Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest systems of healing. It is not only concerned with the treatment of existing complaints, but also with the prevention of new ones.
TCM views the human body as a microcosm which interacts harmoniously with the macrocosm in which we live. We are healthy as long as both are in balance. An illness ensues if this delicate balance is upset.
In TCM, it is essential to know the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Together with Ying/Yang and Qi theories(energy or life force) they map every kind of change and development in the human condition as well as between people and their environment.
With its unique combination of TCM and other natural methods, the Spa of the St. Regis Mardavall guarantees relaxation, the restoration of energy and the improvement of health, helping to keep body and mind in prime condition.
The path to the life you want
The appeal of Traditional Chinese Medicine is growing due to its holistic approach, and experimental science has been investigating the mechanisms of traditional treatments for some time now.
Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated a link between modern-day complaints and their treatment with ancient techniques.
It has been established that, today, certain complaints stem from disorders of the immune system which directly result from our modern lifestyle.
The positive influence of Chinese acupuncture, moxibustion and phytotherapy on the immune system as well as
on unspecific stress-induced complaints has also been proven.
