For over 2500 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has evolved into a sophisticated system of medicine, influencing millions of people and many cultures across the world.
In brief terms, TCM is systematic view of ourselves and our surrounding world as a whole and considers everything in context. This perspective of “taking whole” is applied to anything affecting our health and overall well being ranging from our diet, exercise, interactions with family and friends, coping with stress, etc. An assessment of our body and our surroundings can help determine whether there is excess or deficiencies that are potentially causing an imbalance.
Yin and yang are terms used to describe relative opposite qualities or manifestations of Qi. If yin is form, then yang is function. If yin is material, then yang is immaterial. Yin refers to aspects or manifestations of Qi that are relatively material, substantial, condensing, solid, heavy, descending, cold, moist, cooling, dark, passive and quiescent. Yang refers to aspects or manifestations of Qi that are relatively immaterial, amorphous, expanding, hollow, light, ascending, hot, dry, warming, bright, aggressive, and active.
Qi (pronounced “chee”) embraces all manifestations of energy, from the most material aspects of energy (your body, the earth, your surroundings) to the most immaterial aspects (light, heat, nerve impulses). It is the central most underlying principal in Chinese medicine. Qi is in a state of continuous flux, transforming endlessly from one aspect of Qi into another. It is neither created nor is it ever destroyed; it simply changes in its manifestation.
