Acupuncture For Women’s Health

Whole Systems Traditional Chinese Medicine (WS-TCM) enables women to actively care for their health throughout all phases of life. WS-TCM is effective at restoring balance within the body’s systems and directing attention to areas that require circulation. To begin understanding from a western perspective, studies have shown that by acting on the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis—the link between your central nervous system and endocrine system, acupuncture along with Chinese herbs, diet & lifestyle recommendations help to recalibrate hormone levels.

At Garden Acupuncture, we take the time and care to resolve conditions naturally. However, our method for integrating WS-TCM with conventional treatment also allows us to work collaboratively with your primary doctor, GYN, or reproductive endocrinologist.

Acupuncture can be particularly beneficial for women facing issues related to stress, fertility and reproductive health, such as:

  • Menstrual pain

  • Cycle irregularities

  • Endometriosis

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

  • Vulvodynia

  • Pelvic pain

as well as uterine fibroids, cysts, bladder conditions, recovery from C-sections, childbirth and other circumstances. Our licensed practitioners have 50+ years of collective clinical experience, all adept in women’s health. Dr. Jeffrey Winsauer specializes in gynecological medicine, having completed a residency in GYN and infertility at Shenzhen TCM Hospital. There, he assisted in conventional medicine—such as D&Cs, pelvic exams, ultrasounds, and pap smears—and learned TCM under the mentorship of the GYN department head, a 30-year veteran specializing in infertility. A member of the Fertile Soul CEFP Clinical Excellence in Fertility Professionals, Garden Acupuncture co-founder Alex Goldberg studied directly with Dr. Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure.

We understand that many conditions are extremely sensitive and require expert attention. Full-length acupuncture treatments take place in clean, private rooms. We tailor treatment to you and your individual circumstances. During the initial, in-depth consultation, we examine your symptoms, using that information identify your unique TCM patterns that need to be addressed and balanced. In addition to acupuncture, other methods of treatment may be used. Whole Systems Traditional Chinese Medicine goes beyond acupuncture and your practitioner may also provide:

  • Individualized Attention and Instruction

  • Customized Chinese Herbal Formulas

  • Topical Ointments, Lotions, & Washes

  • Nutritional Support, Information, & Counseling

  • Stress/Anxiety Reduction Techniques

  • Lifestyle/Environmental Recommendations

In acupuncture treatments, needles are commonly placed in the hands, feet, limbs, back, and abdomen. Needles are never used directly on reproductive organs. Depending on your condition—alongside factors such as diet, lifestyle, environment, stress, sleep quality, and age—relief may come within several visits, continuing to build over the course of treatment.

“I work a high stress job that requires me to travel often and work late hours, including weekends. This causes severe issues, which I didn't experience 2-3 years ago: daily migraines, insomnia, anxiety, body aches and poor blood circulation. However, over the past year I was hospitalized for endometriosis, so I turned to acupuncture to get me moving around. After seeing the professionals at Garden Acu twice a week, I'm back at work and experience tremendous pain relief, less headaches, and stay asleep!”
