Traditional Chinese medicine is one of the oldest continuous systems of medicine in history, with recorded instances dating as far back as two thousand years. Chinese Medicine has a long history of addressing muscular skeletal conditions through thousands of years of helping martial artists to improve their performance and better heal their injuries. Most of the time pain or injuries are treated with a combination of acupuncture, cupping, and therapeutic massages. Chinese medicine is quite complex and can be difficult for some people to comprehend. This is because Traditional Chinese medicine is based, at least in part, on the Daoist belief that we live in a universe in which everything is interconnected. What happens to one part of the body affects every other part of the body. The mind and body are not viewed separately, but as part of an energetic system. Similarly, organs and organ systems are viewed as interconnected structures that work together to keep the body functioning.
More Americans are also using acupuncture, herbal remedies and other components of traditional Chinese medicine than ever before. The reasons for this vary, but the increasing interest in, and use of, Traditional Chinese medicine is due in large part to its effectiveness, affordability and lack of adverse side-effects compared to Western medicine.
