Treatment Techniques

Historically, eight branches comprised Chinese medicine treatment:

  • Tui na (推拿) - massage therapy
  • Acupuncture and Moxibustion (针灸)
  • Chinese herbal medicine(中药)
  • Chinese food therapy (食疗)
  • Qigong (气功) and related breathing and meditation exercise
  • Tai Ji Quan (太极拳) and other Chinese martial arts
  • Feng shui (风水)
  • Chinese astrology

Modern TCM treatments consist of herbal medicine or acupuncture as the primary method, with other methods such as massage, qi gong, or food therapy playing a secondary role.
