More about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):

  • TCM theory explains that humans have a natural flow of energy through the body.

  • The TCM theory also states that pain and disease are caused by an imbalance or blockage of this energy, called Qi.

  • The goal of TCM is to help restore balance or harmony to the flow of Qi and thus return the body to a healthy state.

  • This type of holistic care treating the body, mind, and spirit is something Chinese physicians have been practicing for thousands of years.
