Pain Relief & Injury Management
Acupuncture is most well know for its ability to eliminate pain and treat orthopedic conditions. Many times clients come back and report … “Thank you! That pain I had went away and never returned. Now I’m here for a different issue.” This is more common than not in our practice.
We can treat musculoskeletal pain from sports injuries, accidents & trauma, overuse or repetitive strain. Acute pain always responds the quickest to acupuncture, so getting in for a treatment shortly after an injury will ensure the best results. Chronic pain can also effectively be addressed offering lasting relief.
Through all stages of a women’s life, Chinese medicine & acupuncture offers a plethora of herbal formulas and strategies that treat a broad range of imbalances. We can help with menstrual cycle regulation, painful periods, irregular bleeding and all symptoms of PMS. Fortifying and nourishing women pre-conception, during pregnancy and post-partum ensures healthy mother and child. Once a woman’s cycle begins to wane, acupuncture and Chinese herbs will offer tremendous relief to common menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, irritability and memory difficulties.
Fertility & Pre-conception
Chinese medicine offers a unique and effective perspective for the treatment of infertility. Acupuncture directly increases blood flow and the delivery of oxygen, hormones, and nutrients to the reproductive organs thereby enhancing their overall performance. Most women report more regular menstrual cycles with much less pain within the first two months of treatment. By increasing circulation to the uterus, Chinese medicine assists in healthy implantation through natural conception or ART. We are able to help improve the number and quality of eggs & follicles, facilitate a thicker & healthier uterine lining and prevent recurrent miscarriage. Research has shown that by using Chinese medicine concurrently with IVF and IUI, success rates improve 20-60%. In male patients, acupuncture and herbal medicine can help increase sperm count and improve motility, mobility & morphology.

Stress Relief and Overall Wellbeing
Balance is the word that most clients use to describe what they get from our care.

Acupuncture is a very calming experience that leaves the recipient feeling more grounded yet clear and focused. We place an emphasis on preventative care and regular treatments will ensure a state of health.
Optimizing health and vitality while bringing patients into balance are the cornerstones of Chinese medicine.
