In Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) there is a concept called Bow and Ben. Bow are your symptoms – which is usually what drives someone to seek us out.

It seems that most people seek acupuncture to relieve pain. For good reason, as acupuncture is world-renowned for pain relief. For chronic conditions, start with the 10-week pain program. Includes not only acupuncture, but also stretches to re-balance your frame, information on the connection between inflammation and foods, herbal remedies if needed, and more.
