China Post has issued a set of four special stamps under the theme "Church of Traditional Chinese Medicine".
Traditional Chinese medicine includes a range of traditional medicine practices originating in China. Although well-accepted in the mainstream of medical care throughout East Asia, it is considered an alternative medical system in much of the Western world.
Traditional Chinese therapy largely consists of Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary therapy, and tui na massage. Main aspects of Traditional Chinese medicine's system of the human body, health and disease are yin and yang, the Five Elements (fire, metal, wood, earth, water), the zang-fu organs (heart, liver, spleen, lung, kidney, pericardium), qi (energy flow), xue (blood), meridians and the Five Exogenous Pathogenic Factors.
