Views 36.8K
We return again with Dr. Jingduan Yang to address some of your questions about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
What should you expect from your first visit to a TCM doctor? And when would you need to see one in the first place? Is there any use in seeing a TCM doctor if, for example, you break your leg? What if you have cancer, or long COVID?
What if you’re afraid of needles? Does acupuncture hurt?
Dr. Yang will answer all of these questions, and will also explain a little about Qigong: Just like there are physical exercises for your muscles, there are also energy exercises for your energy.
TCM doctors usually recommend that their patients practice Qigong—but how can you know which one is best for you?
