What Is TCM And Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture have been used extensively, dating back to two-thousand years ago in China, for a wide variety of diseases and have achieved great treatment for patients. Traditional Chinese Medicine emphasizes on the effective interaction of functional entities (systems that regulate digestion, breathing, aging, etc) in the body. A disease can be caused by a disharmony in the interaction of body entities, resulting in an imbalance of Ying and Yang, and Qi stagnation. Traditional Chinese Doctors utilize a variety of methods such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, Tuina or Qigong to reestablish the hormonal and energy imbalance in one’s body and thus curing the disease.
