Traditional Chinese Medicine

A 3,000 year old holistic system of medicine that combines the use of acupuncture, diet, herbal therapy, meditation, physical exercise and massage to prevent, diagnose and treat disease. It is based on the belief that qi (the body's vital energy) flows along meridians (channels) in the body and keeps a person's spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health in balance. Traditional Chinese medicine aims to restore the body's balance and harmony between the natural opposing forces of yin and yang, which can block qi and cause disease.
