Fundamentals of Traditional Chinese Medicine (con't)

Historical Development

The original Chinese Medicine knowledge as we know it spread throughout the Orient over many centuries. The Japanese have been refining it since the fifth century AD. The Koreans, Vietnamese, Indians and Tibetans all have a history of acupuncture use. This has generated an enormously rich heritage. It is many faceted and subject to continuing debate and argument. As such, there is a wide variety of methodologies and techniques in use. Traditionally, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner may take ten years or more to develop their style and area of expertise before finding their own niche within this broad body of traditions.
