Women's Health

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to correct imbalances that women experience during all stages of life.  Oriental medicine has long recognized that health and vitality can be sustained over a woman's lifetime by restoring balance within the body and supporting the natural production of essential hormones. Our clinical experience has shown some of the greatest benefits of our treatment  have been in the area of women's health.  We have had excellent results in treating gynecological conditions such as:

  • menstrual irregularities and pain
  • PMS
  • endometriosis and fibroids
  • infertility
  • menopausal signs and symptoms
  • anxiety and depression
  • migraines



Acupuncture boosts the effectiveness of high-tech reproductive medical procedures. Studies have found that adding acupuncture to traditional in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments increased pregnancy success.  Studies from the National Institute of Health have shown that acupuncture improved ovulation rates and regularity in women, and increased sperm count and motility in men.  There is also evidence that acupuncture stimulates blood flow and egg production in women who can't or don't want to use fertility medications to help them get pregnant.  


Pelvic Pain


Millions of women suffer from pelvic pain and/ or pelvic floor dysfunction.  We have had success in treating some of the conditions related to this, such as:

  • vulvadynia
  • PID Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • interstitial cystitis
  • urinary frequency or retention
  • sexual pain and dysfunction
  • bowel disorders:  irritable bowel disease, chronic constipation and/ or diarrhea



Menopause is a transitional period marking the cessation of ovulation in a woman's body.  Symptoms vary from mild to severe and are brought on as our body tries to adapt to decreasing amounts of estrogen.  Symptoms may include:

  • hot flashes
  • fatigue
  • night sweats
  • memory loss
  • joint pain
  • headaches
  • mood swings
  • weight gain
