Remee Gemo Specializes in Acupuncture for Infertility in Richmond, Va

remee-gemo-specializes-in-acupuncture-for-infertility-in-richmond-va.jpg

Today we sat down with Remee Gemo of Empress Acupuncture in Richmond, Virginia, to ask her some questions about what services she provides and why she specializes in fertility acupuncture.

>What drew you you to working with women’s health?

I love a challenge  and women’s health was a natural fit for my skill set as it is the most complicated arena of Chinese Medicine specialty with a strong basis in science.  I have degrees and training in the Sciences, Biology and Psychology which transfer well into understanding the details of women’s hormonal fluctuations, bloodwork values, physiological processes and emotional needs.  I also saw a need in the area for a women’s healing center that offered acupuncture for women from a woman. 

>What types of issues do you treat?

I treat any type of women’s health disorders including hormone, fertility, menstrual, menopausal and emotional problems.  I do acupuncture for pregnancy maintenance, post partum healing and overall maintaining balanced health.  Additionally, I enjoy the detail work and fine needling skills needed to do Acupuncture Facelifts and treat Bells Palsy.

Acupuncture is not just a therapy it is path to live your best life in happiness, vitality and balance.
— Remee Gemo

>What are your favorite successes?

I love seeing people’s faces change as treatments progress.  I am also trained as a Chinese facial diagnostician and the changes that I see in someone’s face with acupuncture still amaze me. Over time I see their faces have fewer and fewer signs of imbalance in the face, less depression more shine in the eyes and more “Qi” or life force showing that they are becoming balanced and are healing.  Also I love getting Christmas cards every year with pictures of all the "acupuncture-babies" that were helped by acupuncture.

What would your advice be to a prospective patient?

Be open to believing in your body’s powerful healing ability.    The acupuncture enhances, encourages and gives a boost to your body’s natural healing mechanism.  Also take responsibility for the excess stress and bad food choices that may have made it easier for disease to take a hold.  Part of maintaining health is reading your body’s distress signals and taking action to change what causes imbalance and disease.

How Chinese medicine can help fertility in women

How Chinese Medicine Can Help Fertility in Women

Chinese medicine can help fertility in women in a number of ways.  Chinese medicine also known as Oriental Medicine improves fertility using several therapies.  Chinese medicine consists of not just acupuncture but also encompasses Chinese herbal formulations, Tuina, Qigong, and Eastern dietary therapy.

Lets take a look at some of the ways can help fertility:

- Chinese medicine can help fertility in women via acupuncture by manipulating the functions of the body by using acupuncture meridians gently stimulated in areas correlating to hormone balance, reproductive vigor, metabolic functions and organ systems.

- With Chinese herbal formulations you are supplementing the body with beneficial micronutrients and macronutrients that improve the body on a material level in a way that is safe, side effect free and lasting.

- Using Tuina: Tuina is a Chinese style of bodywork that when applied to the abdomen or meridians related to reproduction can improve overall function of the reproductive organs, relax the tubules and ligaments of the lower abdomen and improve blood flow to the uterus and ovaries.

- Chinese medicine can help fertility with Qigong by body movements that generate healing energy (Qi) encouraging the qi to flow freely, improve circulation and decrease stress.

- With Eastern dietary therapy you are building the body with healing foods, eradicating deleterious foods and mitigating health imbalances with food as medicine.

Acupuncture treatments for infertility

ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENTS FOR INFERTILITY

When you come to Empress Acupuncture for an infertility acupuncture session we begin with a detailed history.  We will not only go over your reproductive health but your general health as well.  One of the strengths of Chinese medicine and acupuncture is that it is a holistic medicine that takes into account the how different systems interplay, what other aspects may be influencing your infertility and ways that your body can more efficiently come into a state of wellbeing.  Acupuncture and Oriental medicine seek to address the root of the problem instead of addressing just the symptoms of a deeper imbalance.  In this method of treating the root cause of your infertility you gain greater and more lasting improvement in your health.  

 

Once we have established your Chinese diagnosis via the interview and medical history I do a Chinese facial analysis, look at your tongue and occasionally a Chinese pulse diagnosis.  Most acupuncturists will check tongue and pulse but I find that face reading is so accurate (to the degree that I can tell what quadrant of the uterus an embryo has implanted in) I tend to lean heavily on that diagnostic method.  Being a master face reader sets my practice apart from others in that it is a quick, efficient and exact diagnostic method.  Not all acupuncturists are trained in Chinese Facial Diagnosis as it requires an additional three years of study and apprenticeship to master and having earned the title of Master Chinese Physiognomist (face reader) I have found it an invaluable tool to help others with their healing.  

acupuncture-treatments-for-infertility-blog-richmond-virginia.jpg


The next step in your session is talking about eastern nutritional therapy, and any applicable herbal formulations if desired.  I tend to use food as the first form of medicine and if merited I encourage herbals to expedite improvement.  Eastern food therapy is very different than typical “diet” advice as Chinese therapeutic food therapy depends on the energetic quality of food. For example for certain patients hot flashes can be improved by adding cooling foods like peppermint or cucumber to the diet, this is one way of treating in a Yin /Yang way of balancing, “if it is hot; cool it.”  

