ACUPUNCTURE FOR WOMEN
is a clinic of alternative medicine specializing in women’s health care,
reproduction and fertility issues. Primary modes of treatment include
acupuncture and herbal therapy, either individually or in combination.
We focus on establishing personal relationships. We look
at each person who comes into our office as a unique individual, and take the
time to learn about your lifestyle, motivators, temperament and personality and
how these various things affect your health and well-being. We know that
dis-ease can occur when the body is not “at-ease”. The factors that pull the
body out of its normal state of “ease” into “dis-ease” are complex, and are
different for each of us. Restoring the body’s balance is the key to health,
“disease” prevention, and quite often to successful procreation/pregnancy.
In addition, the eastern approach to heath care quite
naturally acknowledges and understands that women’s and men’s bodies are
different. If you and your husband, both suffering from colds, were to go to
the same health care practitioner in China, you would likely be asked a number
of questions and given differing treatments – for the same ailment. Yes,
women’s lib tells us that women are equal to men (some would say, superior),
but the bottom line is … our bodies are different, with different design
functions. You KNOW this.
Don’t you deserve a health care practitioner that has
spent a lifetime studying, researching, and treating women? One who understands
that a woman knows her own body best? Who doesn’t attribute your very real
symptoms to being “in your head” or just that time of the month, as if you’ll
just have to live with it, nothing can be done? MUCH CAN BE DONE.
Acupuncture for Women has proven itself in the community
and with its patients, successfully treating 100 cases of infertility in the
last three years alone. “People quite often come to me as a last resort, after
everything else they’ve tried has failed” says Clinic Director Jane Liu. “They
become believers when they achieve a successful pregnancy, and then they become
more open to acupuncture as a whole-body prevention approach to health and
well-being, not just as a “fix” after a specific problem develops.”
