What is Traditional Chinese (Tao) Medicine?

TCM/Tao medicine has its origin in ancient Taoist philosophy which views a person as an energy system in which body and mind are unified, each influencing and balancing the other. Unlike allopathic medicine which attempts to isolate and separate a disease from a person, Chinese & Taoist medicine emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole body. We believe that Qi Gong, TuiNa, massage, acupuncture, along with herbal therapy and nutrition are the key tools to wellness. Many people have found Tao/Traditional Chinese methods of healing to be excellent tools for maintaining Optimum health and preventing illness.

Qi Gong
Qigong and its intimate relation the Chinese martial arts, are often associated with spirituality. Therefore, for many centuries the popular imagination has placed it in the province of the religious practitioners. This link is much stronger than with other techniques in traditional Taoist medicine. Qigong was historically practiced extensively in Taoist and Buddhist monasteries as an adjunct to martial arts training, and the claimed benefits of martial qigong practice are widely known in East Asian martial traditions and popular culture.

Swedish massage
This style utilizes long, flowing strokes, often but not necessarily in the direction of the heart. There are six basic strokes: effleurage from the French effleurer, ‘to skim over’, petrissage from the French pétrir, ‘to knead’, friction, tapotement, compression, and vibration. Petrissage is a kneading movement with the whole palm or finger tips, using wringing, skin rolling, compression, and/or lifting. Petrissage is usually applied vertically to the muscle tissue. Oil, cream, or lotion is applied on the skin to reduce friction and allow smooth strokes. Effleurage consists of long, flowing or gliding strokes, performed with open hands. In many massage sessions, effleurage is used as the initial type of stroking, as it has a calming effect when performed slowly. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks

Acupuncture
(from Lat. acus, “needle”, and pungere, “prick”) or in Standard Mandarin, zhe-n bia-n (a related word zhe-n jiu( refers to acupuncture together with moxibustion)[3] is a technique of inserting and manipulating fine filiform needles into specific points on the body with the aim of relieving pain and for therapeutic purposes.According to acupuncture theory, these acupuncture points lie along meridians along which qi, a kind of vital energy, is said to flow.
