This is the question I hear most often in my practice! One of the things I love about Chinese Medicine is how it looks at disharmonies in the entire body, not just one symptom. Therefore it is great to treat a number of disorders, not just those below. If you have any questions about something specific you'd like to come in for, please contact me and I'll be happy to answer your questions.
