 Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) possesses a unique theoretical system, rich clinical experience and excellent clinical effects. It has made great contributions to the health of mankind.


Unlike the Western anatomical model which divides the physical body into parts, the Chinese model is more concerned with function. For example the TCM spleen is not seen as a specific piece of tissue, but an aspect of function related to transformation and transportation within the body, and the mental functions of thinking and studying.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a practice-oriented health science, which concentrates on the well-being of both body and mind, looks at the patient overall, and represents a treatment taking into account respective individual, temporary, and symptomatic circumstances.
The traditional chinese medical treatment is based on four pillars: Chinese herb treatment, acupuncture, tuina (chinese manual therapy), and Qi-Gong or Tai-Ji exercises (Chinese therapeutic gymnsatics).TCM places special emphasis on the unity of the human body and nature. The roots of TCM-therapy can be traced back more than 2,500 years.
A decisive difference between TCM and Western medicine is TCM´s holistic and individual focus by the Medical doctor on each patient. In Chinese medicine, sickness and organs are not looked at separately from the overall condition of the patient, and the physician tries to re-establish the equilibrium, the harmony, as well as the well-being of the patient. In effect, there is no fixed treatment guideline in TCM, which is a difference from Western medicine. Each patient is seen and treated individually. During treatment, the physician will keep close contact with the patient and - dependent on the illness and healing process - continuously reexamine the original diagnosis and, if necessary, adapt the treatment to new developments. Hence, changes in the state of health may bring about necessary adaptations of the therapy to reach optimal healing results.

Nutrition and your health


The increasing incidence of diet-related diseases and the growing evidence of the role of nutrition in the prevention as well as treatment of disease demonstrate the importance of nutrition in the health and wellbeing of the population. 
Healthy eating plays an important role in an active lifestyle. A non-balanced diet can lead to chronic disorders or health problems, like lipometabolic disorders (dyslipidemia), obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), cardiovascular disorders (arteriosclerosis, heart diseases and strokes), gastrointestinal disorders (food allergy and intolerance) and psychosocial disorders (depression, anxiety, sleep apnoea).
Apart from the degree of overweight, the distribution pattern of body fat determines your metabolic and cardiovascular health risk. Visceral body fat correlates closely with cardiovascular risk factors or complications.
In our practice, you can get professional medical nutrition counseling and advice including specific individual recommendations for dietary adjustments, among others under the guidelines of the German Society for Nutrition.
Benefiting from the most recent scientific advances, our practice applies the INSUMED nutrition concept under professional medical supervision. Via Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), your body composition (body cell mass, total body water, body fat) and your nutritional as well as hydration status will be analyzed and evaluated. An individual and evidence-based dietary plan for weight loss will be suggested for your optimal health.
