At the Telford Traditional Chinese Medical Centre we are practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is one of the world's most ancient medical systems. It is a distinct and independent system which originated in China and has become increasingly popular in the UK over the past few decades.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic therapy, and a comprehensive medical system with its own principles, diagnostic methods and therapies. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are the main therapies of TCM, supplemented by acupressure, moxibustion and dietary advise.

It views optimum health as a perfect balance of “Yin” and “Yang” energy.
