Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system, originating in China, that has been developing for over 5,000 years. Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the body as a whole, and promotes a patient's overall wellness, while simultaneously relieving the patient's complaint(s). The type of traditional Chinese medicine that I practice has been around for 2,000 years. There are five spokes to traditional Chinese medicine which are acupuncture, Tui Na (Chinese medical message), nutrition, herbal therapy, and Qi Gong(internal martial arts). Acupuncture has been increasing in popularity since the New York Times reporter James Reston went to China to cover President Nixon’s trip in 1971.
