Traditional Chinese Medicine In Michigan

The center for chinese medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a general term that is based on the principle of balancing the delicate systems in the body to achieve optimal health. TCM is based on the theory that the body is an integrated whole, and the body works as a system together, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It incorporates multiple medical modalities including acupuncture, herbal therapies, moxibustion, tui-na (Chinese Massage), electro-stimulation acupuncture, and qi-gong.

TCM is recognized internationally as a safe and effective complement to traditional medical therapies. Many patients seek out a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner in Michigan to support their current medical therapies or as an alternative before moving to more invasive medical treatments. At Michigan Integrative Medicine our practitioners utilize the latest research in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as the wisdom of over 2000 years of Chinese medical history.
