Reproductive Health

Every stage of a life is filled with hormonal changes, from reproductive hormones to non-reproductive hormones they all affect how your body functions. At Island Acupuncture, we blend western medical understanding of hormones and the body with Chinese medicine concepts, yielding a truly holistic treatment of your whole being. Reproductive health is for anyone with a reproductive system, working with patients at the onset of puberty, whether natal or medication induced, through pre-conception, through pregnancy and on through meno/andropause. All of us should be able to enjoy a pain free, energetic life. Hormonal changes during transitional phases in our lives can bring about a variety of symptoms that integrative care may help with.

A life of stress and overwork can deplete your body, causing dysregulation. This may come with symptoms such as pain, fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, and more.  Acupuncture works to restore hormonal balance, regulate blood flow and stimulate your body to regulate itself. We use the additional tools Chinese medicine has to offer: herbs, diet and lifestyle recommendations. To round out the integrative care, we may use supplements and even referral to gather a team of care to help you reach a deeper level of healing.
