Holistic healing – Our healing methods

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is part of the Chinese culture and has a history of more than 3,000 years. In TCM, the yin-yang harmony of the internal organs plays a crucial role in health and well-being. In TCM, recognizing yin-yang disturbances is the basis of diagnosis. Balancing these disturbances is the basis of therapy. TCM treatment focuses not only on the individual diseased organ, but on the whole clinical picture and well-being. Thus, the yin-yang disharmonies are regulated again.
