Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of medicine that dates back to the third century BCE and is based on the balance and harmony of qi, or life force energy, within the body. TCM looks at the body holistically and divides up organs by their yin or yang nature into twelve main systems in order to understand the flow of energy throughout the body. TCM practices include Chinese herbal therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, and cupping therapy.
