Acupuncture is often supplemented with traditional Chinese herbs to complement or enhance the results of therapy. The practice of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) was recorded as early as
300 B.C., with herbs playing a major role in treating disease and promoting health. TCM employs more than 3,000 herbs, 300 mineral and animal extracts, and more than 400 formulas that can be
taken as teas, pills, tinctures, powders, or syrups.I obtains herbs only from companies that follow good manufacturing processes, which include laboratory testing to verify the quality and
safety of the herbs. I can also customize herbal formulas to meet the specific needs of any client.
A wealth of evidence-based research exists confirming the efficacy of acupuncture for stimulation of various neurotransmitters, endorphins (the body's natural pain killers), and blood circulation, as well as regulation of the autonomic nervous system. IO clients use acupuncture to help with successful treatment of:
* Musculoskeletal pain and inflammation, including management of fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndromes
