As women, our bodies are in a constant state of change. Our hormones cycle monthly with menstruation and hormone levels continue to change as we experience pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause.
Fortunately, acupuncture can be beneficial to women of all ages. Acupuncture and dietary therapy can help balance hormone levels to reduce the pain, discomfort and emotional swings that can accompany any of these stages.
