Women’s health is one of the oldest disciplines of acupuncture
For over a thousand years, women’s health has been its own specialty in Chinese medicine. Sun Simiao wrote the first book on the subject in the 6th Century. Since then, doctors and sages of Chinese medicine have been using acupuncture to treat women’s health as a mainstay of their practice, with specialized clinics being the norm today in China. Dylan and Jinhee have apprenticed with modern day masters of Chinese medicine for women’s health, bringing ancient traditions to life at Dylan Stein Acupuncture.
Acupuncture treats women’s health concerns
From a woman’s first period through menopause, acupuncture can help smooth out the bumps some women encounter along the way. May be it’s painful periods or or endometriosis, infertility or morning sickness, acupuncture has answers. We treat the whole woman, not just the symptoms, so you can be healthier overall while also achieving your specific women’s health goals.
How does acupuncture treat these conditions?
Acupuncture works being restoring harmony and balance to the body, two things so easily lost in a hectic place like New York City. We run from home to work and back again, and sometimes we lose the calm that our body needs to be well. Acupuncture helps you find that calm again. We treat the whole person, not just the symptoms, so we meet you where you are, health-wise, and work with you to find wellness again. We use acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle changes to help you get back on track.
