What if you could naturally regulate your cycle and eliminate your PMS? Or reduce your hot flashes? What if you were given a natural option for fertility or support for your motherhood journey?
Acupuncture has been used for many years to aide women in their path to wellness. It is our passion to provide education and awareness on the impact acupuncture can have on a woman’s health. We firmly believe women need more options than what Western Medicine alone can offer.
“Traditional Chinese Medicine describes the female reproductive system as a network of energy systems with complementary organs and hormonal responses. This network responds to stress, chemicals, lack of exercise, poor eating, and excess emotions, all of which can put the body off balance.
Acupuncture balances the whole body system.
Think of a large field that gets its water from a network of canals. If one of the canals is blocked at any point, the blockage would not only keep the water from flowing to certain parts of the field, but also cause other parts to get too much water as things back up. Acupuncture is like removing the blockage from the energetic ‘canal’(Lewis,2005)”
The health of the mother directly correlates to the health of her family. We, as women, face a variety of health changes as we age. From puberty to childbirth, all the way through menopause. With all of that change and all of those different seasons, don’t you think we should also be making lifestyle changes to adapt? It is common in our society for women to want to keep persevering through it all when we ultimately should be nourishing our bodies.
Which phase are you in? How are you supporting your body and mind?
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)- in our medicine the health of your period correlates to your overall health. So, even if you came to see us for shoulder pain we are going to ask about your periods because it helps gives us a picture of your overall health. One of the beautiful aspects about acupuncture is that because we work on the body as a whole we can treat your shoulder pain and your PMS!
Unfortunately, we have seen more and more young women get placed on birth control to stop their periods all together because they were having painful periods. We believe this to have an impact on health as it is crucial for women, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, to have periods. With the help of acupuncture, they can come without pain or discomfort!
When energy becomes stagnated, pain that is sharp or intense can occur. Stagnant energy can occur due to years of stress both physical and emotional. Acupuncture can effectively remove the stagnation, therefore calming the mind, reducing pain and balancing the hormones associated with these conditions.
Fertility, Pregnancy, Childbirth–
If you are facing fertility issues it can be very stressful for the mind, body, and spirit. However, there is hope. Incorporating acupuncture into your overall fertility treatment plan can help. Sometimes it’s as easy as simply working to regulate the cycle. For others, it may involve some significant hormonal balancing. These treatments have also been shown to decrease risk of miscarriage. All of these experiences can be extremely emotional, we are here to support you through it.
Acupuncture has also been proven safe and effective for the following during pregnancy: anxiety, stress, back pain, sciatica, constipation, fatigue, heartburn, hemorrhoids and morning sickness.
Preparing your body for labor with acupuncture decreases your chances of medical interventions during labor and increases the chances of shorter labors and natural childbirths.
We also provide one on one sessions for you and your partner on how to properly use acupressure to aid during labor and delivery.
Menopause- hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings, memory problems, vaginal dryness, and changes in libido are all signs and symptoms of menopause. While this may seem like a turbulent time of change, it shouldn’t come as a burden.
Whether it’s time or the needles detering you from making that first appointment, we get it. We can assure you the utmost comfort, restorative relaxation and overall better health. Because, quite honestly, you’re worth it.
Our promise is to work together with you during whichever phase you are experiencing. We would be honored to help you make positive lifestyle changes and soon enjoy the life you were meant to live.
