Just like ancient Indian medicines, Tibetan and Chinese medicines are also known for its fantastic effect on human health. Dr Passang’s TMCA Clinic is the perfect example of the goodness of Tibetan and Chinese medicines. Armed with a doctorate degree in traditional ancient medicine of China and Tibet, Dr Passang has tried to unite both the disciplines by combining herbal medicine with acupuncture.
What do they offer?
Along with the combination of Tibetan and Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, Moxa, cupping and Chiropractic work is used to heal body pains, stiffness in body and acute and chronic problems. Tibetan medicines take the whole person into account considering all aspects like lifestyle, diet, morality and most importantly the emotions. If there is an imbalance of any of these aspects, then it weakens the immune system of the person. These are considered as the root cause of all ailments.
Further, at this clinic they treat face and skin problems of all kinds, physical and emotional problems. They also have treatments for weight loss and weight gain. Another interesting aspect of this clinic is that they offer sessions to help one quit smoking and drinking.
Let’s us understand a bit more about the methods used. For instance, Moxa treatment which is also called as maxibustion is a traditional Tibetan medical technique which involves the burning of mugwort which is a weedy plan. This is done over the required acupuncture point of the patient. Practitioners of this method believe that this act helps in strengthening the blood circulation and Qi which is a spiritual energy. It also helps in maintaining good health.
Here at the clinic, they also use cupping techniques. Cupping is an ancient Chinese technique that offers pain relief without drugs or surgery. This technique takes care of blockage of blood and phlegm. It also helps in maintaining a better flow of blood movement which ultimately takes care of chronic imbalances. This technique also heals spondylitis, blood pressure and problems of water retention to name a few.
