Supporting Women at all stages of life.
A Women’s health is complex and affected by hormonal shifts at various stages of life.
We have served women in our Marin Office for many years with a natural and holistic approach that focuses on Well-being and self-care no matter what stage you are at.
Throughout a woman’s life, hormones can create a wide variety of changes – from menstrual cramps and irregularity and PMS symptoms, to Pregnancy and Post Partum to menopause or issues like endometriosis or polycystic ovarian disease. These conditions and imbalances can cause physical pain, emotional stress and general discomfort.
We are passionate about helping you ease the affect hormone fluctuations have on your life.
It is not easy to feel tired, bloated, anxious, and irritable. Some women also suffer from migraines and joint & muscle pain related to cycles and shifts, yet unaware of the impact hormones are having on these conditions. We understand and will look at hormonal patterns and your individual situation through an integrated lens to create a treatment plan that is right for you.
Women’s health issues are unique and varied and respond very well to acupuncture and herbal medicine.
Please feel free to contact us with questions if your concern is not listed.

Perimenopause and Menopause
Menopause is a natural occurrence and an important time for Self Care and helping the nervous system to regulate.
Perimenopause is the menopause transition, and begins several years before menopause. The ovaries gradually begin to make less estrogen. It usually starts in 40s, but some women start to experience symptoms or signs as early as their 30s or even earlier. Perimenopause lasts up until menopause when the ovaries stop releasing eggs.
Acupuncture greatly supports the symptoms women encounter during these times at physical, emotional and mental levels . As hormones fluctuate and less estrogen is available in the body it’s not uncommon for women to experience digestive issues including nausea, acid reflux and bloating, , migraines, fatigue, irritability, insomnia as well as night sweats and hot flashes.
There are a lot of things Women can do to support themselves in pre and post Menopausal transitions. Acupuncture is a gentle, natural, non-evasive and effective way to deal with the symptoms of menopause.
