TCM-Inspired Activewear

This Ghost Flower Collection Was Inspired by Chinese Medicine Teachings

— June 30, 2020 — Lifestyle
The newest Ghost Flower collection of high-performance activewear was created based on a unique concept—Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM. For years, Ghost Flower has been making activewear designs to support deeper self-healing and this new range specifically supports women with designs that consider the body's natural energy channels and acupressure points with a sewn-in "self-care map" that helps to promote wellness and empowerment.

Central to TCM are the five Chinese Elements: water, food, fire, earth and metal. Each element embodies a different energy and the activewear pieces are equipped with tags that offer an aspirational reminder that the energy of an element can offer inspiration throughout the day. From a more technical standpoint, the designs integrate four-way compression, space dye and seamless design details for comfort and performance.
