Women’s Health


A woman’s body goes through many different hormonal cycles in the course of a lifetime. These changes start at puberty with menstruation, then again with pregnancy, and eventually through menopause. A woman’s body is in a constant state of change. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine work to restore hormonal and emotional balance and overall vitality to women during any stage of their journey.

Menstrual Disorders

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help regulate the menstrual flow without the aid of birth control pills by helping to achieve the correct rhythm and flow of the period while working on the endocrine system to restore better hormone function and help symptoms such as:

  • Irritability
  • Emotional instability
  • Cramps
  • Breast tenderness
  • Digestive issues
  • Clotting
  • Headaches
  • PCOS
  • Lack of ovulation [anovulation]


Not only can acupuncture help with regulating the menstrual cycle but it can help with fertility and those trying to conceive. The inability to get pregnant can be due to unforeseen reasons:

  • Fibroids
  • Lack of ovulation [anovulation]
  • luteal phase deficiency
  • Endometriosis
  • PCOS
  • Low sperm count or motility issues [in men]

For women trying to get pregnant, acupuncture and herbal medicine promote conception by boosting blood flow to the pelvic organs, providing them with better nourishment, normalizing FSH levels, balancing estrogen and progesterone levels, increasing follicle size and improving and strengthening the lining of the uterus; therefore, promoting conception and a healthy, full-term pregnancy.

Acupuncture not only helps the body get ready to be pregnant but helps women relax and de-stress, so their bodies can become pregnant more easily. Stress causes the sympathetic nervous system to be overstimulated causing blood flow to be diverted away from the ovaries and uterus to the adrenals instead and contributes to a potential inability to become pregnant.

Side Effect of Clomid Use

Many women use Clomid to help promote ovulation during IUI. However, Clomid often causes the uterine lining to become thin, which is detrimental to becoming pregnant. Acupuncture can help the uterine lining to thicken and become more uniform by way of increased blood flow to the uterine arteries which then aids in the ability to get pregnant.


During menopause, acupuncture and herbal medicine can eliminate:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Sugar cravings while promoting weight loss
  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Relieve pain
  • Reduce emotional stress
  • Stabilize mood swings

Acupuncture treatments can also minimize osteoporosis and poor mental function by increasing clarity and focus while also treating anxiety and depression often associated with menopause
