In many ways, the word “traditional” in traditional Chinese medicine (or TCM) is a misnomer. Controversial for a number of reasons, and often loaded with connotations of Eastern mysticism, the principles behind traditional medicine are very much alive and well in modern Chinese society, and pervade wellness and daily life in often mundane ways.
But as the growing popularity of wellness practices like acupuncture and herbal medicine demonstrate, Eastern wellness might offer us some clues to our health and wellbeing that would otherwise be overlooked by Western medicine.
In our latest Edition, read up on some non-invasive hacks derived from traditional Chinese medicine. Plus, gain a deeper look at how it pervades modern Chinese life — only on RADII.co.
