“Everything that appears in the physical realm is always connected with energy flow at the invisible level.” – Nan Lu .

TCM can be explained in four key principles:

1. Your body is an integrated whole. Your physical body structures form a complex, interrelated system that is powered by “chi”, or energy.

2. Your body is connected to nature. TCM factors in the particular season, geographical location, time of day, as well as your age, genetics, and the condition of your body when looking at your health issues.

3. You were born with a natural self-healing ability. Nature has a regenerative capacity, and so do you.

4. Prevention is the best cure. Your body is continually revealing signs about the state of your health. It is common to ignore these signs or symptoms until something more complicated arises. TCM teaches you how to interpret what your body is telling you.
