Empower Your Well-Being: Acupuncture for Women's Health Issues


the phases of the menstrual cycle

Acupuncture is a tried-and-true treatment for women’s health issues. Acupuncture has been shown to have a nuanced, profound effect on the endocrine system, because it can influence hormonal imbalances and improve the functionality of intact reproductive structures.


The most common menstrual irregulaties we see and treat are PMS, painful periods, endometriosis, PCOS, amenorrhea, hot flashes/night sweats, heavy periods, and issues with fertility.


While acupuncture can relieve symptoms and regulate the cycle, herbal formulas are added to the course of treatment for even stronger effects. Chinese herbs are a powerful, nutritive superfood, and need to be prescribed by a licensed herbalist for the safest and best results. In our clinic, the majority of the formulas we prescribe are customized individually, and filled by a pharmacy that uses third-party testing to ensure the herbs are of the highest quality and pesticide-free.

From an Eastern medicine perspective, the sign of a woman's good health is reflected in the regularity of her menstrual cycles. In our experience, when this baseline is restored, the other phases of a woman's health occur more smoothly, from conception to perimenopause and menopause.
