TCM includes many modalities, such as Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, Moxibustion, Cupping, Massage (Tuina), Aromatherapy, Taichi Chuan, Chigong, and Daoist Meditation.
Acupuncture is fully integrated into the medical system in China and many of the far east countries. In the last 50 years it has become established as a form of complementary medicine in the west. It has become recognised by various medical fertility clinics, in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Europe, UK and Ireland as being valuable in the collaborative treatment alongside IVF programs. Also Acupressure is done in maternity hospitals, and in labour wards and acupuncture proves invaluable in supporting the birthing process before during and in the weeks following.
Acupuncture is offered in the support of many cancer treatments, in particular in assisting the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It is used to diagnose, treat and prevent illnesses and due to its proven effectiveness it has been recognised by the World Health Organization and increasingly by the Western medical profession.
