Hormones | Menstrual Health & Menopause

Hormonal imbalances can occur at any age. Hormones and glands work together to form the endocrine system.

A properly functioning endocrine system supports the overall health of your body.

When hormones are out of balance, you may experience problems such as: 

Menstrual Issues

  • Pain & intense cramping

  • Headaches

  • Bloating

  • Heavy Bleeding/Clotting

  • Irregular periods/absent periods

  • Mood swings

  • Endometriosis/PCOS


Acupuncture and herbal medicine may help to regulate your hormones, your cycle, lessen pain and improve blood flow. Acupuncture causes the brain to stimulate your body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals – lessening your pain and improving blood circulation to reduce swelling.


Menopause can cause many lingering, unpleasant symptoms that

can greatly affect your quality of life including:

  • Hot flashes

  • Night sweats

  • Insomnia

  • Anxiety/Depression

  • Heart Palpitations 

  • Mood swings

  • Lack of libido

  • Fatigue


Acupuncture may regulate your hormones, reduce the frequency

and severity of hot flashes, sweats, assist with anxiety, sleep and restore your

body’s natural circadian rhythms.

Acupuncture may be an effective alternative for those who do not wish to use

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) due to the unpleasant side

effects and risks.
