Traditional Chinese Medicine is about striking a balance between yin and yang, the masculine and feminine elements, and it is believed that medical problems stem from an imbalance in these elements.
The concepts which come together to create traditional Chinese Medicine are incredibly complex, but all of them include the fundamental idea that the human body needs to have a balance of energy, or it will be unhealthy. Traditional Chinese medicine views the body as an integrated whole, rather than an assortment of parts which must be treated individually, and it also includes preventative medicine which is designed to prevent the body from getting sick.
To treat patients, Dr. Wu recommends several approaches, many of which have been adopted by other cultures as well. Acupuncture, massage, qigong, and herbs are all techniques for balancing yin and yang in various ways. Acupuncture and massage are both designed to stimulate the body, release blocked flows energy, and bring about a sense of relaxation and well being. Qigong is a daily practice which is followed by adherents of traditional Chinese Medicine to keep their energy in balance, while herbs are available by prescription to treat a wide range of ailments. Dr. Wu also incorporates traditional folk remedies into his treatments.
