Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years, being one of the oldest medical systems practiced globally. TCM practitioners use various psychological and/or physical approaches (such as acupuncture and tai chi) and herbal products to address health problems.
TCM is the practice of holistic medicine based on the theory of Yi Jing and traditional healing wisdom and primarily utilizes two methods of treatment: acupuncture and herbal medicine. Acupuncture is the application of needles in different lengths, sometimes with the combination of moxibustion. The doctor would insert needles into different points on the body to achieve therapeutic effects such as dispersing the accumulation of dampness and coldness inside the body, relieving pain, enhancing metabolism and blood circulation. Acupuncture is also applicable for cosmetic purposes such as wrinkle reduction and face lifting. Herbal medicine is another method commonly used to treat illnesses. The holistic approach will effectively enhance one’s general health condition and reinforce the body against potential pathogens.
