WHAT IS Traditional Chinese Medicine?

«Declare the past, diagnose the present, foretell the future.»
Hippocrates

Chinese Medicine is a very ancient type of medicine which includes not only acupuncture but also herbal medicine, cupping therapy, various massage techniques (gua sha, tui na, etc), a special diet and exercises.

The main idea of the TCM is that our world and everything in it connects with each other and exists in harmony and balance.

Any imbalance leads to a disease. A TCM practitioner using different methods can help you to reestablish harmony in your body, mind and life.

According to Chinese philosophy, our bodies consist of energies. These energies are contained in special vessels, meridians, which go through organs and provide energy to them. A TCM practitioner influences imbalanced organs or meridians via acupuncture points and brings them into harmony.

Unfortunately, the phenomenon of traditional chinese medicine hasn’t been proven yet, and as a believer in science I hope the way acupuncture works will be discovered.
