What is TCM

Image result for acupunctureTraditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest systems of medicine in history, with records dating back thousands of years. It is a comprehensive holistic medical system including acupuncture, tuina massage, moxabustion, guasha, and herbal medicine. TCM today has thousands of evidence based research studies recognizing its efficacy with hundreds of different health challenges. Yet it is artistic in nature, partly based on Daoist truths whereby everything is interconnectedfrom the macrocosm to the micrcosim of our universe.TCM is an "energy" system where one part of the body affects every other. 

TCM speaks of "qi" and how it constantly needs to be checked, regulated and balanced within our sometimes stressful lives. When one is tired and pale, qi is deficient. If one has nausea, their qi is going the wrong way. When one suffers from pain, qi is stagnant. Add Yin and Yang and the Five Elements, and one can begin to see just how amazing these simple TCM concepts are and yet how complex they can become if they are not balanced and regulated before escalating out of control. Thus we learn the importance of taking baby steps daily as a method of prevention and quality of life.Using the various meridians/channels/paths throughout our body, TCM acupuncture corrects the flow of qi, amount of yin and yangwhich can cause illness - restoring the body, mind and shen to balance to maintain optimum health. TCM presents a new way of looking at things. At the RCCMT, we clearly explain and demonstrate theories and concepts through our innovative, intensive and comprehensive classes, books, clinics and personalized mentoring staff.
