Classical Chinese Medicine
Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM)is a comprehensive medical system based on the writings of various sage-physicians over the last 3,000 years. It provides profound understandings and treatments of the whole person. Just as energy is understood as both a particle and a wave, the body can be seen as dense, solid matter as well as an electromagnetic field, with the tangible and intangible constantly informing one another—both in pathogenesis and in the healing of imbalances. Chinese Medicine employs this knowledge through the vibrational component of bodywork and the more material elements of herbs and nutrition.
