What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes a range of traditional Chinese medicine practices. Established for hundreds if not thousands of years in East Asia, TCM is increasingly considered an alternative medical system in the Western world.

TCM includes Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and Shiatsu massages. Qigong and Taijiquan are also closely associated with TCM.
