Nothing stays the same. As we grow and change through the years so do the needs of our bodies, minds and spirits. It is a gift to grow “old”. Acupuncture is a great support not only to the functions of the body but also to the state of our minds, emotions and spirit on the path to fulfilling a life well lived in our higher years and beyond.
Gynecology is a very successful area treated by TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Women receive relief from headaches, painful and/or irregular menstrual cycles, hormonal mood swings, difficulty with menopause and fertility issues. Other problems treated include fibroids, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Acupuncture helps people going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments decreasing side effects, such as nausea, digestive disruption, fatigue, hot flashes, “chemo-brain” and depression. Acupuncture also strengthens the immune system supporting the body, mind & spirit throughout treatment and recovery.
