Chinese Medicine includes the Yin-Yang theory of balance, a 'Five Phase" theory coordinating organs within categories of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood; the concept of qi, a vital life energy flowing throughout the body along Meridian pathways, Acupuncture and Acupressure; herbology; and Nutrition.
