I was in a state of fear and sadness over my diagnosis of PCOS. Rebecca made me feel so much better with her extensive knowledge on the topic. Together, we created a plan that I responded extremely well to. Since then, I have visited Orchid for everything from a sinus infection to the flu to general stress and migraine headaches... ALL of which were helped!

Women's Health

In our fast-paced society, it can be difficult to find health and balance in our lives – to be in harmony with the natural rhythm of our bodies. Our services address the root imbalance of each woman's constitution and restore balance allowing the body to heal from within.

 

 

Women often have health concerns and conditions that are unique to women, and as women and as health practitioners, we understand.  At Orchid Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, we support women to help them stay healthy and strong through every stage of their lives.  We provide support for women’s physical, mental and emotional needs.  Not only do we provide fertility, pregnancy and childbirth support, but we also help women prevent and treat illness, recondition their bodies and minds postpartum, help maintain their optimal strength as they age, and meet menopause and life changes with grace and strength.

 

 

 

Each woman is unique, and we take her individual lifestyle, nutrition, and environment into account when we design a treatment plan just for her.  We want our patients to feel empowered and in control of their healthcare choices.

 

 

 

At every stage of a woman’s life, from puberty through menopause and beyond, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine can contribute to and provide additional support for a woman’s health.   In fact, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine can be especially beneficial to women’s gynecological and genitourinary health.