 

Afterwards we begin the acupuncture session in a relaxing, dimly lit room.  For more details on the acupuncture session check out this blog.

Detoxification & Acupuncture Program (DAP)

Detoxification & Acupuncture Program (DAP)

Detoxification & Acupuncture Program (DAP)

Detoxification is an important part of maintaining the body.  Our world has progressively become more toxic, more unnatural and full of adaptation challenges for our bodies.  Additionally, food is less nutritious, healthy eating is often a luxury in the fast paced 24/7 plugged in lifestyles of today.  

In Chinese Medicine it is understood that the body will naturally detoxify itself in the Spring from the heavy foods of winter and hibernation sluggishness.  While in the in the fall the body naturally detoxifies to prepare for harsher weather and hold on to calories for warmth. 

The summer and winter are stressful seasons in regards to maintaining temperatures, activity and food sources so these seasons are discouraged as times to detoxify due to the added stress.  The New Year’s resolution of starting a detox to clean up from the heavy, sugary, calorie dense celebratory foods of winter is done in good intent but is actually considered detrimental to the body.  January is the middle of winter and still cold and the body tries to hold on to calories, so depriving it of food and forcing a purge is counterproductive.  

Also note that any type of diet/fast that severely weakens the body such as extreme calorie restriction or dependence on a single food/drink etc is also detrimental to a body.  Such extreme detoxes are useful for profoundly robust young and excess types such as teenage males that are excessively yang but are only harmful to other types that need support to strengthen and not deplete the qi/life force of the body.

This is a protocol that is subtle, effective and natural.  You will not starve or feel weak.  One can employ it in whole or in part as needed during the detoxification times of the year and some parts can be made part of daily life.  

The Acupuncture portion that is designed to accompany this program utilizes acupuncture points that encourage the various detoxification organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs intestines and skin to cleanse and balance themselves by releasing toxins, strengthening organ function and improving blood and lymph flow.

Sign up for Empress Acupuncture's Spring Detoxification and Acupuncture program combining  Eastern dietary therapy for cleansing the internal organs, lifestyle changes to encourage the body to release toxins, and for abdominal acupuncture treatments focusing on enhancing functions of the liver, kidneys, intestines and lungs over 2 week period. Sign up here or click the button below!

Can acupuncture treat fertility?

Can acupuncture treat fertility?

Acupuncture is of great benefit to fertility.  There are many ways in which one can increase their chances of conception by using acupuncture and chinese herbs to address a wide range of fertility problems.  

Fertility Acupuncture can treat fertility problems related to thyroid.  Hypothyroid and hyperthyroid create challenges to fertility that acupuncture can remedy helping balance thyroid function.  

Fertility acupuncture can also improve ovarian function and follicular function by increasing blood flow to the ovaries and lower abdomen ensuring proper nutrients are delivered to the ovaries.  This increased blood flow to the abdomen also benefits fertility in that the endometrium builds up and thickens so that the environment is ripe for implantation.  

Polycystic Ovarian syndrome or PCOS is another fertility problem that is helped immensely by acupuncture.  Fertility can be improved and in some cases restored when women suffering from PCOS utilize acupuncture to manage stress, hormones and metabolism; these are the three aspects of this disorder according to Chinese medicine that block fertility and require balance.  

Other problems that may block fertility successfully treated by acupuncture is luteal phase defect and follicle stimulating hormones FSH balance. Acupuncture harmonizes the hormones to improve your fertility and aids in the proper timing of hormonal cycling.  

Acupuncture treats not only women’s fertility problems, but male factor fertility problems also can be improved with acupuncture.  

In cases where infertility is unexplained, fertility acupuncture works by balancing the body and reproduction with Chinese diagnostics, chinese herbal formulations and acupuncture to boost fertility.  

Fertility enhancement acupuncture is safe, effective and it has been used for thousands of years.

How Acupuncture Increases Chances of Conception

How Acupuncture Increases Chances of Conception

How Acupuncture Increases Chances of Conception

Acupuncture increases chances of conception in many ways. One method is by improving chances of implantation by relaxing the muscles, ligaments and tubules in the reproductive organs. There is an improvement in blood flow in blood flow which in turn thickens and nourishes the uterine lining, balances hormones and the body's hormone response. 

