Answer: TCM stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years in China and other parts of East Asia. It is a comprehensive framework that includes various practices and concepts aimed at promoting health, preventing and treating illness, and achieving balance within the body and the surrounding environment. TCM is deeply rooted in the philosophy of Taoism and the concept of balance between Yin and Yang, as well as the flow of vital energy known as Qi (pronounced "chee").

Herbal Ingredients is one of the key components in TCM.

TCM utilizes a vast array of natural substances, such as roots, leaves, seeds, and minerals, to create herbal formulas that are tailored to an individual's specific needs. These formulas are designed to restore balance and promote healing.

  3. Cupping: Cupping involves placing heated glass cups on the skin to create a vacuum, which is believed to stimulate circulation, remove toxins, and alleviate pain.

  4. Moxibustion: This technique involves burning a dried plant material called moxa near the skin to stimulate specific acupuncture points. It is often used to promote the flow of Qi and address certain health issues.

  6. Massage and Bodywork: Tui Na is a form of Chinese therapeutic massage that focuses on stimulating specific points and meridians to alleviate tension and promote healing.
