Womens' Health

A woman’s body goes through many different hormonal cycles in the course of a lifetime. These changes start at puberty with menstruation, then again with pregnancy, and eventually through menopause.

A woman’s body is in a constant state of change. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine work to tackle hormonal imbalance and restore women's health during any stage of their journey.

For young women just beginning to menstruate, acupuncture can help relieve cramps and mood problems. The menstrual cycle can be made to be more comfortable and regular so that it won't interfere with normal activities.

Acupuncture combined with herbal medicine sometimes can help restrains heavy bleeding associated with fibroids and endometriosis and relieves pain.

For women in menopause, hot flushes (power surges) and night sweats can be greatly reduced to make this time of transition much more comfortable. Treatment focuses on stopping excessive sweating and restoring restfulness.
