The inner mechanisms that guide the cycles of a woman's body are both amazingly complex and intuitively wise. Our bodies are a finely tuned eco-system that rely on the proper functioning of all parts in order to maintain a healthy balance. Emotional and physical stress, poor eating habits, lack of sleep, and not enough exercise are triggers that upset the natural flow and cause the disease process to begin. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) assists women in connecting to their body's inherent healing wisdom in order to establish health and harmony.
