TCM is a sophisticated science that has been constantly refined for the last 3,000 years. It is a complete medical system that includes a wide variety of therapies including acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, medical massage, and Qigong.

Unlike other forms of medicine, TCM treats both the underlying cause of a disease as well as its symptoms. At its core, TCM seeks to restore dynamic balance in the body as all diseases are understood as a departure from homeostasis and normal physiological functioning.
