Menstruation, menopause, fertility and more – as women, there are times when we need support in overcoming a hormonal or stress-related issue. We offer a wide range of treatments to help whenever you need us.
Hormone imbalances are not uncommon for women of any age. When we are young, we deal with menstrual cycles that can be painful and PMS that can get in the way of our daily life. Often times, women believe that this is normal for their cycle, however the truth is that PMS symptoms usually hint that there is something unbalanced in the body.
Acupuncture can help regulate and ease periods within three months of treatment. We first take a thorough medical intake to understand exactly the condition of your cycle and overall well-being of your body. Once we understand the root issue, using a regimen of treatments and supplements, we are able to curb discomfort.
Later in life, menopause becomes the next hormonal hurdle women must conquer. The symptoms that distress women can vary greatly from woman to woman. Some women report extreme heat, a reduction in sexual drive, tingling all over the body, moodiness, depression, and mental fog.
Acupuncture and supplements can help this process greatly by filling in the deficiencies the body is experiencing. This is the best and most efficient route to take control of your body again in a holistic and natural way.
Our specialized fertility treatments can help prepare your body for conception. As part of an integrative treatment protocol, acupuncture can help to balance hormones and regulate your period, so that ovulation is more predictable. Treatments are done once weekly during each phase of the cycle – luteal phase, ovulatory phase, follicular phase, and menstrual phase.
In addition to acupuncture, cupping, bodywork and herbal formulas can be used to detoxify and restore balance and harmony in the body.
STRESS AND INFERTILITY
Stress can act as a major causative factor of infertility. The process of trying to conceive itself is stressful. Each month can be a roller coaster ride of emotions, from hopeful for conception to disappointment when period arrives.
Stress can affect the level of many hormones and can cause endocrine disorders. The stress response on the pituitary-adrenal axis affects the levels of gonadotropins, thyroid hormones (TSH, T3, T4), Growth Hormone, and Prolactin. Stress can cause a gonadal dysfunction leading to anovulation, irregular menstruation, and decreased sperm count in men.
ACUPUNCTURE & IVF OR IUI
Acupuncture is an effective complement to assisted reproductive techniques. Acupuncture combined with IUI/IVF can increase conception up to 65%.
The fundamentals of preconception acupuncture focuses on enriching Jing essence, optimizing egg & sperm quality and addressing implantation issues, to help couples achieve their full fertility potential and conceive a healthy baby.
Ideally, acupuncture is done at weekly intervals for 3 cycles to help produce quality eggs and best prepare the body for conception. A second option is to do acupuncture for one cycle, before beginning injections.
A session is done the day prior to retrieval, to help increase blood flow to the uterus, as well as reduce stress. After transfer, you will rest the remainder of that day. Some IVF clinics recommend 48 hours bed rest. Post IVF acupuncture session is done 2 days after transfer.
You thought the hard part was done, but now you realize you had no idea the toll pregnancy had on your mind and body. Of course, this time is beautiful and exciting, but there is still much healing that your body needs in order to be the best mother for your child.
Your body had spent nearly a year preparing for child birth, and now it has almost completely changed. Acupuncture, cupping, massage supplements and cognitive restructuring can help tackle all of your discomfort simultaneously.

One of the best clinics in LA for sure. Had an amazing first experience and am looking forward to going back for more treatments. I’ve never felt more relaxed and my back feels amazing! Thank you guys!
Hana did some cupping for me when my muscles weren't feeling too great. The next day I felt significantly better. She also gives amazing treatments for anxiety. Ive been feeling fantastic. She's super professional and genuinely cares. Looking forward to continuing treatment.
I have had many sessions with both Hana and Jenna and they both are truly an incredible, intuitive, caring, gifted healers. There are actually no words to articulate the powerful relief and release I've experienced during our treatments.
