Women's Health, Fertility & Prenatal

Acupuncture can provide tremendous benefit for most women’s health issues.  This non-invasive modality can help with fertility, painful or irregular periods, fibroids, ovarian cysts, PMS and hot flashes. Prenatal acupuncture helps relieve morning sickness, fatigue, low back pain, breech positioning, digestive issues and more.  Specific protocols benefit IVF and IUI cycles each step of the way.

Chronic Pain Relief, Injuries & Concussions

Acupuncture, combined with other modalities such as cupping and electric stimulation, relaxes tight muscles, increases blood flow to injured regions, reduces inflammation and releases pain relieving endorphins, oxytocin and serotonin.  It dramatically reduces healing time in acute injuries.  Acupuncture has a particularly high success rate with low back pain.

Anxiety, Depression, Stress & PTSD

Acupuncture is a powerful and non-invasive modality that alleviates anxiety, depression, panic attacks, PTSD and irritability. It helps the body to release serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin and neuropeptides. Acupuncture activates the parasympathetic system and accesses the vagus nerve via specific ear points. These points reduce stress and anxiety while reducing cortisol levels.

 

What Others Are Saying

"Heidi was very knowledgeable, professional, and yet sympathetic to my pain.   After 6 treatments, I went from no mobility and a lot of pain in my shoulders and neck, to being almost pain free with nearly normal rotation of my neck. I am so very pleased at this outcome.”
