Women’s Health

How Acupuncture works:

At The Holistic Clinic, we treat a plethora of illnesses, but we have a few unique specialties.  One of these is Women’s Health and Fertility using Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.  Women are very unique in their biochemical make-up because there are so many hormonal processes occurring on a monthly basis.  Women are also much more sensitive and intuitive.  Due to this level of sensitivity, and lacking the robust structural and physical appearance of men, women can be susceptible to rapid blood sugar and hormonal changes.  These changes can then affect the mood, the menstrual cycle, the ability to be fertile, the nervous system, weight management, digestion, etc. Our Franklin Acupuncturist Amy Suplee has years of experience with women’s health and fertility.

Acupuncture for Fertility

Fertility Acupuncture is one of our specialties within women’s health.  Our Acupuncturist in Franklin has helped hundreds of women to get pregnant, using safe and natural methods, with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs.  Some women have even had twins.  A healthy body is a fertile body and our Acupuncturist with 10 years of experience, has helped couples to achieve their dreams, of having a family when there seemed to be little hope.  Acupuncture is a vital part of getting the body back in balance and allowing the Qi or energy to flow properly so the uterus is prepared for implantation once conception takes place.  Our Acupuncture clinic helps women in the entire Nashville area and can meet you where you are at, during whatever stage of women’s health you need.

 

How do I Know If Acupuncture is Right for Me?

  • Are you Having Problems Conceiving?

Acupuncture for Menopause

 

Menopause is an important time for women, as a woman’s body transitions from its fertile days to a time to enjoy life and be free!  During this transition, it can definitely take its toll on the body with hormonal imbalances, hot flashes, night sweats, decreased libido, and mood imbalance.

We at The Holistic Clinic, want you to be able to enjoy this transition with minimal symptoms.  Acupuncture has proven to be an effective treatment for lessening or eliminating these symptoms.  With the combination of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs and proper Nutrition, some women breeze right into these wonderful years.  This allows women to stay happy and healthy in the body while maintaining balanced family relationships.

 

Do I Need Acupuncture for Menopause?

  • Are you Having Hot Flashes and Night Sweats?
  • Are you Irritable, Depressed or Moody?
  • Do you Have Low Libido?
  • Do you Have Vaginal Dryness?
  • Do You Feel Hormonally Imbalanced?

Acupuncture for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) & Endometriosis

 As women, it is important to understand that health starts at an early age.  Therefore, at The Holistic Clinic we recommend you educate your daughters during their teenage years when they begin their menstrual cycle.  Many young women are put on birth control pills and kept on them for many years for such issues as menstrual cramps, pain, endometriosis, vomiting and headaches.  This approach should be used with more caution.  Not only do these hormones have detrimental and dangerous effects on the woman’s reproductive system, but over time it can cause the menstrual cycle to stop, thus decreasing or eliminating a woman’s ability to conceive a child, interfering with later life plans.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are very effective for regulating the menstrual cycle and rather than use birth control pills which have proven to increase the risk of breast and cervical cancer, we can talk to your teenager about other birth control options.  Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs in combination are also a great way to reduce teenage acne.
