TCM is widely used in the Sinosphere [1] [2] [3] [4] where it has a long history, and in later years it is also increasingly practiced across the globe. Concepts of the body and of disease used in TCM reflect its ancient origins and its emphasis on dynamic processes over material structure, similar to European humoral theory.
