A glittering city of bright lights, where history can be seen on the streets. A place where modern, glitzy hotels mingle with ancient ruins and Chinese temples. This is Macao, where old meets new and East meets West. Opulence and luxury sit side-by-side with tradition and simplicity and a journey into the mystery and wonder of Chinese culture is right at your fingertips.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), much like Macao's fascinating history, can be traced back thousands of years. The third oldest form of medicine, it is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism. Using herbs and mind and body practices, these ancient techniques have sought to treat and prevent health problems of the Chinese for centuries. As TCM gains international recognition, it is not uncommon to find modern day practitioners combining their expertise from university programs with wisdom handed down by past generations.
