Menopause is a natural part of life. For many it’s an easy transition from one stage of life to the next. For others it means night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, body aches and pains, memory loss and more.
Each woman experiences menopause uniquely. That’s why I customize treatments for the individual. So you can feel your best and enjoy life. Anytime between the ages of 40-60 progesterone and estrogen production begin to decrease which can bring on symptoms that range from subtle to life changing. From anxiety and insomnia to weight gain and joint pain your menopause symptoms can really get in your way. Many women opt for hormone replacement therapy. Natural treatment including acupuncture, herbal medicine and, nutritional support offer an effective alternative.
Acupuncture is highly effective in treating menopause and works to reduce stress while enhancing blood flow, promoting healing of the body’s tissues, restoring cells and balancing energy in the body. Many women are not aware of the body’s amazing ability to heal itself using food, herbs and natural things from the earth along with meditation and other therapies that promote wellness throughout the entire body. In traditional Chinese medicine the body is viewed as a whole instead of various systems and organs. By achieving physical and emotional well-being, many of the symptoms of menopause are eliminated.
When you experience severe hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings or other symptoms of menopause most doctors treat the symptoms instead of the cause. This natural approach is effective for helping balance hormones through holistic methods, lifestyle changes, improved nutrition, meditation, visualization and more.

Will it hurt?
I use new clean, sterile needles for each patient. They are extremely thin and pain free.
Will I have to keep coming forever?
The vast majority of patients don’t need to come in for long-term treatment. Once your condition is resolved it stays resolved.
Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?
Most patients get great results with once weekly visits. We can talk about this further during your free consultation.
