Holistic nursing practices holism and holistic modalities to create a healing space and optimize the healing process. Holistic nurses employ a complementary and integrative focus in their work and help patients access their greatest healing potential.

An overview of the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the development and milestones of acupuncture and moxibustion in past dynasties is presented. In particular, the development of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in the last 20 years, as well as how social and economic conditions have impacted their expansion, is discussed.
