Hormonal Imbalance
Managing Menstrual Irregularities
Traditional Chinese medicine has been treating menstrual irregularities and gynecological problems for over 2000 years. A combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine are used in order to rebalance the body and regulate the menstrual cycle. Traditional Chinese medicine views individuals as a whole. Not only is the menstrual cycle evaluated but also other health factors such as digestion, sleep patterns and energy levels. As the treatments progress, you will likely find that your overall health will improve.

Acupuncture can help alleviate:
  • PMS

Managing Menopause
Menopausal symptoms can make you feel helpless and concerned. They can interfere with daily activities and often affect your sleep. This can lead to feelings of anxiety, irritability, fatigue and depression. You may have considered hormone replacement therapy to control these symptoms but drugs merely suppress the symptoms and may have unhealthy or unpleasant side effects. Traditional Chinese Medicine is an alternative. Traditional Chinese medicine has been treating the symptoms of menopause for over two thousand years. The undesirable symptoms of menopause are all signals that your body is out of balance. Acupuncture and herbal medicine will bring the body back into balance and relieve the negative symptoms of menopause; Traditional Chinese medicine stimulates the healing process and improves overall health. Acupuncture is endorsed by the World Health Organization as an effective treatment for menopausal symptoms.

My love life was over. Post-menopausal vaginal dryness and loss of elasticity put an end to intimacy as we knew it. With increased discomfort, came loss of libido. Over-the-counter lubricants no longer helped. Hormone replacement therapy was not an option. Western medicine had nothing else to offer me. Like many women over 50, I thought that chapter of my life was over. Knowing that acupuncture has helped so many women with hormone-related fertility issues, I decided to give it a try. A colleague recommended Dr Kang. After just 1 session there was noticeable improvement. After 3 sessions, the difference was remarkable. I continue my acupuncture treatments and feel better after each visit. My partner is happy - because I am happy. My body responds like it did long ago. It's a miracle and I have Dr Kang to thank.
