The techniques utilized in TCM allow the body to restore balance and harmony, thus achieving optimal function. While western medicine is often reductionistic in approach, TCM views the body as a whole. Diagnosis is based on the conceptual framework of yin and yang, and the interconnectedness of the organ systems. One of the strengths of TCM is in the way it focuses treatment to address the underlying cause of the disease and disharmony.
