Health and Wellness

Concepts of health and wellness vary in culture and time. Chinese medicine defines health as 健康 (Jian Kang), literally "Building Health." It is the idea of wellness as an active process of becoming aware and making conscious choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. 


Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. It is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease. In traditional Chinese medical and philosophical thought, living according to the seasons promotes the four treasures of longevity, prosperity, health and happiness.

Turtle Dragon was established in 1994 with the intention of bringing to Austin the many benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine and culture. Based upon timeless principles of balance and harmony, we employ and instruct an alternative and complementary perspective on health, wellness, longevity, and sustainable self-care techniques.
