What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (also known as TCM) has been practised for over 2,500 years, originating in ancient China. It takes a holistic approach to the body, focusing on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order to ensure good health, with a focus on illness prevention as much as treatment.
TCM utilizes acupuncture, herbal medicine and cupping to achieve optimum health and well-being.
Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including thyroid dysfunction, digestive problems, emotional disorders, chronic fatigue, hormone disorders, fertility, chronic fatigue, migraines and sinus conditions. It can also be used to improve cosmetic appearance by improving acne, reducing wrinkles and dark spots and giving a lift to the appearance of the skin of the face and neck.

He uses a range of traditional techniques in treating migraines, digestive problems, sinus conditions, hormone disorders, fertility, thyroid dysfunction, chronic fatigue, emotional disorders and weight management*.
Toby uses the ancient “Eight Trigrams” approach to acupuncture, which has been in use by masters since the development of the I-Ching, which forms the basis of all Chinese philosophy. He also uses the very popular balance method of treatment developed by Richard Tan, using fewer needles to achieve powerful results. This method is an ideal form of pain management as it is quick and effective.
