From menarche to menopause, hormones play a huge role in our mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing. The beauty of Chinese Medicine is that it takes a whole person approach to healing. We look at factors such as your ancestral heritage, your upbringing, your environment, your mental, emotional and spiritual outlooks, how well you have treated your body now and in the past and habits that are contributing to your current state of health. Utilizing acupuncture, herbal medicine, supplements and nutrition we can treat not only symptoms, but the root causes of them. Below is a list of common issues I treat in the clinic:
As a Mom, one of the best parts of my job is helping other people become parents. I know how hard it can be so when I get baby photos from patients who struggled it makes me really happy.
One of the most amazing things about Eastern medicine is that it utilizes a personalized approach to treat the whole person, not just a diagnosis or disease. No two people are alike and this is taken into consideration when I formulate a treatment plan for you.
For example, say you come to me because you are having trouble getting pregnant, your periods are irregular, you are stressed and overworked, your back hurts, your energy is low and every night you wake up at 2am. These are patterns of disharmony, not just arbitrary symptoms. Your words, your movements, your life story, what you say to me verbally and non verbally are all part of the bigger picture. Any imbalances that I see or hear I work to correct so that your mind, body, and spirit can reconnect and flow smoothly.
You can use this system alone or in conjunction with Western Medicine to help you to conceive. Many couples use acupuncture and herbs to prepare their body for intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization to increase their chances of becoming pregnant.
Eastern Medicine helps your body function more efficiently on many levels. You will be amazed at how good you feel just after a few sessions. Wherever you are in your journey don’t give up. Be patient and try to keep a positive outlook. You will feel better for it!
