Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views health as more than just the absence of disease. In it’s country of origina, TCM is not a new or alternative form of therapy, but is used in it’s state hospitals along with Western therapies. While I was working as an intern in a hospital in Yantai, China, I was exposed on a daily basis to providing these therapies to people who had been receiving it their whole lives.

    How well does acupuncture work for depression and anxiety. I am on 150 mg welbutrin and 10 mg of celexa and would love to be drug free

    I am wondering if you treat lymphatic drainage issues. I have been treated by acunpuncture in the past year and have seen some results. My right armpit has an enlarged lymph node and the inflammation travels down in to my forearm and hand. I really want to diminish as much of the inflammation as possible in all areas. Please let me know if you think this is something you can possibly help me with.
    Thanks,
    Cheryl
