Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)
TCM has been around in China for thousands of years. Background is a holistic approach to diseases. Therapy methods are individually developed: The basic concept behind TCM is that the macrocosm finds itself in the microcosm. This means that phenomena of nature also (may) occur in humans and their diseases in a similar way.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the free flow of energy is called "Qi". This should be caused entirely – if possible – by the treatment with traditional Chinese medicine. The human being is supposed to be in harmony with him/herself, his nature and environment. Treatment areas of traditional Chinese medicine are various acute and chronic diseases as well as adjunctive therapy in addition to conventional medicine.
