Chinese Medicine includes a large array of health practices dating back 4,000 years. These health practices include: herbal therapy, cupping acupuncture, moxibustion, dietary therapy, auricular medicine, and exercises in breathing and movement (tai chi and qi gong). Some or several of these may be employed in the course of treatment.
