Women

One of the most elegant examples of Oriental medicine’s effectiveness is in the area of women’s health. With the assistance of herbs, moxa and acupuncture, many issues or problems can be successfully treated. These include:

  • Menstrual Health: Oriental medicine can regulate and adjust the menstrual cycle

                 Early or late periods

                 Bleeding between periods

                 Pain connected to ovulation

                 Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

                 Amenorrhea (absence of menstruation)

                 Dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain/cramps)

                 Irregular menstruation

  • Menopause (hot flashes, etc.)
  • Leukorrhea/Vaginal discharge
  • Uterine bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum issues
  • Morning sickness
  • Breech presentation
  • Fertility and Pregnancy Issues

As fertility is closely tied to menstrual health, Oriental medicine can help with all pregnancy issues. We work with both partners to increase vitality, and assist in the conception process. We recommend using the Red Earth fertility program prior to dealing with the expense of Western fertility treatments. We will also work closely with Reproductive Specialists to combine the best of Eastern and Western reproductive methods and technologies.

In addition, we offer services throughout pregnancy designed to actively promote the baby’s development and the mother’s health. This includes protocols to aid in helping deliveries be less complicated, such as turning a breech baby. We prescribe a protocol used in Japan by Master Acupuncturist Anryu Iwashina (岩品 安柳), who treats between 80 and 100 breach presentations each year, with an average success rate of 82% over a five year period.

We can tackle infertility issues through the following techniques:

  • Acupuncture
  • Relaxation and stress reduction
  • Dietary habits
  • Abdominal massage
  • Lifestyle modifications to promote better, general health
  • Chinese herbal medicines
