Well Being

Depression and anxiety are often due to the impact of inflammation, nutritional factors, or unrelenting stress.

Acupuncture has been proven to affect the central nervous system, to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system that gets you out of "fight or flight" mode.

It reduces inflammation and cortisol levels.

All of this makes acupuncture incredibly effective at treating anxiety and depression.

While modern medicine often limits women's health management to 

contraceptive pills & pap smears, Chinese medicine has thousands of years' history of balancing cycles, and addressing the complexity that makes up the complete picture of health for women through every stage of life.
