From premenstrual disorder, to pregnancy and childbirth, to menopause: all women are in a constant flux of their hormonal balance. Oftentimes we meet women in our clinic that have had a constellation of symptoms like fatigue, weight gain or loss, changes in appetite, and mood swings, and have visited their doctor to no avail. After lab work comes back “normal”, women suffering with these symptoms begin to think they are crazy or worse—that living this way is normal and inevitable. This is simply not true.
At 9 Crows we provide a holistic approach to women’s health needs, using Chinese medicine. We help to balance hormones and restore natural function of the body by unblocking obstructions in circulation that could be restricting hormones from reaching their target cells and, therefore, being effective. Just because lab results tell you your hormone levels are normal, it doesn’t mean that those hormones are going where they need to go to provide you with optimal function. If there are obstructions in your circulation–from injury, surgery, poor diet, emotions, and stress—then there are obstructions blocking your hormones from reaching their destinations as the body intended. Once these obstructions are removed through our care, the body begins to function optimally again, and the symptoms fade away.
In addition, Acupuncture helps to calm the central nervous system and reduce inflammation. This helps to greatly reduce anxiety and depression symptoms, fatigue, and the overall effects associated with stress. Acupuncture has been proven to lower blood pressure and balance neurotransmitters. Since women are more likely to have a heart attack, it is all the more important to focus on our heart function, blood pressure, and circulation.
At 9 Crows we look at your whole picture, not just your body. Your diet plays a crucial role in your health and vitality, so we can look at that and begin guiding you toward foods that are specific to your needs.
We as women take on a lot of roles and responsibilities. We are the pillars of our community and families, so it is important that we take care of ourselves in order to take care of others.