Another way acupuncture improves chances of conception is by reducing stress. Stress has been shown to be a negative influence on fertility by increasing cortisol in the body which throws off your body's hormones, metabolism and sleep cycles. 

Acupuncture is beneficial to the chances of conception because it improves overall well being by increasing the body's efficient use of energy, improves the efficient function of various organ systems, helps boost the immune system and is beneficial to sound sleep.

All these advantages to acupuncture increase your chances of conception so give us a call at 804-501-8060 or use our online scheduling to set up your appointment.

2)   Addressing Symptoms of Pregnancy

Morning sickness/nausea, fatigue, sore breasts, spotting, gas, bloating, insomnia, indigestion, heartburn, swollen ankles/feet, leg cramps, backache, headache, forgetfulness, ligament pain, allergies and appetite are just a few of the symptoms safely addressed with acupuncture.

3)   Balancing Emotions

Mood swings, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, frustration and overwhelm are emotional states that acupuncture can balance in pregnancy.  Often hormonal transitions, fatigue and the fact that you are carrying around another person 24-7 lends to emotional upheaval that with a session of acupuncture provides you a "re-set" to enable you to be happier and more tolerant of stressors.

Women's Acupuncture at Empress Acupuncture in Richmond, VA

 Women's disorders in Chinese Medicine are more complicated than men's disorders so it is important to see a specialist in the field of women's health and fertility.  

Women's disorders in Chinese Medicine are more complicated than men's disorders so it is important to see a specialist in the field of women's health and fertility.  

"Women's disorders are 10 times more difficult to treat than men's disorders."

-Sun Si Miao, 6th Century founder of Chinese Medicine

In Chinese medicine women's health is much more complex than men's health acupuncture.  A specialist in women's health can provide the best experience and guidancee when seeking to address women's issues. Fertility, reproductive health, menopause and pregnancy are some of the main areas that differentiates Chinese health care for men and women.  In women's health, Chinese medicine evaluates a myriad of factors such as timing of menstrual cycles, hormonal ebbs and flows, strengths and weaknesses of various interdependent organ systems, medical history and mental emotional disharmonies. 

At Empress Acupuncture, during a session to address women's health you and Acupuncturist Remee have a conversation about your medical history, what you hope to address with acupuncture, and any questions you have about oriental medicine and acupuncture are answered. Additionally, in diagnosing your case Acupuncturist Remee utiIizes phisiognomy which is an ancient, accurate method of Chinese face reading that is an non-invasive method of evaluating organ function, hormonal balance, uterine function, underlying emotional states and other current illnesses that may affect your health goals.  Remee is the only acupuncturist on the east coast (and one of 20 in the world) having earned the highest designation of Ming Golden Path Master Face Reader thru a 4 year apprenticeship.  She also observes the tongue and occasionaly takes your pulse to decipher the imbalances within one's system to formulate a detailed Chinese diagnosis.  Reviewed are other pertinent details about menstrual cycles, digestion, sleep, lifestyle and diet. Past medical history is also evaluated to determine the length of illness as well as any symptoms that may have been pre-existing or causative to that disorder. Lifestyle stress and mental emotional state are in are also taken into consideration because in Chinese medicine, chronic or extreme emotional states may cause disease.

After your evaluation and Chinese diagnosis is established acupuncture points are chosen and applied.  If desired, a herbal formulation is suggested and an eastern nutritional therapy plan is devised.

Castor Oil Packs for Detoxification and Fertility

Castor Oil Packs for Detoxification and Fertility

How to Make a Castor Oil Pack
Simple procedure for detoxification and cleansing
Castor oil has a long history of traditional medical use dating back to ancient Egypt. Derived from the castor bean (Ricinus communis), the oil can be used to improve the function of internal organs and address musculoskeletal problems.

How it works
A castor oil pack is placed on the skin to increase circulation and to promote elimination and healing of the tissues and organs underneath the skin. It is used to stimulate the liver, improve fertility, mild detoxification, improve intestinal function, relieve pain, increase lymphatic circulation, reduce inflammation, and improve digestion.

How it is made
Castor oil packs are made by soaking a piece of flannel in castor oil and placing it on the skin. The flannel is covered with a sheet of plastic, and then a hot water bottle is placed over the plastic to heat the pack.

A castor oil pack can be placed on the following body regions:
•  The right side of the abdomen to stimulate the liver.
Castor oil packs are often recommended as part of a liver detox program. 
•  Inflamed and swollen joints, bursitis, and muscle strains. 
•  The abdomen to relieve constipation and other digestive disorders. 
•  The lower abdomen in cases of menstrual irregularities and uterine and ovarian cysts. 

Safety precautions
Castor oil should not be taken internally. It should not be applied to broken skin, or used during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or during menstrual flow.

