Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views health as more than just the absence of disease. In it’s country of origina, TCM is not a new or alternative form of therapy, but is used in it’s state hospitals along with Western therapies. While I was working as an intern in a hospital in Yantai, China, I was exposed on a daily basis to providing these therapies to people who had been receiving it their whole lives.
