What Is TCM?
A Pathway to the Life You Want
TCM, or Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a profound pathway
to create the life you truly want to live, the life you were born to live.
It’s a timeless bridge that can initiate and support change and growth in any
and every life dimension: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
An Ancient yet Completely Modern Healing System
TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) has the power to unlock
your true potential and help you develop and use your own unique gifts and
talents. Its insightful wisdom and ability to understand and address individual
health needs empowers each person with a way to unite body, mind, and
spirit—the foundation for lasting, authentic health. TCM teaches you how to
live a life of balance, wellness, and harmony.
It’s true that TCM is one of the oldest healing systems on
the planet. It has actually been in continuous practice for thousands of years.
How can something so old still work for people living today—in your life?
TCM can be effectively applied to help heal anyone and any
health issue no matter what year it is because it’s rooted in unchanging
natural law, which has its source beyond time. This unique paradigm of medicine
grew out of penetrating observation of how everything in our reality functions
at the deepest, invisible levels and interacts with the surface or visible
physical levels. It’s a medicine of extraordinary relationships. Every TCM
principle, theory, and healing practice reflects and harmonizes with the
relationships that exist within natural law.
Four Key TCM Principles
1. Your body is an integrated whole. You are a complete
package. Each and every structure in your body is an integral and necessary
part of the whole. Along with your mind, emotions, and spirit, your physical
body structures form a miraculously complex, interrelated system that is
powered by life force, or energy. Everything you need to heal yourself exists
within your being.
2. You are completely connected to nature. Changes in
nature are always reflected in your body. TCM takes into account the particular
season, geographical location, time of day, as well as your age, genetics, and
the condition of your body when looking at your health issues.
3. You were born with a natural self-healing ability. Your
body is a microcosm that reflects the macrocosm. Think about it: nature has a
regenerative capacity, and so do you. Sometimes, this ability may appear to be
lost or difficult to access, but the good news is, in most cases, it is never
completely gone. TCM helps you recharge this self-healing function.
4. Prevention is the best cure. Do you know your body is
continually revealing signs about the state of your health? Let’s face it, it’s
common to ignore these signs or symptoms until something more complicated
arises. Yet this is not an effective personal healthcare strategy. TCM teaches
you how to read the language your body communicates to you with and be
proactive about your health.
