What Is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of medicine that has been in use around the world for over 2000 years. Practitioners of TCM are trained in many treatment modalities, the most common of which is acupuncture here in the West. For more information on other modalities, please see our adjunctive therapies page. The system of TCM uses interviewing, pulse taking, looking at the tongue, and palpation techniques to diagnose and choose appropriate modalities to rebalance patterns of disharmony in the body that can lead to illness, pain, and emotional issues.
