Women’s Health

Healthy at every age!

As a woman, you’ll face unique challenges in each decade of life. Our goal is to help you reach your fullest potential through good physical, mental, and emotional health. 

Balancing Hormones and Restoring your Health

Every woman’s health care needs are unique. I offer a natural and integrative approach to women’s health. I utilize advanced diagnostic methods, acupuncture, whole food supplements and herbal medicine, nutrition therapy, and lifestyle counseling to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms to promote health and vitality.

These are a very safe, natural and effective way to restore balance to the endocrine system, enhance fertility, support you throughout each stage of pregnancy, restore health and wellness post-partum, as well as, address most menstrual and menopausal issues. 

They can be used as a complement to any western medical approaches you may already be utilizing.

Teens & Adolescents

As a young woman, hormone levels are dramatically shifting. This is a crucial time, as it is often a time when doctors suggest hormones to treat common symptoms that teens may be facing such as stress, anxiety, PMS, and irregular cycles.

As we know, hormones such as the birth control pill can potentially offer you relief, but it will not fix the underlying imbalance causing the symptoms. 

Then many years down the road when you want to get off the hormones, or want to conceive, that imbalance is still there.  These imbalances are a sign that the hormones are not functioning optimally, and now is the time to correct them, so that you can start out strong on the road to life-long health.

I love working with young women to balance hormones, treat symptoms such as:

If hormone symptoms go untreated, then a variety of issues can emerge.  They begin to take root and cause more pronounced signs and symptoms.

Some common symptoms of imbalance you may be experiencing may include:

It is my passion to treat these conditions, because as a woman I know what it’s like to feel healthy and vibrant, but I also know how horrible it can feel when hormones are not in balance. Together we can begin to go deeper into root causes of illness as we re-balance your physiology and establish a strong foundation for health.

Fertility, Pregnancy & Postpartum

Having a healthy foundation is essential and can greatly increase your chances for conception, either naturally or with the help of reproductive procedures. Taking the time to prepare your body for conception and pregnancy not only produces healthier egg quality, but it also creates an optimal environment for your growing baby.

Acupuncture is completely safe during pregnancy, and is proven to be extremely beneficial and effective for a variety of common ailments you may experience while you are with child. We can also help prepare the body for labor, and create a smooth transition into the fourth trimester.

Perimenopause and Menopause

Menopause can be a big transition for women on both a physical and emotional level. The healthier and more balanced your body is before menopause begins the smoother the transition will be. However, there are many things we can do to alleviate the unpleasant symptoms that arise after menopause has already begun.

As hormone levels decline, you can feel like a completely different person, experiencing a wide range of symptoms that include:

There is hope beyond hormone replacement therapy! If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then this is a very important time to seek care. By treating the body as a whole, and supporting the entire endocrine system, we can support and help you to move through this transition with greater ease and less symptoms.
