What is Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a natural healing system that has evolved over two millennia with the benefit of steady research, scholarship, debate, and practical experience by millions of people in Asia.  It stems from acute observations of the natural world and human’s place in that world and takes a holistic view of each individual, focusing on the body’s innate ability to overcome disease and illness.  The result is an elegant, sophisticated system of medicine that is clinically effective and not injurious to the body.

Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that includes a wide variety of therapies including acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, medical massage, and Qigong — therapies that all help to coax the body to preserve its vital energy and restore its dynamic physiological balance to achieve an optimum state of health.
