Massage may have some medical value. TCM has no value and amounts to one giant medical fraud (like chiropractic). Really, if not for the political clout of Chinese "doctors," TCM would have been banned long ago, much like the Daoist priests who psychically diagnosed people's illnesses.
On that note, Taiwan is just brimming with snake-oil nostrums. I remember from Michael Turton's blog that Ma Ying-jeou even endorsed one on TV at one point. If you can invent a new medical superstition, you'll get rich here.
It's actually quite painful yet, good..
