Traditional Chinese Medicine at DHTC

Traditional Chinese Medicine at DHTC

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been practiced in China for thousands of years. Its central idea is that life energy known as Qi flows through the body.  Any Qi imbalance might result in sickness and disease. Most often, this imbalance is believed to be brought on by a change in the opposing and complementing energies that make up the Qi. These opposite forces are referred to as yin and yang. TCM practitioners aim to reestablish a dynamic equilibrium between these opposing forces of yin (passive) and yang (active), which permeate both the human body and the cosmos. TCM holds that a person is in good health when these two energies are in balance.

The ancient Chinese held that we are microcosms of the broader cosmos because of our interconnectedness with nature and vulnerability to its effects. A crucial concept in TCM is finding a balance between health and disease. TCM therapy works to reestablish this equilibrium by providing individualized care. It is believed that to recover equilibrium, you must strike a balance between your internal organs and the natural elements outside of your body.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats several issues and approaches to treating ailments from a holistic perspective. A variety of symptoms are treatable such as pain, IBS, colitis, infertility, neuropathy, arthritis, insomnia, stress, and depression. TCM can treat chronic and/or acute problems as well. TCM practitioners use various psychological and/or physical approaches (such as acupuncture and tai chi) as well as herbal products to address health problems.

Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which is the insertion of needles in specific points of the body. Acupuncture is particularly beneficial when managing surgical recovery, decreased immunity, chronic aches, and pains, cardiovascular disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, stress, fatigue, signs of aging neuromuscular conditions, and infertility.



Cupping is an ancient form of alternative therapy that has been practiced as an effective treatment for many ailments. Cupping works by creating suction on the skin with the application of a heated cup, which can increase blood flow, break down scar tissue, and help relieve tight muscles. It’s also been shown to be effective in helping with fevers, chronic low back pain, poor appetite, indigestion, high blood pressure,and anemia.


Ear Point Treatment

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the ear is like a micro map of the entire body, all regions and organs of the body can be treated via ear acupuncture points. The ear point treatment is a type of acupuncture treatment without needles. Small herbal seeds will be taped onto these points and the patient is asked to massage them regularly. It will help the energy flow of the meridians and adjust the Yin and Yang within the person’s body. It can help with sleeping problems, pain management (e.g. headaches) to reduce weight, and to quit smoking. Overall it is a way to return the body to a healthier body condition.

Laser Acupuncture

Laser Acupuncture is a new non-invasive, painless, and effective approach to pain management that is more enjoyable than needles. It uses laser beams instead of traditional acupuncture needles to influence the flow of current at the acupuncture points. It stimulates the acupuncture points in ways similar to needle acupuncture. Laser Acupuncture has been proven to provide relief for many chronic conditions, such as neck and back pain, stress, headaches and migraines, and muscle aches.

Chinese Decoctions

Herbal remedies form a vital part of TCM. Following a thorough individual history and current assessment of each individual, we carefully prescribe and prepare herbal decoctions effective for detoxification, treating and preventing disease – and conditions such as colds, bronchitis, asthma, and allergies.
