Women's Health Q & A

What symptoms show up when a woman’s health is imbalanced?

Your health as a woman largely depends on the role of your hormones, and whether they are balanced and functioning as they should be.

When a woman’s health is imbalanced, it can create several different symptoms, including:

  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Mood problems
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Acne
  • Brain “fog” or memory issues
  • Stomach pain or bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Loss of libido


How can acupuncture treat women’s health issues?

While many Western medicine modalities address symptoms, the goal of Traditional Chinese Medicine is to uncover and address the cause of the problems.  

Acupuncture for women’s health is based on a whole-person approach: Donghwan Lee customizes a plan to treat your specific needs, which may include a series of acupuncture treatments, an herbal medicine protocol, and lifestyle recommendations to support your healing. Hot stones can also be placed on precise acupoints to help blood circulation.  

Whether you want to manage acute symptoms or find relief from a chronic problem, acupuncture can trigger the body’s innate healing response to resolve problems in the reproductive organs and balance female hormones.

As a natural and noninvasive approach, Traditional Chinese Medicine is a good option for women who have been unsuccessful with other methods or who want to explore new paths of healing. TCM can easily complement other modalities or support results you’re getting with current medications or Western medicine protocols.   


What kind of results can I expect?

The benefits of acupuncture for women’s health will vary from one person to the next, but most women find symptom relief as well as long-term balance and health.

In working with Donghwan Lee, many patients experience:

  • Lower levels of stress and anxiety
  • A stronger immune system
  • Improved mood
  • Better quality and duration of sleep
