Hormonal Imbalances & Painful Periods

Regulating hormones is one of the shining starts of Chinese medicine. Using a combination of herbs, acupuncture, nutrition and lifestyle modifications, hormones are able to regulate themselves.  This approach is healthier and more beneficial than using synthetic hormones, which often come with side effects and other health risks.

Some of the hormonally-based conditions that can be successfully treated through Chinese Medicine include:

  • Cycle Regulation (too long or too short menstrual cycles)

  • PMS/ PMDD

  • Painful Periods

  • Endometriosis

  • PCOS

  • Symptoms of perimenopause and menopause

  • Adrenal Dysregulation

  • Thyroid Disorders


Anxiety & Depression

Acupuncture serves as a phenomenal treatment for mental-emotional imbalances, whether clinical or situational.  It is a safe, effective, non- invasive approach that can be safely combined with SSRI’s and anti-anxiety medications. Herbs and supplements are also valuable adjuncts when appropriate.


Autoimmune Disorders

Holistic medicine is extremely effective in the treatment autoimmune diseases and the inflammation and other issues that arise due to an overactive immune system. As always, our approach involves looking at the "whole" person and devising a comprehensive treatment plan to help manage symptoms, calm the immune system, and strengthen the body to avoid future flare-ups. Our individualized approach to treatment may include acupuncture, herbs & supplements, nutrition, functional medicine, lifestyle changes and bodywork. Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

  • Lupus

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Connective Tissue Disorders

  • Sjogrens Syndrome

  • Crohn’s Disease

  • Ulcerative Colitis


Musculoskeletal and pain conditions

Sleep Disturbances

Difficulty sleeping over a prolonged period of time can lead to major health issues, including anxiety and depression. Chinese medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, offers a safe, gentle and non habit-forming option to manage insomnia, middle of the night waking and anxiety-induced sleep disorders.
