Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) focuses on Qi (pronounced “Chee”), that is the life energy that flows through the body. It has been practiced for thousands of years based on the study of the flow and impact of Qi (energy) in the body. TCM therapies include Chinese herbs, acupuncture, cupping and Qigong.
