Chinese Medicine recognizes menopause as a change in a woman’s body and symptoms may last anywhere from 6 months to over two years. Relief from symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia can be managed through Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine by balancing the Qi and strengthening internal organ functions.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, and the growth of fibroids or cysts affects most women. Chinese Medicine can successfully treat these disorders by regulating and stabilizing the flow of Qi and Blood.
For most women, these conditions can be successfully treated by stabilizing and balancing the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body with Chinese Medicine, including Acupuncture and herbs.
Our treatment approach is to support and optimize your body functions.
- Improve the circulation of the blood the ovaries, uterus, and endometrium.
- Optimize Liver function to remove and prevent excess accumulation of unwanted hormones.
- Balance and regulate estrogen and progesterone hormones.
Once pregnant every women goes through physical and hormonal changes. We can help you gracefully go through the transition.
Chinese Medicine provides a safe, effective and natural approach to relieve complications during pregnancy ranging from nausea and vomiting to preventing pre-eclampsia, management of fibroids, fatigue, low back pain, headaches, heartburn, hemorrhoids gestational diabetes, and others. We encourage regular treatments throughout pregnancy to prevent complications and increase health of mother and baby.
Studies by the World Health Organization found Acupuncture is effective in relieving labor pains and facilitating pain relief and boost energy without drug use.
We can also aid in post-delivery as well. Acupuncture can help assist in postpartum, relieve pain, and manage weight loss.
PREGNANCY READINESS PROGRAM
This program helps both women and men to reach their optimal health to be ready for conception. We want to make sure the body is nourished, stress free, and balanced hormonally with or without reproductively technologies.
Irregular Menses or Coming off of Birth Control
Chinese medicine offers natural ways to balance and regulate a women’s cycle. Herbs, Homeopathic, Nutrition, Acupuncture, Meditation, Yoga, and other life style changes may help achieve pregnancy. Each patient have a complete evaluation and a custom treatment plan will be created.
CONSIDERING ART (Assisted Reproductive Therapies)
The Reproductive Endocrinologist doctor may recommend IUI’s (Intra-uterine-insemination) or IVF’s (Invitro fertilization). Even with ART (Assisted Reproductive Technologies), this Pregnancy Readiness Program can help increase a woman’s chances of conception and delivering a healthy baby by 42%.
It is important to allow 3 cycles to prepare the body to conceive because it takes about 90 days for your ovaries to make the follicles that contain your eggs. Your egg quality depending on stresses, diet and lifestyle had 90 days to be reflected in today’s eggs. During this time we must prepare adequately.
About the Men
Sperm maturation averages 70-90 days. It is also important for men to receive treatments and explore lifestyle changes as well. The National Institutes of Health states 40% of infertility related cases involve men. We can improve the sperm quality and motility through Chinese Medicine.
As Doctors of Oriental Medicine we view infertility as a disruption of Qi and blood affecting the organ systems.
In studies reviewed by Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York, researchers concluded that Acupuncture helps to:
- Normalize the hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially if Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is an issue.
- Positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis that plays a key role in fertility.
- Regulate the menstrual cycle.
- Increase blood flow to the uterus to improve the chances of ovum implantation.
- Reduce anxiety and stress that may significantly decrease fertility.
Our goal is for conception and a healthy pregnancy. We improve the free flow of Qi and Blood throughout the body and to the pelvic organs to adequately supply blood to sustain a normal menstrual cycle, to successfully implant an embryo within the uterine lining, and to support a growing fetus and a healthy pregnancy.
Amazing! The improvements with my female issues are almost unbelievable as I have tried many, many different things and thought I was headed for a hysterectomy, but now, at this time do not need any surgery. My headaches are also better – he really helped with those too. Leslie Halsteft
Dr. Su’s sessions noticeably and immediately alleviated all of my symptoms. Ihave been sleeping better, breathing more easily and enjoying greater peace of mind as a result of my acupuncture treatments. D. Herring
All my expectations have been met – from the entire friendly staff to the incredible expertise of Dr. Mark. I have had great improvement in my cycle and we are continuing to work together to help with fertility, as my husband and I hope to start a family. I always feel better after a treatment and look forward to my visits every week. Jill Douglas
I am more centered. I find a new avenue to channel different thought patterns. I feel more relaxed to express my creativity and art. I was sick with a spleen/stomach condition at Christmas time and was treated properly and with extra special care which I am thoroughly appreciative of. I enjoy each acupuncturist’s gifted style. Keep up the great work! M. Rowlgm
My allergies have gone away completely with doing acupuncture and taking Chinese Herbs. I’m more relaxed on a daily basis. Now doing the treatments once a week and feeling great. It’s really true what they say about the treatments, it’s like a two hour nap. I also had a shoulder injury recently. With Dr. Mark’s expertise in Manual Therapy, he was able to treat my last shoulder injury as well. Not to mention, I never told him about the injury 4 years ago. That, to me alone, is amazing that he would know about it. Thank You so much for helping me. I. Marnito
