Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest and most methodical naturopathy systems in human culture. The range of techniques is huge and they are applied individually or in combination during a course of treatment.

  • Traditional Chinese Medicine

    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is among the oldest and most methodical natural healing systems available to humans. The range of techniques is huge and they are used individually or in tandem during treatment.

  • TCM Diagnosis

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine the diagnosis involves determining the character and the origin of the energetic disturbance in the body. Methods such as the pulse diagnosis (the doctor can identify 29 different types of pulse) and the tongue diagnosis are highly specific to this medicine.

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is one of the most important treatment methods in Traditional Chinese medicine. It helps to once again harmonise a disturbed energetic balance in the body.

  • Moxibustion (Moxa)

    Dried Artemesia vulgaris is used in moxibustion. Moxa is applied to the meridian point appropriate to the problem. It is generally used in combination with other Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment methods.

  • Tuina/Anmo

    Tuina and Anmo are specific massage treatments on the meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The studio MediShou always use these massage techniques in tandem with other TCM treatment methods.

  • TCM Cupping Therapy

    This treatment method involves placing cups on the meridians. The cups are heated up inside and placed on the meridian zone indicated during the diagnosis. The vacuum which forms inside the cup has a therapeutic effect. This treatment technique is used in combination with other treatment methods.

  • TCM herbal therapy

    The wealth of current knowledge in Chinese herbal medicine is very old. It developed and grew in the oral tradition. A comprehensive range of reference works have developed in China over the last two millennia, written by scholars with an encyclopaedic knowledge of herbs.

  • TCM Dietary Therapy

    Like the herbs of TCM pharmacology, all foods were classified according to various properties and energetic effects in Ancient China: according to the nature of their thermal properties (heating or cooling effect within the body), and according to taste and smell (thermal and dynamic effect within the body).

  • Qigong

    Way before Einstein’s time, philosophers and doctors in Ancient China were well aware that energy underlays everything which became manifest, continues to become manifest and which evolves in the macrocosm and the human microcosm.
