Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. TCM encompasses many different practices, including acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, tui na, dietary therapy, and tai chi and qi gong. TCM is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years. Traditional systems of medicine also exist in other East and South Asian countries, including Japan (where the traditional herbal medicine is called Kampo) and Korea.
Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a family of procedures involving the stimulation of specific points on the body using a variety of techniques. Acupuncture involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metal needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.  The needles are inserted into acupuncture points.  These points are on meridians that run through a persons body. The points are selected based on TCM diagnosis.

Chinese Herbs
The Chinese Materia Medica (a pharmacological reference book used by TCM practitioners) describes thousands of medicinal substances—primarily plants, but also some minerals and animal products. Different parts of plants, such as the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds, are used. In TCM, herbs are often combined in formulas and given as teas, capsules, liquid extracts, granules, powders or topicaly.



 

Cupping

Cupping is a therapy in which glass cups are applied to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy. Cupping is helpful for pain and soft tissue injury as well as coughing and lung conditions.
