A woman’s body goes through many different hormonal cycles in the course of a lifetime. These changes start at puberty with menstruation, then again with pregnancy, and eventually through menopause.  A woman’s body is in a constant state of change.  Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine work to restore hormonal and emotional balance and overall vitality to women during any stage of their journey.

Menstruation and Menopause

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help regulate the menstrual flow achieving the correct rhythm and flow of the period while improving the endocrine system to restore hormone function to alleviate:irritability, emotional instability, cramps, breast tenderness, digestive issues, clotting, headaches, PCOS and lack of ovulation

During menopause, acupuncture and herbal medicine can eliminate: hot flashes, night wweats, sugar cravings while promoting weight loss, improve sleep patterns, relieve pain, reduce emotional stress, stabilize mood swings, anxiety, and depression.


Acupuncture helps the body get ready to be pregnant by helping women relax and de-stress, so their bodies can become pregnant more easily.

The inability to get pregnant can be due to unforeseen reasons, all of which acupuncture and herbal medicine are excellent in treating: fibroids, lack of ovulation, luteal phase deficiency, endometriosis, PCOS, low sperm count or motility issues [in men].

For women trying to get pregnant, acupuncture and herbal medicine promote conception by boosting blood flow to the pelvic organs, normalizing FSH and LH levels, balancing estrogen and progesterone levels, increasing follicle size and improving and strengthening the lining of the uterus; therefore, promoting conception and a healthy, full-term pregnancy.

SJ Advanced Health Solutions recommends patients come in for acupuncture treatments once or twice a week to help with any of these conditions. To help regulate the period cycle and work on fertility, we recommend one treatment a week for three complete period cycles.
