Traditional Chinese Medicine
Many mind and body techniques used in Traditional Chinese medicine, such as acupuncture and tai chi, could help improve the quality of life and many other symptoms of pain. TCM may not be used as a substitute for conventional or allopathic medicine, particularly for serious disorders, but when used as a complementary treatment it can be of great value. Progress and interest in Traditional Chinese medicine is gradually growing. Potential researchers could diversify the research scope for prospective TCM studies, extend the horizon of Traditional Chinese medicine's cognitive insights and expand the technical awareness of Traditional Chinese medicine research.
