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 to menopause.  A woman’s body is in a constant state of change. Acupuncture and CranioSacral Therapy work to restore hormonal and emotional balance and overall vitality to women during any stage of their journey.

My goal is to work with all kinds of patients who are faced with hormonal and fertility challenges. Not only can acupuncture and CranioSacral Therapy help with regulating the menstrual cycle but it can help with fertility and those trying to conceive. Acupuncture and craniosacral therapy not only help the body get ready to be pregnant but will also help the body to relax and de-stress, to aid the body in becoming pregnant more easily.

Acupuncture and Craniosacral Therapy may help with fertility concerns including:

  • Reducing the stress hormones that interfere with ovulation

  • Increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs which can aid in the repairing of cells, by bringing back nutrients and health to the uterus and ovaries

  • Increasing endorphin levels - the body’s “feel good” hormones

  • Stimulating and normalizing hormone production to promote a balanced endocrine system that allows for more efficient ovulation and fertilization

  • Releasing structural issues and tight muscles that are causing blood flow to be diminished to the uterine cavity

 

During menopause, acupuncture and CranioSacral Therapy may help with the following symptoms:

  • Hot flashes

  • Night sweats

  • Sugar cravings

  • Disturbed sleep patterns

  • Pain

  • Emotional stress

  • Mood swings

 

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