Traditional Chinese Medicine

Also sometimes seen abbreviated as TCM, is a form of medicine which has been practiced in China for over 3,000 years, and is also widely practiced in other Asian nations as well. In the West, traditional Chinese medicine is viewed as alternative or complementary medicine, but in China it is the primarily modality of medical treatment for individuals suffering from ailments that range from depression to broken bones. Fundamentally, traditional Chinese medicine is about striking a balance between yin and yang, the masculine and feminine elements, and it is believed that medical problems stem from an imbalance in these elements which must be corrected.

The concepts which come together to create traditional Chinese medicine are incredibly complex, but all of them include the fundamental idea that the human body needs to have a balance of energy, or it will be unhealthy. Traditional Chinese medicine views the body as an integrated whole, rather than an assortment of parts which must be treated individually, and it also includes preventative medicine which is designed to prevent the body from getting sick.

The clinical diagnosis and treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine are mainly based on the yin-yang and five elements theories. These theories apply the phenomena and laws of nature to the study of the physiological activities and pathological changes of the human body and its interrelationships. The typical TCM therapies include herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion, Tui Na massage, cupping, Gua Sha (scraping), dietary, biotin for hair growth and exercise therapies.
