The practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) may be as ancient as China itself. For over 5,000 years, Chinese physicians have used herbs, acupuncture, massage and the mysterious discipline of Qigong to prevent disease and treat ailments.

Today, in modern China, TCM remains a trusted and integral part of healthcare. Yet, in Western countries, most healthcare professionals have only a cursory knowledge of this ancient and effective modality.
