Acupuncture Benefits for Women

Women experience several essential transitions throughout their lives. With each stage—from the onset of adolescence to adulthood, prospective motherhood, menopause, and post-menopause—comes a variety of new experiences and challenges. However, with each of these life transitions, hormones fluctuate—sometimes drastically—leading to a variety of potentially negative health conditions and symptoms.

Acupuncture is particularly suited to treating women’s health issues, because it works by gently adjusting and balancing the body—including the hormonal patterns and shifts. This can relieve a variety of symptoms and health concerns that a woman may experience in her lifetime, including but not limited to:

• Night sweats
• Mood swings
• Breast tenderness
• Cramps
• Abdominal pain
• Memory issues
• Fatigue
• Post-partum depression
• Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
• Low libido
• Stress
• Vaginal dryness
• Yeast infections
• Anxiety
• Infertility
• PMS symptoms
• Menopause symptoms
• Morning sickness
• Weight management
• Heavy or painful periods
• Irregular cycles
• Migraines
• Facial rejuvenation
• Insomnia
• Acne
• Water retention
• Depression
• Hot flashes

Acupuncture Benefits for Men

Acupuncture can provide concrete benefits for men of all ages, including relief from pain and an increase in day-to-day energy. However, while men experience stress from many directions, including work and family responsibilities, they are statistically less likely than women to seek medical attention for serious health conditions, and often don’t see the repercussions until it’s too late. For these reasons, men need to pay attention to their bodies before any pain or disease is debilitating.

Acupuncture and herbal therapy can address many issues that are relevant to men:
• Musculoskeletal pain—including back, shoulder, and knee pain
• Weight loss
• Hair loss
• Cardiovascular health
• Sexual function
• Prostate health
• Fertility
• Fatigue and low energy
• Low testosterone
• Poor sleep and insomnia
• Sports injuries
• Muscle tone
