Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are therapies used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This system of medicine has been in use for thousands of years and has evolved over this time period, as has disease. Within this medicine, different terminology is used to describe specific disease patterns or states of health. TCM views health as a harmonious balance in energy flow, or Qi ("chee"), in the body. When an imbalance in Qi begins to arise, one's health can become affected. There are numerous factors that can cause such an imbalance and it is through restoring this balance that healing can occur.
