How Can Chinese Medicine Help?

Traditional Chinese medicine has a long history of clinical success in treating gynecological issues that date back over 2,000 years. In treating peri-menopause or menopausal symptoms, Chinese medicine offers a holistic approach without the side effects commonly found with western treatment protocols. For most patients experiencing menopausal symptoms, we use a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine in our treatment plan, as well as nutritional guidance and recommendations. In helping you restore your body to a state of balance, our treatment sessions go beyond the basics, incorporating everything it takes to help you achieve faster, longer-lasting results. Whether it’s insomnia, irritability, hot flashes, or night sweats, we can help you decrease these symptoms naturally. During this time of transition, supporting your body, mind, and emotional well-being is our ultimate goal.
