Oriental Medicine (aka Chinese Medicine) is the oldest, professional, continually practiced, literate medicine in the world. This medical system's written literature stretches back almost 2,500 years. And currently, 1/4 of the world’s population makes use of it. One can say that modern Western and traditional Chinese medicines are the two dominant medicinal systems in the world today.

Isn’t Oriental Medicine just a system of folk healing?
No. This system has been created by some of the best-educated and brightest scholars in Chinese history. The scholars have recorded their theories and clinical experiences from generation to generation in literally thousands of books. It is estimated that there are between 30-40,000 extant books on Chinese medicine written before the turn of the century. Since then, thousands more books and articles in professional journals have been written and published in China, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
