Chinese medicine sees the human body as a holistic organism that has a close relationship with nature and with its external surroundings.
It teaches that illnesses result from a disharmony between man and the universe.
This disharmony can create energetic blocks in the human body that with time will cause blockages
in energy flow, depletion, and weakness, that might make the individual susceptible to illness.
Since the individual is an organic whole it operates not on a physical level only, but on three different levels:
Body, Mind, and Spirit.
