Abstract

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an ancient practice that dates back more than 2,000 years and has evolved into a unique system of diagnosis and disease management that, in particular, employs herbal medicines and dietary therapies but in addition utilises acupuncture, massage and qigong (meditation, breathing and movement) exercises.1,2 It is especially popular in Hong Kong and, following legislation to establish the Chinese Medicine Ordinance in 1999 and subsequent registration of TCM practitioners via the Chinese Medicine Council of Hong Kong, has seen widened patient participation.
