You may notice athletes or celebrities with purple circles on their skin from cupping. Or maybe you know someone who swears by acupuncture for their back pain or herbal teas for colds. More and more, people use practices like these from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to not only fight disease, but also prevent it. TCM is an ancient system of health and wellness that’s been used in China for thousands of years. While Western medicine focuses mainly on treating disease, TCM looks at your entire well-being.
What kind of practices does TCM use?
*Acupuncture: very fine needles placed gently in the skin
*Herbs: teas, powders, and capsules made mostly from plants
*Cupping: heated cups that create suction on your skin
*Moxibustion: dried herbs burned near the skin
*Meditation: a way to sit quietly and calm your mind
*Tai chi: exercise with slow movements and focus on the breath
