- Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient healing system from China that focuses on the flow of Qi. Qi is the TCM term used to describe the body’s innate force. Its flow influences the entire body and how each part receives energy. If Qi flow is disrupted, symptoms appear. TCM focuses on one’s symptoms to illuminate the area of disruption. Details about one’s life, likes, dislikes, general preferences and specific characteristics of symptoms are used to find a TCM Diagnosis. Treatment consists of herbs and acupuncture to influence the flow of Qi. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a branch of Naturopathic Medicine. Naturopathic Doctors are trained in the theory of TCM and in the use of Acupuncture, but Chinese herbs do not constitute a major part of the TCM training and are left to TCM Doctors. TCM doctors specialize in Traditional Chinese Medicine using Herbs and Acupuncture.
