This medicine has been built by millions of well-meaning health professionals, who have recorded their knowledge in thousands of works, it has over 60,000 titles of medical works, many of them disappeared over time, but influenced many minds who have built this wonderful medicine. TCM, has its own anatomy, physiology, etiology, physiopathology

and of an entire arsenal of therapeutic, preventive, rehabilitating and health enhancing procedures.

On the other hand there is a wide range of other procedures among which stand out: the massage known as tui na and an mo, exercises such as qi gong, moxibustion, guasha, tajiquan (therapeutic), etc. None of these procedures is applied empirically, is guided by a particular diagnostic system known as syndromic differentiation, a therapeutic goal is determined and each procedure must be identified a function, which must conform to the therapeutic goal, adapted at all times the treatment according to time, place and person. TCM due to its own characteristics is highly empathic and can be used in the clinic in an integrative way with other medicines.
