About Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on meticulous observation of nature and the human body. It considers how our bodies interact with the environment, including the seasons, weather, time of day, and all aspects of life, including our diet, and emotional states. The heart of TCM is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced "chee"), or Vital Energy, flows throughout the body. Qi regulates a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of Yin and Yang.

The health of a person is influenced by the quality, quantity and balance of Qi. Disease is proposed to result from the flow of Qi being disrupted and Yin and Yang becoming imbalanced. Qi circulates through specific pathways called meridians or channels.  There are 14 main meridian pathways throughout the body.  Each is connected to specific organs.  Meridian pathways transport Vital Energy or Qi to nourish and energize every cell, organ, gland, tissue, and muscle.  Any obstruction of Qi anywhere in the body will hinder the distribution of nourishment that the body needs to function optimally.

Other TCM therapies include electro-acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, Tui Na massage, Qi Gong and Tai Ji.
