Updated: 3 days ago

TCM slimming, also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine slimming, is a holistic approach to weight loss that addresses the root cause of weight gain and obesity. TCM practitioners believe that excess weight is caused by an imbalance in the body's Qi, or life force energy, which affects the functioning of organs and bodily systems.

TCM slimming treatments typically involve a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and dietary therapy to restore balance to the body and promote weight loss. Acupuncture is used to stimulate specific points on the body to regulate the appetite, improve digestion, and boost metabolism. Herbal medicine is prescribed to improve organ function and support the body's natural detoxification processes. Dietary therapy involves the recommendation of specific foods and dietary practices based on an individual's body type and constitution.
