Treatments in TCM are typically tailored to the subtle patterns of disharmony in each patient and are based on an individualized diagnosis. The diagnostic tools differ from those of conventional medicine. There are three main therapeutic modalities: 1.

Chinese Materia Medica (the catalogue of natural products used in TCM) 3. Massage and manipulation
