Our remedies are commonly used for pain management and treatment. Chronic pain patients are regularly disappointed by the limited treatments and effectiveness of biomedical interventions. Amid the opioid epidemic, many people are seeking alternative options to pain medications.
We treat pain through a variety of methods. Through the use of acupuncture, electrical impulses, cupping, tui na and gua sha, blood flow increases, tightness dissipates and bodies ability to heal increases. Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system in order to release natural pain killers into the brain.
Reproductive and Gender Health
Chinese medicine supports all stages and changes of the female reproductive cycle. Female reproductive changes mark different hormonal shifts as well as stages of life. PMS and the monthly shifting of hormones can bring about many symptoms such as cramping, breast tenderness, mood swings, digestive concerns and more. Acupuncture and herbal medicine aids fertility, supports a healthy pregnancy and used postpartum for recovery. Menopausal signs such as hot flashes, nighttime sweating, weight changes, mood shifts, and sleep problems are treatable and supported through our remedies as well.
Male experiences including loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, hormonal shifts and more are common and can be seen and treated in numerous patterns of Chinese Medicine. When we have patterns we have solutions.
Those transitioning, those who are gender queer, and those who do not fit into a box have some of the same issues above and some more individualized. We are here to accept, to listen and to help.
Emotional & Mental Health
Stress, anxiety and depression are all too common. Remedy Acupuncture stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system - the rest and digest state to help you release and relax.
Anxiety, depression and other mood or emotional disorders have shown to be effectively treated with Acupuncture and other mind-body interventions.
Chinese Medicine is effective in treating:
Support for major depressive disorders
Shortness of breath
Loss of appetite
Digestive Health & Support
Many digestive concerns are due to our struggles to relax and shift from the sympathetic nervous system's "fight or flight" response to the parasympathetic response of "rest and digest" Acupuncture's ability to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system increases peristalsis (the healthy muscle movements of the intestines).
The health of our digestive system determines the bodies ability to absorb nutrients. Excretions are a representation of the digestive process. The associated signs and symptoms you experience are all meaningful to your acupuncturist.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine therapies help:
Lifestyle Support & Wellbeing
Life is made up of small moments and the way we feel, react and perceive them. The world around us, our communities, and our daily routines influence on us in large and small ways. We likely do not understand or notice the subtle aspects of our life until it affects us negatively.
Seasonal changes, allergens, temperature, eating habits, sleep routines and our sense of connection to community influence our health. Acupuncture can regulate our bodies to better handle the changes within and around us.
Sleep is important for our mental and physical health. Struggles related to sleep are frustrating and lead to fatigue, brain fog and other complications. Acupuncture can be used to increase energy and regulate your ability to sleep through the night and wake up feeling rested.
Addiction and recovery from addictive substances may be the most difficult experience you can have. Addiction creates full body imbalance that affects physical and mental health. Acupuncture works to restore the bodies balance by managing the withdraw symptoms. Studies show that acupuncture can help drug addiction by the release of chemicals such as dopamine. This release cam help the physical and emotional pain of certain addictions and withdrawal. For example, dopamine will naturally decrease pain and create a more pleasurable state of mind.
