acupuncture & traditional chinese medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of health care. TCM is based on the concept of balanced "Qi" (vital energy) that optimally flows throughout the body uninterupted. Disease manifests when this flow is blocked. Using acupuncture, diet, herbs and lifestyle changes such as meditation or exercises, Qi can be restored to a smooth and healthy flow.
Qi = steam (气) rising from rice (米) as it cooks. The energy flow that sustains living beings
