The traditional medicine of China is based on regulating the energy of our body with the environment in which we live. Constant change is normal.
As women, we experience change throughout our lives with menarche, pregnancy, birth and menopause. Our bodies are always changing and maintaining balance among the change can be difficult in our daily lives.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is both effective and gentle in assisting the body, mind and spirit regain balance and harmony.
Acupuncture and herbal therapy is effective in relieving the common symptoms of PMS, pain, fatigue, irregular or heavy bleeding, and night sweating. Ovarian cysts can also be treated with proper herbal therapy and acupuncture. With acupuncture therapy, you will experience more balance, relaxation, improved mood, energy, and digestion.
Fertility issues are addressed with acupuncture and herbs as well, increasing overall chances of natural pregnancy, successful IVF, and IUI procedures.
There are many pain conditions that acupuncture can be effective in relieving. With the current opiate use crisis acupuncture has become more well known and utilized for pain relief.
Acupuncture stimulates release of neuro-transmitters that relieve pain, increases circulation to the diseased area, whether it is a muscle, bone, organ, etc, and relaxes muscle. This, along with the correct lifestyle allows your body to begin to heal itself to the best of its ability.
The digestive system is a reflection to how we process our external environment on every level. Do you find life hard to digest? Your digestive system is responsible for taking in and absorbing nutrients that will feed our entire system; mind, body and soul. Without the foundation of a properly nourished body we cannot begin to find the strength to keep up with the stressors of life.
Digestive disorders are all too common today. They can stem from an improper diet, emotional issues, and stress to name a few. Common disorders relating to digestion include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, loss of appetite (or excessive appetite!), heartburn, reflux, burping, or leaky gut syndrome. These respond well to acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. If one’s digestive system is so weak that herbal treatments are not tolerated, a course of gentle acupuncture treatments may be used to gradually strengthen the ability to handle foods and herbs. By taking in the proper nutrition we are able to nourish our bodies, finding increased energy and relief from illness and disease.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has always recognized the strong connection between the body and the spirit, emotions and mind. They are intertwined, feed off of each other, and cannot be separated. We all have experienced how emotions affect our physical body. A common and well-known example is getting stomach pains and/or cramps when feeling extreme stress, or breaking out into a sweat and feeling your heart race when feeling nervous. Not only do we know the emotions can have an effect on the body, but it is important to remember that the state of the physical body can affect our emotional health. The spirit becomes unhappy and restless in an ill body. Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, is a very effective treatment for emotional disorders.
