Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive system of healing, including acupuncture and herbal medicine. TCM is rooted in the ancient philosophy of yin and yang, which has developed into a practical physical and mental self-care system.

The cardiovascular system performs many vital functions: carries blood rich with oxygen and nutrients, repairs damaged tissue and absorbs toxins from within the body. The energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) that circulates through this system influences all aspects of our lives, including our emotions, physical health and outlook on life. A healthy cardiovascular system will help us maintain an energetic, balanced life.
