Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine
Do you feel let down by your body? or have trouble estimating when your next period will be? We use traditional medicine combined with modern therapies to help you.
Whether you experience hormone problems robbing your energy, causing period pain, or want to optimize your fertility and IVF outcome, we approach your care with a combination mind, body, food, and lifestyle approach. With acupuncture, we tell your body to release and repair. With kindness, we encourage you to make lifestyle changes that are often necessary. In each treatment, you take a pause from your stress. This allows your nervous system to relax and reduces inflammation in your body. We will create a plan with you to help you reach your goal.
When should you use acupuncture?
When you "can't function without coffee".
When your anxiety is higher than the amount of stress in your life.
When you're trying to get pregnant and it's not happening.
When you pee if you sneeze or jump.
When you feel drained and have no libido left.
When you have to take days off because you're hindered by pain.
