Acupuncture for women's health

For thousands of years, acupuncture and Chinese medicine has treated the whole range of female issues naturally and effectively. Our healing tradition still carries on today and has an even more important role in modern medicine as so many women cannot tolerate the chemical hormones widely used to treat many female issues. The noninvasive and drug-free benefits of Chinese medicine are especially beneficial for pregnant and nursing mothers as well as babies.


Chinese medicine is a time-tested system of medicine that can address any issues relating to women's health and is a safe alternative to hormones or surgeries. For women who undergo western medicine treatment for challenging conditions such as cancer, acupuncture and Chinese medicine has proven to be excellent adjunct modality to  support western medicine treatment. Many difficult health conditions require both systems of eastern and western medicine collaborating together in mutual support to achieve the best possible outcome.
