Chinese medicine, commonly referred to as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), is an ancient system of medicine that has been practiced since at least the 3rd century B.C. throughout Asia. Although it is gaining recognition in the Western world, it is still considered an alternative form of healing and is regulated as such. TCM practitioners diagnose ailments and diseases through clinical observation and looking at the whole person, rather than basing evaluation and diagnosis on laboratory tests, and employ a variety of healing therapies including herbal remedies, acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, Qigong, meditation and breathing exercises.
