Traditional Chinese Medicine
TCM
Chinese medicine emphasizes the relationship between humans and their environment, the food they eat, and the lifestyle they lead. The body, mind, spirit, and the world we inhabit are viewed as being inseparable, interconnected and subject to the concepts of Yin-Yang, the Five Phases, and Qi. These concepts are strongly infused in traditional Chinese culture.
By the Later Han dynasty (25-220 A.D.), texts known as the Inner Classic and the Treatise on Cold Damage were compiled and became the basis from which Chinese medical theory and practice evolved. These texts concisely outline a complex framework of observations and understandings of the natural world and their relation to health and disease. Descriptions of anatomy, physiology, medical diagnostics, acupuncture protocols, and herbal prescriptions were recorded and used with success ever since. Throughout history, many famous Chinese physicians continued to refine and expand the medicine to include full understandings of a broad range of pathologies. A great wealth of experience and knowledge has been accumulated and stands as a comprehensive medical system.

Today, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is taught in medical schools around the world offering insight to the healing traditions of acupuncture, herbology, bodywork, nutrition, and exercise.
