Chinese Medicine

Chinese    Wan    Tang    Gua Sha    

Chinese Medicine - Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is originated in China and has evolved over thousands of years. TCM has two key concepts: Yin (blood, fluid) and Yang (life force, fire). Diseases and disorders are caused by imbalance between yin and yang of the organs. All herbal medicines in TCM are tagged with two properties (warming or cooling) and five tastes (pungent, sweet, sour, bitter or salty). Warming and pungent herbs have effects to tonify yang; cooling and sweet herbs have effects to tonify yin. If a patient has yang deficiency (weakness, coldness, tiredness), then a TCM doctor would use warming herbs to stimulate and warm up the organs for increasing yang. If he has yin deficiency (overheated, dryness, irritated), then the cooling and sweet herbs would be used to cool down and moisturize the organs for increasing yin. Once the patient's yin-yang balance is restored, the illness will be cured.
