What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Update:2012-09-26       

With a history of 2000 to 3000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness. The TCM approach is fundamentally different from that of Western medicine.

 

In TCM, the understanding of the human body is based on the holistic understanding of the universe as described in Daoism, and the treatment of illness is based primarily on the diagnosis and differentiation of syndromes.

The TCM approach treats ZangFu organs as the core of the human body. Tissue and organs are connected through a network of channels and blood vessels inside human body.

 

Acupuncture is a technique of inserting and manipulating fine filform needles into specific points on the body with the aim of relieving pain and for therapeutic purposes. According to traditional Chinese acupuncture theory, these acupuncture points lie along meridians along which Qi, the vital energy, flows.
