For centuries TCM has helped cisgender people with problems associated with hormonal imbalance. In the modern world, many of the hormone therapies employed by the transgender community have side effects associated with the same kinds of hormone fluctuations. Whether it be hot flashes from masculinizing therapy or low libido from feminizing therapy, TCM has 2000 years of experience in dealing with a wide range of conditions that result from hormonal imbalance.
TCM also has enormous benefits for those recovering from gender reassignment surgery. Circulation during this recovery time can be greatly enhanced with TCM and can help prevent such post surgical problems as anorgasmia, lack of sensation, and scarring.
