Chinese Medicine has long addressed women’s needs with a broad and holistic approach.

Women's Health

The specialty fu ke, or women’s medicine, was developed to understand the importance of the womb and the more complex balance of health in women’s bodies. Today, women’s health is still a strong specialty in Chinese medicine with millions of women seeking acupuncture for help with hormone balance, menstrual issues, pain, infertility, pregnancy symptoms, menopause, and overall wellness.

Period and Hormonal Health

Acupuncturists pay keen attention to the menstrual cycles of our patients. This often-overlooked vital sign holds vast amounts of information about our reproductive and general health. Many women suffer from period-related troubles like irregular cycles, painful cramps, spotting, fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, hormonal headaches, acne, or digestive changes. Acupuncture treats the root causes and hormonal imbalances present to promote improved gynecological health.

Fertility

For many couples, building a family can be a challenging, frustrating, and stressful experience. Thankfully, Chinese Medicine offers natural and safe solutions for both body and mind so you can focus on the excitement and magic of it all. Acupuncture is used with both natural fertility attempts as well as assisted reproductive technology (medicated cycles, IUI, IVF) by balancing hormones, relieving stress and anxiety, and increasing the chance of healthy pregnancies.

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the body undergoes so much change and transformation. Having a holistic partner through this incredibly amazing time in life can make all the difference in your physical health, your mental health, and your baby’s health. Acupuncture safely treats symptoms like nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, back pain, sciatica, round ligament pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, breech presentation, gestational diabetes, and delayed labor. After delivery, acupuncture is helpful in treating postpartum depression, low milk supply, breast inflammation, anxiety and stress, fatigue, and encourage the return of vibrant health to mom.

Menopause

As with all other transitions in life, acupuncture is a key resource for moving through menopause with ease. Due to its ability to regulate and balance hormones, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine helps to relieve menopause-related concerns such as hot flashes, night sweats, dryness, anxiety, depression, weight changes, low sex drive, and more.
