• Women’s Health

  • Women face a wide variety of health concerns as they age, from menstruation to fertility and childbirth to menopause and beyond. Unfortunately, many women suffer physical and emotional challenges at some point in their lives.

    • Symptoms of PMS  including cramping, bloating, fatigue, and mood swings
    • Pain and menstrual issues resulting from fibroids or endometriosis
    • Physical and emotional toll of pregnancy and childbirth including anxiety, stress, fatigue, morning sickness, back pain, sciatica, labor pain and post labor recovery
    • Stress due to fertility issues affecting the body, mind, and spirit
    • Changes during menopause leading to hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings and memory problems, vaginal dryness and changes in libido

    Acupuncture is an effective, natural way to address these concerns without the side effects of medications or surgery. According Asian medicine theory, symptoms such as those listed above occur when there is an imbalance or obstruction affecting the free flow of qi (pronounced ‘chee’). Qi is the vital energy that nourishes the cells and tissues of the body. When qi does not flow smoothly, pain, weakness, and illness can result.

    Julie will work with you to find the underlying imbalance and obstructions and create a treatment plan specific to your needs. By inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points in the body, she will seek to restore balance and enable the natural movement of qi through the body.

    Julie may also suggest other lifestyle adjustments to enhance treatment and speed healing. This may include diet, exercise, meditation and breathing practices.
