Here at Attunement Acupuncture, we are passionate about helping women overcome gender-specific health concerns. Our acupuncturist, Danielle, is trained to use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in the treatment of many issues including menopause, PMS, painful periods, irregular menses, ovarian cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, UTI, infertility, anxiety, and depression.
While there are many Western treatments to help women overcome these health challenges, many involve taking drugs, using hormone treatments, or undergoing surgery. Acupuncture and other TCM treatments like herbalism, homeopathy, essential oils, and moxibustion are effective ways to assist existing treatments like IVF or help resolve issues like irregular or painful periods.
TCM works with the body’s natural flow of life force energy or “Qi” to unblock stagnation and promote holistic healing. In fact, acupuncture can address the energy meridian called the Conception Vessel which is found in the area of the mouth to the perineum. Treating this meridian with the appropriate TCM remedies can improve energy level, relieve stress, improve libido, regulate periods and ovulation, and treat digestive disorders. As you can see from this simple example, every aspect of treatment addresses every aspect of your health issue.
If you have never worked with an acupuncturist before, you may be wondering what to expect once you have made an appointment at Attunement Acupuncture. Here is a very rapid breakdown:
First, you will meet with Danielle who will ask you questions about your health and listen to every issue you may have. This is an essential step in your journey to wellness as Danielle’s job here is to allow you to guide her toward the right solution. During this initial discussion and examination, she will also take your pulse and look at your tongue to assist her in getting a full understanding of your Qi.
