Women of all ages can benefit greatly from acupuncture and Chinese medicine. For young women beginning to menstruate acupuncture and herbs help relieve cramps, PMS, and mood swings. Acupuncture and herbs stop heavy bleeding and pain associated with fibroids and endometriosis.
For women trying to become pregnant, acupuncture and herbs help solve problems of infertility as well as supporting healthy pregnancies and restoring and replenishing after childbirth. For women in menopause, acupuncture and herbs greatly reduce hot flashes, and night sweats and help.
Women deal with a unique, and beautiful struggle throughout their lives. In order to stay in step with fast paced lives this requires adaptation to constant hormonal, emotional, physiological, and psychological transitions with incredible grace. Additionally women’s busy lives leave little time for self-care, attention to healthy diet, and awareness of how to protect, prevent, and treat disease holistically. Chinese medicine sees a woman at every stage of her life as being of a unique constitution with specific needs to remain balanced. I seek to enhance women’s strengths and bring a sense of ease to difficult transitions with acupuncture, herbs, cranio-sacral, Chinese massage, and gardening therapies.
