Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat disease and promote wellness.
I specialize in women's reproductive health, which means I treat patients with infertility, irregular menstrual cycles, menstrual pain, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy-related conditions, and other issues of the reproductive system. But did you know that acupuncture can treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions?
Much of my holistic method includes patient awareness and health education. When working with fertility and reproductive health, I use the Fertility Awareness Method to help women understand their cycles, their hormones, when they ovulate, and when they are most fertile.

What does acupuncture treat?
Many people think of pain as the only thing that acupuncture treats, but that's just one piece of the puzzle. Chinese medicine addresses the whole person - mind, body, and spirit - and is capable of treating a wide range of diseases, as well as promoting wellness in order to help the body thrive and prevent illness from occurring.
Because I specialize in women's reproductive health, I use acupuncture most often to balance hormones, regulate the menstrual cycle, increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, and boost fertility. It's especially effective for patients undergoing fertility procedures because acupuncture has been proven to increase IVF success rates.
