"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.
