WHAT IS TCM?
TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a style of traditional medicine based on more than 3,500 years of Chinese medical practice that includes various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (tui na), exercise (qigong), and dietary therapy.
Rings a bell? Yes, the same way Ayurveda heals India with Yoga, foods & needles, so does TCM in Asia with Qigong, herbs & acupuncture. Same principles, same logic, just different words, outfits & spices ;)
WHAT ARE ITS PRINICPLES?
ALL IS ENERGY, ALL IS QI

QIGONG therapy as well as other branches of Chinese Medicine can be reduced to two simple principles - the cleansing of meridians to achieve harmonious flow, and the restoration of yin-yang balance.
