As a result Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a full range of preventative treatments, diagnostic tools and methods for bringing the body back into balance. Bone loss, hormone imbalance, night sweats, difficulty sleeping, irregular periods, endometriosis and mood swings are just a few of the many reasons that women seek treatment.
