What do you like about this subject?

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete system of healing. It can treat any illness as well as maintain health. It often surprises me how powerful it really is. It is very complex and yet simple at the same time. Everyone should experience acupuncture at least once, it leaves you in such a state of calm and with a wonderful feeling of wellbeing.
