Women's Health

Why should you consider treatment?

Many gynecological symptoms, which women have been raised to think of as normal, are in fact, treatable. It is only because so many women have them, that they have become the “norm”.  Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs work together to help women with the imbalances that cause these “norms”. It takes approximately three cycles to treat a woman’s gynecological system.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine:

  • PMS symptoms can be reduced or eliminated
  • Cycles can be regular
  • Periods do not have to be painful
  • Women do not need to “settle” for heavy periods.

Pain & Injury

How can we help?

Through the insertion of needles at specific points, acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own natural pain killers: endorphins anti-inflammatory and anti-stress hormones. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture promotes not only physical healing but also emotional well-being.

Please note that research also supports the use of acupuncture for post-accident patients. Acupuncture presents a valuable therapeutic option – resulting in reduced pain, decreased edema, increased range of motion and reduction of long-standing complaints following accidents.It works in the following ways to help you bounce right back into action:

  • Lessens bruising
