Traditional Chinese Medicine is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism, and has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) looks at symptoms specific to an individual and describes their cause from a combination of imbalances within lifestyle, psyche, nutrition, environmental stress, and trauma. TCM is different from modern western medicine as it recognizes internal organs as a functional interconnected system, and organizes them in a metaphysical manner. TCM is a common medical care throughout Eastern Asia. TCM therapy consists of Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapy, tui na massage, and others.
