Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most respected alternative medical treatments in the world. It originated in China over 5,000 years ago and has a proven history of effectiveness. More than eight million Americans have used acupuncture to treat a variety of common health conditions. Acupuncture treatments are holistic and preventive, treating the entire person, not just the part that hurts.
*Hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, and more*
Menopause is a normal physiological change in women that occurs when the production of estrogen diminishes, causing uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, migraines, and weight gain. These symptoms have been treated successfully for thousands of years with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with lifestyle and diet modifications.
**Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, addictions, and more**
Today’s world is spinning so fast and many Americans feel the stress of deadlines, rushes and a hectic lifestyle. Many patients seek acupuncture and Chinese herbs to ease anxiety and alleviate stress related conditions, thus restoring a sense of joy in their lives. Acupuncture has proven effective in not only relieving symptoms, but often in resolving emotional conditions permanently. It can help ease emotional discomfort and the physical symptoms such as insomnia, digestive problems, fatigue, and chronic pain.
*Infertility, PMS, menstrual cramps & irregularities, ovulation disorders, menopause symptoms*
In Chinese medicine, the term irregular menstruation refers to any abnormal change in the menstrual cycle and its accompanying symptoms. In this context, all of the different characteristics of the menstrual cycle are directly related to hormonal imbalances. At Leading Edge we use both Acupuncture & Chinese herbs to provide a natural, safe and effective alternative to treat most irregularities, eliminating the use of birth control pills.
**Inability to sleep through the night, trouble falling asleep, waking up too early**
Insomnia can be seen in a patient who frequently wakes up, wakes up too early, has trouble falling asleep, and experiences an inability to sleep through the night. It can also be accompanied with dizziness, headaches, heart palpitations, poor memory, and mental impairment. According to Chinese medicine, all of the different patterns of sleeplessness are due to a deep, underlying imbalance. We will specifically setup a treatment plan to help restore the body’s innate balance, improving the quality and duration of sleep.
