Traditional Chinese medicine is a style of traditional Asian medicine built on a foundation of more than 2,500 years of Chinese medical practice but informed by modern medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine includes various forms of herbal medicine, massage, acupuncture, exercise and dietary therapy. One of the basic tenets of Traditional Chinese medicine "holds that the body's vital energy (chi or qi) circulates through channels, called meridians, that have branches connected to bodily organs and functions." Traditional Chinese medicine is a broad range of medicine practices sharing common concepts which have been developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, including various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui na), exercise (qigong), and dietary therapy. It is primarily used as a complementary alternative medicine approach.

Yin and yang are ancient Chinese concepts which can be traced back to the Shang dynasty (16001100 BC). They represent two abstract and complementary aspects that every phenomenon in the universe can be divided into. Primordial analogies for these aspects are the sun-facing (yang) and the shady (yin) side of a hill. Two other commonly used representational allegories of yin and yang are water and fire.

Yin and yang symbol for balance. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, good health is believed to be achieved by a balance between yin and yang.
