Practitioners of TCM refer to energy within the body as Chi. There are defined channels in the body through which Chi flows. The energy is balanced in YIN and YANG channels. Blockage in the flow of Chi or an imbalance in YIN or YANG energy is felt to cause disease. For thousands of years, these principles have guided Eastern Medical techniques. Restoring a healthy Chi flow and balancing YIN and YANG energy continue to be the goals of the practitioner of TCM. Treatments employ a variety of modalities, including acupuncture, bodywork therapy and herbal therapeutics.
