Traditional Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive system of healthcare that has existed
for over 3,000 years in China. It recognises the human body as an organic whole,
which should exist in harmony with the universe and all the parts are interconnected
and interactive. It has its own profound theoretical framework and provides unique
therapies such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tui Na, Tai Chi, etc.
Good health is not just the absence of pain or disease. According to traditional
Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy moving
in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. The energy
is known as Qi.
The aim of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is to regulate the Qi circulation
in the channels and therefore restore the internal balance of the body.
