Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has quite a long history in China and plays a unique role in the Chinese medical field. It is now being applied in clinical practice more commonly as a complementary treatment upon the request of many patients, Chinese and international alike. The TCM service of Shanghai DeltaHealth Clinic houses a team of TCM doctors with rich clinical experiences and diverse schools of TCM training and disciplines. As part of SDC’s Multi-disciplinary approach, TCM is also being applied in fields such as cardiology, rehabilitation, family medicine, and dermatology. Combining treatment of TCM and western medicine aims to achieve greater treatment effects and better clinical outcomes.
The TCM specialists of Shanghai DeltaHealth Clinic will make a professional diagnosis for your condition via using inspection, auscultation and olfaction, inquiry and palpation. They are skilled in performing acupuncture, moxibustion, massage, cupping, and herbal medicine. TCM treatment approaches are also highly individualized. It is advisable to select a TCM doctor through a recommendation by your family physician followed by an initial introductory session with your selected TCM doctor. Patient experience suggests that a patient often stays with his or her TCM doctor for a long time once a congenial and effective doctor-patient relationship has been established.
