Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back more than 5,000 years ago and includes variety of therapies - acupuncture, cupping, massage, moxibustion, nutrition, herbal medicine, tai chi and chi gong. One of the basic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is that the body's vital energy Qi circulates through the channels called meridians and have branches connected to the organs and functions in the body. A key element of TCM is the holism meaning that the human being is seen as a whole and a part of nature. Although there is some level of skepticism about TCM in today’s society; plenty of studies continue every day to showamazing results andprove the many benefits of the therapies. The main purpose of TCM is to balance the Qi imbalances by expelling the external factors, balancing the internal emotions, removing the blockages from the meridians, freeing the flow of the Qi and blood, balancing the hormones, reducing the inflammation and pain and etc. TCM practitioners are looking at the balance of the body, mind and spirit so they can determine how to restore the Qi, Yin and Yang balance and the good health. The benefits from treatment are numerous including: pain and stress reduction, increased immunity, increased fertility, reduced anxiety and depression, good muscle strength, balance and flexibility. Coming from this it is very important to sharethe knowledge about TCM and enable population to learn more about the advantages of the treatment and slowly accept it as a valuablehealth care treatment
