Hormonal Imbalances

Through each stage of a woman’s life there is the ebb and flow of change. Change that occurs hormonally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Just as nature has it’s own subtle change as the seasons go from one to the next, so do we, since we are nature.


Women change from child into their menarche, some to pregnancy and birth and then eventually to menopause. Chinese medicine has been treating each phase of a woman’s life with precise understanding of all of the detailed imbalances that can occur. Because of this, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are especially effective at treating hormonal imbalances of any kind.
