Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient form of healing that began in China 3,500 years ago and is now used by over 2 billion people including 12 million Americans. The goal of treatment is to rebalance the energetic systems, optimizing a person’s function on all levels. Part of the uniqueness of this medicine lies in its holistic concept that the body does not carry out physiological symptoms separately, but as an integrated whole. Another unique characteristic is that it strives to correct the problem instead of merely reducing or controlling symptoms. As preventive care, Chinese medicine provides us an opportunity to treat imbalances before they manifest as disease.
