Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive medical system developed over the past 3,000-5,000 years. It has been widely used in China and East Asia because of its effectiveness with minimum or less side effects. Over the last few decades, the trends have indicated a surge of interest in alternative health treatments in developed countries as well.

Chinese medicine provides a wholistic approach: treating the whole person based on Yin-Yang philosophy, not just certain body parts or conditions. Yin represents the biological structures of the human body, while Yang to the functions. To achieve balance and be healthy, Yin (body) and Yang (function) should be in harmony with each other.
Excessive Yang means that the body is exhausted by over function; deficient Yin means that the body is not strong enough to function properly. In complementary, the body provides bio-energy for function, and normal functional activities keep the body healthy. The available bio-energy for functional activities is called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). The Qi (bio-energy) circulates in the human body through meridians (or channels), just as blood circulates in the veins. The body enjoys good health in a well-balanced Qi system. If the bio-energy circulation is abnormal, the body suffers indicating an illness or disease.
