Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is built on a foundation of a long history of practice and theory, enabling the body’s natural healing processes to restore better balance and harmony. Fundamental to Chinese Medicine theory is the concept of energy, known as Qi (pronounced chee). Qi flows through a set of channels called meridians in the body. When disruption to the body’s energy flow occurs, it may manifest as disharmony and illness of the body, mind and emotions.
