What is TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine
In TCM, every person's health depends on a balance between the opposing forces of Yin and Yang. As long as Yin and Yang remain in balance, the body and mind are healthy. However, if one of the forces is excessively strong or too weak, it leads to imbalance and illness. The interaction of Yin and Yang, cold and warm, passive and active creates a type of life energy known as Qi (pronounced: tschii). Qi flows along clearly recognizable pathways, the meridians or channels, and connects the regions and parts of the body with each other. Just like Yin and Yang, Qi must also be in harmony: as long as sufficient quantities of Qi can flow freely throughout the body, a person is physically and mentally healthy. Dis-eases are caused by disturbed Qi flows. That's why the main goal of the treatment is always to balance Yin and Yang and to ensure free circulation of Qi.
In addition to acupuncture, the most important forms of treatment in Chinese medicine or TCM are treatment with Herbs, Tui-Na massage (translated: pulling and pushing), Cupping, Moxibustion (burning mugwort on a needle to generate heat), and Qi Gong (cultivation of life energy) and a balanced healthy Nutrition.
