How we can help

Common conditions we treat

Hormonal Balancing

Going through the changes that come with being a female don’t have to be as challenging as we think. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been successfully treating hormonal imbalances since 476 BCE. Today, research shows that acupuncture influences the production and circulation of hormones in the body. It also stimulates the production of “feel-good” neurotransmitters like endorphins. Neurotransmitters are closely associated with hormones thus acupuncture affects our mood as well. This treatment has been proven to balance hormones, ease hot flashes, mood swings, and soothe menstrual irregularities associated with menopause.

Pain Relief

Acupuncture has been demonstrated in clinical trials to be effective in treating acute and chronic pain as well as treating the underlying causes of pain. It can safely be used in conjunction with pain medications and other conventional treatments.

This treatment can include:

· Pain-relieving acupuncture,

· Microcurrent therapy,

· Infrared therapy,

· Analgesic topical patches applied after your treatment.

Stress Relief

For those with a lot of stress but not a lot of time! Acupuncture has been proven to increase circulating levels of serotonin, noradrenalin, and dopamine, the “feel good” neurotransmitters.This drug free treatment includes a relaxing and balancing acupuncture treatment and infrared therapy.

Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a virtually painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging. Based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, it helps the whole body look and feel younger by addressing the physical, mental and emotional patterns that cause disease and contribute to the aging process. The use of acupuncture to slow the visible effects of aging began in China in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). Emperors and empresses were the only ones allowed to receive this powerful treatment!

Fertility

The tradition of treating gynecology was first documented in writings from the Shang Dynasty. Acupuncture can optimize a woman’s reproductive health in preparation for conception thereby boosting fertility naturally. More specifically, we can balance the hormonal cycle, improve the quality of fertile mucus, regulate ovulation, promote an efficient menstrual bleed, enhance egg maturation, and increase the success rate of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) while minimizing the side effects of ART drugs.
