"[via Hannah Wallance] most Chinese medicine schools today teach 'traditional Chinese Medicine' (TCM), the more standardized version popularized by Mao Tse-tung in the 1950s. TCM practitioners use acupuncture, herbs, dietary therapy, moxibustion (burning herbs near certain points on the body), cupping (using heat and a glass cup to create a suction on the skin), and other practices to restore the qi (or 'life force') of the body. Older, more nuanced variations, known as 'classical Chinese medicine,'are enjoying a renaissance as well at schools like Portland's National College of Natural Medicine";
