Theory and Diagnosis of Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM appeared in the ancient China as far as in the Yellow Emperor's Canon of Medicine (compiled in about 475 to 221 B.C.) - believed to be the earliest medical monograph of China, for about over 3000 years of experience.

Basic Theory

Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM practices include such treatments as Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapy, and both Tui na and Shiatsu massage. Qigong and Taijiquan are also closely associated with TCM. Major theories include: Yin-yang, the Five Phases, the human body Meridian/Channel system, Zang Fu organ theory, six confirmations, four levels, etc.

TCM believes that the human body is a small universe unto itself that is a complex system of subsystems of energy and matter, and that these systems work together to maintain a healthy human mind and body. The characteristics of the operation of the system/subsystems of the human mind/body are described in terms of the five elements (metal, water, wood, fire and earth), Ying/Yang organs, deficiency/excess, emptiness/fullness, hot, cold, wind, dampness, pathogenic factors, internal/external, meridian channels, chi (several different types), essences, body fluids, vessels and more.

The body concept in TCM is based on a functional description of human mind/body processes, as opposed to discrete tissues, or specific organic compounds. As a result of using this functional approach to describing the processes of the human mind/body it is possible to treat the entire human mind and body not just the mind or just the body through the therapies available in this system.

Meridians System

Traditional Chinese Medicine

In Chinese medicine, invisible pathways in the body that circulate the flow of blood and, link the individual to cosmic forces or influences, protect the body against external causes of disease, and regulate the yin/yang balance.

Chinese medicine practitioners usually take use of human body points through fire cupping, acupuncture and so on to treat the patients. It is one of the most important part of TCM

Traditional Chinese MedicineFollowing a macro philosophy of disease, traditional Chinese diagnostics are based on overall observation of human symptoms rather than "micro" level laboratory tests. There are four types of TCM diagnostic methods: observe (望 wàng), hear and smell (闻/聞 wén), ask about background (问/問 wèn) and touching (切 qiè).The pulse-reading component of the touching examination is so important that Chinese patients may refer to going to the doctor as "Going to have my pulse felt."

  • Palpation of the patient's radial artery pulse (pulse diagnosis) in six positions
  • Observations of patient's tongue, voice, hair, face, posture, gait, eyes, ears, vein on index finger of small children
  • Palpation of the patient's body (especially the abdomen, chest, back, and lumbar areas) for tenderness or comparison of relative warmth or coolness of different parts of the body
  • Observation of the patient's various odors
  • Asking the patient about the effects of their problem
  • Anything else that can be observed without instruments and without harming the patient
  • Asking detailed questions about their family, living environment, personal habits, food diet, emotions, menstrual cycle for women, child bearing history, sleep, exercise, and anything that may give insight into the balance or imbalance of an individual

Excellence for methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM is defined as a medical science governing the theory and practice of traditional Chinese medicine. It includes Chinese medication, pharmacology/herbalogy, acupuncture, massage and Qigong. The following methods are considered to be part of Chinese medicine.


(from the Latin word acus, "needle", and pungere, meaning "prick") is a technique in which the practitioner inserts fine needles into specific points on the patient's body. Usually about a dozen acupoints are needled in one session, although the number of needles used may range anywhere from just one or two to 20 or more. The intended effect is to increase circulation and balance energy (Qi) within the body.



"Moxa," often used in conjunction with acupuncture, consists in burning of dried Chinese mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) on acupoints. "Direct Moxa" involves the pinching of clumps of the herb into cones that are placed on acupoints and lit until warm. Typically the burning cone is removed before burning the skin and is thought, after repeated use, to warm the body and increase circulation. Moxa can also be rolled into a cigar-shaped tube, lit, and held over an acupuncture point, or rolled into a ball and stuck onto the back end of an inserted needle for warming effect.


Chinese food therapy (食疗/食療)

Chinese food therapy (食疗/食療)It is a practice of healing using natural foods instead of medications. Dietary recommendations are usually made according to the patient's individual condition in relation to TCM theory. The "five flavors" (an important aspect of Chinese herbalism as well) indicate what function various types of food play in the body. A balanced diet, which leads to health, is when the five functional flavors are in balance. When one is diseased (and therefore unbalanced), certain foods and herbs are prescribed to restore balance to the body.

The following is a list of common food classifications:

Chinese herbal medicine

Chinese herbal medicineIn China, herbal medicine is considered as the primary therapeutic modality of internal medicine. Of the approximately 500 Chinese herbs that are in use today, 250 or so are very commonly used. Rather than being prescribed individually, single herbs are combined into formulas that are designed to adapt to the specific needs of individual patients. A herbal formula can contain anywhere from 3 to 25 herbs. As with diet therapy, each herb has one or more of the five flavors/functions and one of five "temperatures" ("Qi") (hot, warm, neutral, cool, cold). After the herbalist determines the energetic temperature and functional state of the patient's body, he or she prescribes a mixture of herbs tailored to balance disharmony. One classic example of Chinese herbal medicine is the use of various mushrooms, like reishi and shiitake, which are currently under intense study by ethnobotanists and medical researchers for immune system enhancement. Unlike Western herbalism, Chinese herbal medicine uses many animal, mineral and mineraloid remedies, and also uses more products from marine sources.

Fire Cupping (拔罐)

A type of Chinese massage, cupping consists of placing several glass "cups" (open spheres) on the body. A match is lit and placed inside the cup and then removed before placing the cup against the skin. As the air in the cup is heated, it expands, and after placing in the skin, cools down, creating a lower pressure inside the cup that allows the cup to stick to the skin via suction. When combined with massage oil, the cups can be slid around the back, offering what some practitioners think of as a reverse-pressure massage.

Fire Cupping (拔罐)

Tai chi chuan

It is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. It is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, and longevity. As a consequence, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some of tai chi chuan's training forms are especially known for being practiced at what most people categorize as slow movement. Today, tai chi has spread worldwide.

Tui na (推拿) massage

A hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist and martial art principles to bring the body to balance. The principles being balanced are the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints (known as the eight gates) to open the body's defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in both the meridians and the muscles. The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points and to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions

Six Don't before receiving the TCM

Don't make-up

Whether the patients have swollen eyelids, bags under the eyes, or how the lips, nail colors are, please don’t make up any more. Doctors should diagnose patients by seeing your "true colors". And don’t wipe rouge, lipstick, eye socket painting, polish nails, which will cover up the disease.

Don't eat the food or drugs easily dyed fur

The food such as milk, soy, bayberry, coffee, orange will change the fur color; drinking hot drinks, alcohol and eating hot pepper before visits will make the tongue red and reduce coating on the tongue.

Don't use strong odor of items

Don’t take food such as onions, garlic, citrus, gum, alcohol, etc., as well as spray pungent perfume which will cover up illness.

Don't do strenuous exercise

Pulse diagnosis is an important means of Chinese medical consultation. Before the visit, patients should keep calm and avoid feeling irritable and doing strenuous exercises which will affect the palpation.

Don't change doctors frequently

The treatment of many diseases needs time, and frequent replacement of medical treatment will only lead to duplication. For common chronic diseases, after 1-2 month treatment without noticeable effect, you can elect to consider the doctor. But be sure to save the past medical records or prescriptions about your therapy.

Don't follow the previous prescription or someone else's prescription

Some people believe that the disease is cured and can keep the prescription for future use when symptoms recur. Also some patients see other people's illness are similar with theirs, they will quickly use others’ prescription. These two ways are both wrong. Herbalist doctors attach great importance to the physical differences between individuals, the disease cause, time, location and expression, so prescriptions are different. Unless the doctor allows, please do not follow the previous prescription, or other prescription.
