Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM 中醫) has been developed in China and is based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, including various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncturemassage (Tui Na) and cupping.

TCM holds that the body's vital energy (Qi) circulates through channels, called meridians, which have branches connected to bodily organs and functions. The clinical diagnosis and treatment in TCM are mainly based on the yin-yang and five elements theories which are primarily used as a complementary alternative medicine approach. TCM is widely used in China and also used in the west.
