Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest and continually practiced literate medicine in the world. It is a 5,000+ year-old system of balancing the body’s own health-preserving forces. Optimum conditions for maintaining and restoring wellness are achieved by using the powers of your unified mind/body/spirit. This approach creates self-healing opportunities not available through traditional Western medicine. Unlike Western medicine that views the body as a composite of analyzable tissues, biochemical reactions and organ and glandular functions, Chinese medicine views the dynamic life process through the interconnected relationship of Essential Substances, Organ Systems and Channels. These terms describe the internal working of the mind/body/spirit in ways that are significantly distinct from Western ideas.
