For several millennia, acupuncture has been effectively used as treatment for numerous health conditions that affect women. This ancient Chinese treatment is especially useful in addressing gynecological problems, issues related to fertility and pregnancy, and problems that arise from menopause.
For years, at our Plantation location, we have used sound nutrition, herbal medicine, and acupuncture to help women find healing on a more profound level. Our treatment is designed to ensure that you attain enduring physical healing while being mindful of your emotional and spiritual requirements.
Two of our leading physicians, Dr. Mathew Enright and Dr. Cheryl Yelverton, have been with us for more than 12 years, helping women with various issues find healing. The two have extensive training and experience, having studied and worked with very brilliant practitioners in both eastern and western gynecology. Dr. Yelverton is also a medical doctor that treats her patients holistically, incorporating acupuncture and Chinese herbs into treatment plans for her patients.
If you are looking for a little different approach to your healthcare, you have come to the right place. We take an holistic, whole systems approach to women’s wellness. We do not just look for and treat symptoms. We find the root cause of illness and then treat it with natural medicine.
What makes acupuncture and Chinese medicine so effective is their ability to work at a profoundly deep level of the body. The treatment regulates the hormones and increases the flow of blood and qi. Moreover, acupuncture decreases inflammation, balances the neurotransmitters of the brain and boosts digestion. Other benefits include detoxification and stress reduction.
At the start of the session, our practitioners take a thorough health history of the patient. Next, they use Chinese diagnostic tools including tongue and pulse diagnosis to get more insight into your problem and create the appropriate treatment plan for you. Afterwards, the practitioner uses extremely thin, sterile and disposable acupuncture needles to administer treatment. These needles are inserted into your body for about 20 minutes. The process is virtually painless and deeply relaxing. The doctor will often prescribe some Chinese herbs to make the treatment faster and more effective. While different people experience different results based on certain factors such as condition, the effects of treatment are clearly noticeable on most everyone after a few sessions.
