Are your winter hands as cracked as the ice outside? There are tons of topical treatments – lotions, creams, salves, and ointments with vitamin E, olive oil, lanolin, petroleum, aloe vera, coconut oil… the list goes on and on.

The good news is, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can heal your skin from the inside out. To learn more, call 615-939-2787 to set up your appointment today.
