Many also use TCM as a way of maintaining their health to lessen the chance of becoming sick.
There are a number of modalities that a practitioner of TCM uses to facilitate treatment in the healing process. The most common and recognized by many is Acupuncture. Other important modalities within TCM are the use of TCM herbal formulas and diet modifications. One, two, or all three of these can be utilized. Acupuncture is very flexible and can be used in conjunction with other modalities of treatment such as massage, physiotherapy and chiropractic therapy. Acupuncture and diet modification is also an important complimentary tool to address health concerns with those who are taking western prescription drugs. Being able to treat an ailment without a patient having to take more prescription drugs than they are already doing lessens the chances of developing any side effects from said drugs which might impede their healing.
