"I was having extreme PMS symptoms and irregular cycles for years, and numerous doctors were not able to really help with either problem. I was told to start taking birth control again to manage the symptoms, but that was the last thing I wanted to do. Luckily I saw an ad online for Rebecca and even though I was a tad skeptical, I decided to go in for a consultation. I am very glad I did! With only a few sessions, my periods became more regular and lighter. I also stopped having insomnia while PMSing, which was HUGE for me. The most amazing outcome, though, was going from multiple panic attacks a day to 0-1 during my enter PMS time! I felt so discouraged and hopeless that I would never be able to get over these symptoms without medication, but I was wrong. Rebecca used a combination of acupuncture, diet and Chinese herbal medicine to help me achieve these awesome results. 

Rebecca is knowledgeable, caring, easy to talk to,  and she really wants the best for her patients. I looked forward to going to my weekly sessions and felt comfortable every time, and I definitely recommend seeing her."

 How it works..

During your initial consult we go over your health history, diet, supplements and provide a treatment plan. Your first acupuncture treatment is also included, and herbal medicine may be prescribed at an additional cost

 

A minimum of weekly acupuncture encourages and reinforces your bodies healing capabilities, and powerfully sooth emotions.

 

Depending on the severity and duration of PMDD in your life, treatment length can be anywhere from 4 weeks to 16 weeks. 

 

You will leave treatment with the knowledge of how to take care of your health through lifesyle and dietary maintenance making PMDD non existent    

Common Questions

 

Does the acupuncture hurt?

The needles are extremely thin, and they cause no pain because they are administered by Licensed AcupuncturistsWe do not rush our patients and take the time to be sure they are comfortable. 

 

Will I have to remain in treatment long term?

The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way. We do remain dedicated to all of your health concerns, many of our patients continue to come in for sporadic maintenance or continue weekly because they love the way they feel using this medicine. 

 

Will I have to do a restrictive detox or elimination diet?

 No, it is very rare that something like this would be necessary.  We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your diet and work on those.

 

How long does it take to see results?

People often feel a shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerfully relaxing substance the body makes

 

Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?

Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits.

Can natural medicine REALLY help me with my PMDD?

Absolutely. Your hormonal system – and your body as a whole – is capable of healing itself, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track.

What are my chances of success?

This depends on your mindset, if you believe your body can heal the results you want will happen. That being said, over 70% of our patients report improvement in frequency and severity of their condition and many are able to reduce their medication use. However, your situation is unique and once we complete an initial consultation we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
