese Medicine

Classical Chinese Medicine. (CCM) is a complete medical system used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. It is effective for physical, psychological, and emotional problems. CCM is over three thousand years old. Rooted in Taoist traditions, its curative purpose is to return the body to a harmonious balance of Yin and Yang.

Although the medical principals guiding CCM are firmly established and have not changed over the years, the art of the medicine has expanded and adapted with the changing times. CCM is now at home in many western hospitals around the country.

CCM is holistic, viewing the patient as a whole person rather than only specific presenting signs or symptoms. As such there are often a number of routes to pursue treatment, if one approach does not work well other methods will meet the therapeutic needs of the patient.
