Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are holistic treatments and therefore have their strength in treating systemic conditions. Hence, this is why traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) may help a variety of women’s health issues, particularly gynaecological conditions, as they are orchestrated by hormones which affect the entire body as a system.
