Acupuncture for Fertility & Women’s Health

Do you struggle with PMS? Menstrual cramps? Nausea and vomiting? Do experience chronic low back pain? or anxiety? All of these symptoms that women have learned to tolerate and accept as a monthly routine, are not considered normal or necessary when it comes to acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. These symptoms of disharmony within the body can easily be put back into balance with a combination of acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbal medicine. 

Additionally, acupuncture works for fertility and is a powerful and effective therapy to assist in enabling women to become pregnant. There are many acupuncture points that are used to help a woman generate the proper environment within the womb to promote more fertile eggs and retention of a pregnancy. For example, it is nearly impossible to grow orchids in a snowy environment - this is similar to fertility due to the fact that even a egg requires a particular climate to become viable. North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine can assist in structuring the individualized acupuncture treatment plan that will allow a women to become pregnant and enhance overall fertility.
