Traditional Chinese Medicine: Living in Harmony
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a 3000-year old system of medicine that views the body as a complex system whose parts are all interrelated and need to be in balance to experience optimal health.
TCM practitioners believe that an energy called qi (pronounced chee) travels through a complex network of meridians and can become blocked or unbalanced as a result of stress or internal emotions, environmental factors, or poor lifestyle habits (diet, addiction, lack of exercise).
Through years of education and training, and more than 33 years as a TCM practitioner, Dr. Yu Zhu is considered an expert in her field. She easily identifies and understands the unique constitution and characteristics of a patient’s body, its strengths and weaknesses, and recommends TCM therapies that activate the healing potential within the body. TCM includes acupuncture, cupping, massage, and herbal remedies. The goal of TCM is to restore balance and harmony to qi, that ultimately maximizes a patient’s well-being and longevity.
