Hormonal Balancing with Acupuncture and Chinese medicine

Going through the changes that come with being a female don’t have to be as challenging as we think. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been successfully treating hormonal imbalances since 476 BCE.

Today, research shows that acupuncture influences the production and circulation of hormones in the body. It also stimulates the production of “feel-good” neurotransmitters like endorphins. Neurotransmitters are closely associated with hormones and thus acupuncture affects our mood as well.

This treatment has been proven to balance hormones, ease hot flashes, mood swings, and soothe menstrual irregularities associated with menopause.

Chinese herbal medicine excels at treating hormonal imbalances and gynecological issues therefore it is a highly recommended adjunct to acupuncture.


“OK it’s Monday the 17th, one week since leaving the Coral Princess. Feel good, no heartburn all week, asthma in good shape too.  Have not used my steroid puffer all week–no pains in lungs–have taken deep breathes just to see if I can mess with this–so far so good.  Have slept like a lamb–no major sweats–or gotten up to go to bathroom. I am taking “digestive health” 2 times a day and also “cool n’ calm” 2 times a day. I had 3 separate treatments under Karly’s care.  If you have not tried acupuncture give it a try, so far I’m impressed. Menopause, insomnia, heartburn have been a pain in the–but this week has been different!”
