Have You Tried Chinese Medicine?

I am going to a TCM practitioner right now and my gut tells me this is my best bet. I have gone to several TCM practitioners before (some before I knew I had POTS) and they have all told me I have the same thing (blood stagnation, etc.)

What have other people experienced with TCM? Has acupuncture helped? What about Chinese herbs?

I am wondering if anybody has noticed a significant difference with acupuncture. I feel a lot happening in my body during my acupuncture sessions, but I don't notice any improvement.

A side note...I love cupping!!!! This gives my back so much relief!

I have tried acupuncture and all I noticed was that I seemed to be more relaxed after. Also, the same lady who does the acupunture is a herbal chiropractor and she specialized in Chinese medicine. I always felt so good after a chiropractic session with her but unfortunatley our insurance does not cover it anymore. I definitely think Chinese herbal medicine is not a bunch of bologna though because she did all these tests on me by holding her hands above me and feeling my "energy". This was before we knew I had POTS and we were grasping at straws. But, the results of her " tests" were that my autonomic system was out of whack. So she was right!

Been on and off chinese herbs for a number of years. various mixs from various practitioners but funnily enough fairly similar and the same diagnosis which is different to yours interestingly enough. id say that chinese herbs would be in my top three most beneficial therapies ive tried over the eight years.
