What is this eBook about?

Traditional Chinese Medicine, commonly called TCM after its abbreviation, is without doubt one of the most influential traditional medicine systems in the world.

Its popularity is still growing and recently TCM got an important boost due to its widespread application during the Coronavirus outbreak in China.

In this book we first take a look at the concepts behind TCM, such as the meaning and significance of Yin-Yang, Qi Vital Energy, Taoism, Meridian theory, and the Five Elements, to name a few key items.

Secondly we explore all existing Chinese Medicine treatment modalities: what they are, how and when they’re used, their goals and benefits.

And lastly, we discuss recent and related developments, and how TCM modalities have been blended with other healing modalities.
