Health depends on Balance – In TCM health depends on the balance between the opposing forces Yin and Yang. As long as Yin and Yang are balanced, our mind and body stay healthy. The same applies to Qi (life energy), as long as Qi flows in sufficient quantity freely throughout the body, the person stays physically and mentally healthy. Therefore the main goal of treatment is to ensure the balance of Yin and Yang and a free Qi – circulation.