Materials
•    Cotton flannel large enough to cover the affected area
•    Castor oil
•    Plastic wrap cut 1-2" larger than the flannel (can be cut from a plastic bag) 
•    Hot water bottle
•    Container with lid
•    Old clothes and sheets. Castor oil will stain clothing and bedding. 
•    Baking soda

Method
1. Place the flannel in the container. Soak it in castor oil so that it is saturated, but not dripping.
2. Place the pack over the affected body part. 
3. Cover with plastic. 
4. Place the hot water bottle over the pack. Leave it on for 45-60 minutes. Rest while the pack is in place.
5. After removing the pack, cleanse the area with a dilute solution of water and baking soda.
6. Store the pack in the covered container in the refrigerator. Each pack may be reused up to 25-30 times.

Frequency of use
It is generally recommended that a castor oil pack be used for 3 to 7 days in a week to treat a health condition or for detoxification.

ACUPUNCTURE IVF IN RICHMOND VA

Acupuncture and IVF
in Richmond, VA

Over 7 million Americans are unable to conceive or cary a baby to term.  IVF or in vitro fertilization has been used more and more often every year as a method for couples to start or grow their families. According to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology 61,000 babies were conceived via IVF in 2012.  IVF procedures can cost upwards of $13,000 per cycle not to mention mental and emotional energy  and time spent on each cycle.  

Considering how much one invests into IVF many couples seek out complimentary means to improve their chances of conceiving.  Acupuncture has shown to improve fertility rates by improving blood flow to the reproductive organs, especially the uterus aiding in thickening of the uterine lining and health of the uterus.  According to WebMD acupuncture improves hormone levels, reduces stress, stimulates egg production, regulates ovulation, decreases chances of miscarriage and improves sleep.  

Acupuncture is a wholistic and individualized medicine and treatment varies from person to person. At your initial visit a protocol for frequency of visits can be estimated from an evaluation of your medical history, cause of infertility, Chinese diagnosis and facial diagnosis.   A suggested course of treatment for those not ovulating on a regular basis looking to optimize fertility consists of two to three months of weekly acupuncture to prepare for IVF.  An acupuncture treatment before retrieval, then before the IVF procedure and after the IVF procedure is standard.  Some cases may require fewer visits (such as someone who has been having regular acupuncture for health maintenance) also a different frequency of acupuncture treatments may be formed to accommodate financial, travel or time constraints.  Male infertility can also be addressed successfully with acupuncture, based on the etiology of the male fertility problem and the individual's state of health a treatment program can be developed.

In a fertility treatment acupuncture points near the ankles, knees, low abdomen and occasionally forehead or wrists are treated based on symptoms, health, Chinese diagnosis and time of menstrual cycle.  Acupuncture is comfortable and relaxing, Remee is known for her gentle touch and exceptional needling technique.  A Licensed Acupuncturist has thousands of hours of acupuncture training and experience.

Chinese Face Reading for Health and Diagnostics

Comment

Chinese Face Reading for Health and Diagnostics

Chinese face reading or physiognomy can be used for very accurate non-invasive health diagnosis and is especially effective in diagnosing digestive, immune, hormonal disorders and particularly illnesses of unknown etiology.  Remee's mastery of face reading and knowledge of Oriental Medicine has rendered her one of the premier Chinese medical diagnosticians in the US.  Face reading is not practiced by many acupuncturists in the US due to the preference of tongue and pulse diagnosis in most Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine programs, yet it was one of the original tools used by acupuncturists as it is mentioned in the ancient Chinese texts.  

For the diagnosis of health the face is used as a map of the body to determine the state of function in certain organs related to each facial feature.  Wrinkles, spots, redness, pimples, indentations, sagging and skin quality in a specific areas or in combination give information as to the imbalances that lay within the body.  If you have many of the above skin problems check out LIFT Facial Rejuvenation for anti aging.

In cases of an unknown cause of disease or disease of unknown etiology each system of the body is carefully scrutinized in terms of anatomy, physiology, Oriental Medical philosophy, the tongue presentation, medical history and facial features that correspond to Chinese diagnostic patterns.  Once the pattern is determined a treatment protocol can be implemented that provides predictable results in re-balancing the body and addressing the cause of the disease.

Remee Gemo has studied and taught Chinese Facial Reading extensively and was one of the first to earn the highest certification of "Ming" Golden Path face reading with Lillian Bridges a world reknown face reader, author of the definitive text on Face Reading.  Remee teaches face reading at the Lotus Institute in Seattle, WA and the Energy Medicine Center in Richmond, VA.

Due to the holistic nature of Chinese Face Reading there are a myriad of emotional and spiritual applications of face reading.  Call or text to schedule a consult to learn more about how you can benefit from Chinese Face Reading at 804-501-8060 or drop us a inquiry on the contact page.
