Basic Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)


Traditional Chinese Medicine is the wisdom and treasure of thousands of years of accumulated experience of medical practitioners. It is effective in the treatment and prevention of diseases.


Basic Concept of TCM

The Holistic Concept is the core theory of TCM. The concept includes integrity of the body and its relationship with the outer world.

TCM holistic approaches are based on the views of whole-body and whole-person, whole-world. Ancient Chinese believe that their existence was closely tied with the universe. Thus they emphasize harmony with nature.

They also believe that the human body is an organic entity and a balanced whole. Although different organs of human body have different functions, they are both different and interrelated to constitute an integrated relationship. That means a person is a whole unit and indivisible. Thus from the Chinese medicine point of view, local pathological changes may affect the whole body, even whole body surface.

Under the guidance of holistic concept, all aspects must be considered when treating a problem.

We should make a comprehensive analysis on the patients’ physical condition as a whole, including their age, lifestyles, medical history, career and mental state, etc., to find out the problem, to make a correct diagnosis and proper treatment.

Diagnostic methods in traditional Chinese medicine include four basic methods: inspection, listening and smelling, inquiry and palpation.

Through these diagnostic methods, we analyze the causes, nature, and interrelations of the disease, provide evidence for the further differentiation of syndromes, and determine the appropriate treatment and medication.

Each of four diagnostic methods is indispensable and complementary to one another. We use them as a whole to obtain comprehensive understanding of each case.
