Traditional Chinese Medicine

The development and diffusion of Traditional Chinese Medicine is linked to the legendary name of Huang Ti, known as the Yellow Emperor, who in the classic text Huang Ti nei Ching (written more than 4,000 years ago) illustrates and describes it in the form of a dialogue with the court doctor Qi Bo.

Over the course of evolution, this empirical medicine has been enriched and compared with the various philosophical schools; in particular, Taoist and Confucian thought have given the definitive imprint that still characterizes this fascinating and mysterious science.

One of the basic aspects of these philosophies is the centrality of the man-nature combination: the human being is not seen as an entity in its own right, but considered to be one with the cosmos that hosts it. The laws that govern the universe are the same that govern our body, our mind, our emotions and our spirit.
