Women's Health and Fertility

Chinese Medicine has been treating women's health issues for thousands of years and is regarded as being quite successful at resolving issues such as painful periods, migraines, and PMS. Utilizing a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine, your practitioner will treat you as a unique person, not a disease. Women have a complex hormonal system which can be thrown out of balance easily by stress, diet, and environmental toxins. We use a combination of TCM and Functional Western medicine to diagnose and treat these hormonal imbalances at their root level.

Some of the gynecological issues that TCM can treat

One of the most exciting blends of Chinese and Western medicine is in the area of fertility. Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture and herbs in conjunction with IVF or IUI (in-vitro fertilization and intra-uterine insemination) techniques help to improve conception rates. Acupuncture alone can be up to 40% successful in treating fertility issues. A recent study shows that acupuncture and herbal medicine in conjunction with IUI improved conception rates from 39.4% (IUI alone) to 65.5%. Some studies show that acupuncture can even improve sperm count and motility.
