What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Techniques in TCM assume that energy that normally flows smoothly through the body gets stuck in certain places when we are not feeling well.

TCM treatment usually consists of acupuncture, which involves the insertion of sterile needles at carefully selected key points. These acupuncture points are located along the lines of meridian that the energy flows. The purpose of acupuncture is to stimulate the energy (called Chi) to flow.
