Who understands Chinese

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

As holistic medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) understands health as a state of equilibrium. Accordingly, illness represents a disturbance of the equilibrium for them.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the basic assumption that opposing forces are always present in every living being, process, object, landscape, etc. These forces are known as yin and yang, with yang standing for man, activity, heat, day and mountain, for example. Yin, on the other hand, stands for woman, passivity, cold, night and valley. When a person deals with these terms emotionally, he begins to grasp and feel the difference between these forces. TCM tries to find a balance, to harmonize these forces: The human being should find himself again. It is understandable that in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), health care has always been as important as disease treatment.

TCM and conventional medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and conventional medicine can usually be combined very well, but TCM also offers the possibility of healing or amelioration of complaints if conventional medicine has not been successful. The patient can often forego the additional intake of conventional medicine. In some cases, it is also possible to reduce the dosage of medication, e.g. reducing the intake of cortisone in bronchial asthma. This is particularly important, as many people often ask about an alternative treatment option to conventional medicine with the ever longer lists of reported side effects.

The focus is on the patient

Holistic, individual advice and care is the top priority, with the patient at the center of treatment. In the first interview (this is repeated in the course of the treatment series), the personal complex of complaints is worked out and the psychological state is included in the treatment planning. This means that with TCM, the person experiences his illness as an individual and not as a symptom carrier of e.g. headaches. TCM medicine also systematically takes climate factors such as wind, moisture and cold into account.

Nutritional advice is given, and the therapy includes relaxation methods, heat applications and other physical methods such as cupping and Chinese healing massages. The conventional medical procedures do not offer this in this combination, there the patient goes to separate therapies: psychotherapy, orthopedics and e.g. physiotherapy.
