Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on the principle that when in health, the body is in a perfect balance of yin and yang. However, in disease, the balance is disrupted due to external influences or an internal deficiency or weakness. The goal of TCM is to restore the body back to balance with the implementation of dietary recommendations, Eastern herbs and acupuncture.
An interesting fact is that the first documented use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) dates back to 500 B.C.!
The ancient and traditional use of tiny needles inserted into specific points along the body’s meridians to invoke their individual functions and obtain its beneficial effects.
Acupuncture can be beneficial for many conditions, including (but not limited to!) musculoskeletal problems, low back pain, constipation, menstrual cramps, menstrual disorders and infertility.
