Acupuncture and Traditional Eastern Medicine (TEM) offer a safe, natural and effective way to support your physical and emotional health.

A Whole-body approach to healing Acupuncture and TEM take a holistic, and whole-body approach to health.  Qi is the vital energy that animates the body and flows through pathways called meridians to nourish all of the body’s organs. When there is an imbalance or blockage in the flow of Qi, the cells, tissues, muscles and organs will receive an inadequate amount of your bodies vital energies.  When this occurs, physical symptoms relating to various medical concerns may result.

Acupuncture for Women’s Health – PMS     

Fibroids and Endometriosis     

Changes in your period can have a number of causes. If you start experiencing intense pain or heavy bleeding, you need to go to clinic.

Uterine fibroids are one of the more common causes of menstrual problems for women in their age 30-40. Fibroids are non-cancerous lumps that can grow on the uterus and in some cases can cause long, heavy periods, pain during sex, and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the stomach.

Endometriosis also affects many women in their age 30-40.  It occurs when uterine cells start to grow outside the uterus, and can cause low back pain during menstruation, pain during sex, nausea, vomiting, or fatigue.

Acupuncture can significantly relieve the painful periods often associated with these and other conditions.
