What is Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the practice of acupuncture, herbology, diet therapy, massage, and exercises such as Tai Ji or Qi Gong. TCM has a recorded history dating back over 2,000 years. It is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented illness for over 23 centuries. The "Classics of Internal Medicine" is the oldest medical book in China, and contains the framework upon which TCM is based. This art has been continuously refined through the clinical experiences of 200 generations of practitioners. Today, there are many hospitals in China that practice Traditional Chinese Medicine exclusively, and others that combine Eastern and Western healing methods. Scientific research conducted in China, Japan, and North America continues to contribute new treatment methodologies that are being integrated into Western clinics. The World Health Organization, a branch of the United Nations, acknowledges the ability of TCM to facilitate healing of many diseases, chronic injuries, and mental/emotional problems.
