Traditional chinese medicine tour

Traditional Chinese Medicine (or TCM) has been practiced in China for several thousand years and includes herbal medicine, acupuncture, and message. TCM is based on the idea that the parts of the human body parts are interrelated and are constantly interacting with the environment. Therefore, TCM practitioners look for signs of disharmony in a person’s external and internal environment to understand, treat and prevent illness and disease. TCM theory is also predicated on several philosophical frameworks, including the notion of Yin-yang, the five elements, body’s meridian system, Zang Fu theory and others. Diagnosis and treatment are always carried out with reference to these concepts.

 

Traditional Chinese medicine as well draws heavily upon Taoist philosophy, and the classical Chinese belief that individual human experiences reflect causative principles that effect the environment on all scales. These causative principles, whether material, essential or spiritual are, in fact, expressions of the fates decreed by heaven.
