Hormonal imbalances are the most common cause of acne. Stress can make these imbalances more permanent. 
We have excellent results using acupuncture and herbal medicine to permanently reset and balance hormones so that healthy skin is the norm not an exception. It is a slow, gentle approach over several months -natural and effective.




Regular Acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas are an excellent natural alternative to western medications for the treatment of allergies.  A study in the Annals of Internal Medicine showed that Acupuncture reduces allergy symptoms.




Clinical trials and meta analysis show that acupuncture can reduce the severity of arthritis pain as well as the frequency of recurrence, while at the same time improve quality of life factors such as the range of motion of a joint.




Acupuncture and Chinese herbs for lowering cholesterol are an excellent alternative to the western class of drugs called “Statins”.  Acupuncture will help the “qi” or energy of the body to move throughout the body eliminating stagnations. 




There are several pattern pathologies that cause Hemorrhoids in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Intestinal Wind will have bright red blood, little or no pain and no other symptoms. Dryness of the Intestine usually occurs with chronic constipation. Damp Heat will have inflammation, swelling, pain with a red tongue, greasy coat and rapid, slippery pulse.  Spleen deficiency allows Qi (energy) to sink resulting in protruding hemorrhoids and possibly even anal prolapse with feelings of fatigue and bloating after meals.




Acupuncture and Chinese herbs balance the endocrine system and relieve stress, thus improving fertility for both men and women.  Research out of Tel Aviv University, published in the Journal of Integrative Medicine shows that when Acupuncture is used with western treatments, fertility rates are 26% higher than without Acupuncture.  Doctors are now encouraging women to get acupuncture on the same day as in vitro fertilization (IVF).




Research finds that acupuncture has a high success rate for treating insomnia.  It improves sleep duration as well as quality.  Acupuncture increases melatonin secretion and reduces anxiety.



Menopause Hot Flashes

Acupuncture with herbal medicine is very effective in decreasing hot flashes.
Many studies, including a recent one in Michigan by Henry Ford Hospital have found that Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are effective and safe for treatment of menopausal symptoms.  They can be used together with western medicine or as an alternative therapy. 




Acupuncture is well known for treating pain.  The National Institutes of Health recognized acupuncture as an effective treatment for pain in 1997.  Types of pain treated include headaches, neck pain, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic pain, menstrual cramps, surgical pain and arthritis.



PMS & Menstrual Issues

Regular acupuncture and Chinese herbs are very effective in treating and preventing PMS and regulating healthy, regular menstrual cycles.   In a recent review of eight scientific studies, acupuncture was able to reduce the symptoms of PMS by 78 percent.

We use herbal formulas like Women's Harmony that will fully balance hormones gently over 2-3 months for long lasting results. Patients in our clinic who use Women's Harmony find the level of pms cramps and pain decrease by about 40% each month and pain levels decrease from as high as a 9/10 down to a 1/10 or 2/10. Their period also becomes regular. This means that hormonal balance has been achieved and at that point we slowly decrease herbal dose size until they are off of the herbs.




A fascinating study published in Anesthesiology (June 2003) showed a 66% decrease in stress for the acupuncture group of patients being transported to the hospital by ambulance.  By contrast, the control group had a 10% increase in stress.  The effectiveness of acupuncture on stress and anxiety is remarkable.



Surgery & Injury Recovery

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are super effective in speeding recovery. Many sports teams including SF 49ers, NY Knicks and Olympic athletes now enlist Acupuncturists to decrease recovery time from injuries and surgery. Acupuncture decreases inflammation and increases circulation. There are many natural Chinese herbs with no side effects that do the same plus they generate tissue, flesh and bind blood vessels greatly speeding recovery.
