Longhua Chinese Medicine: inherit and improve global influence of Chinese Medicine
With a history of more than 2,000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is seen by many as a national treasure in China for its unique theories and practices, and plays an important role in Chinese healthcare system today. Nevertheless, TCM has finally proven its value in the international stage.
