Women's Health

Every woman’s life is a beautiful complete cycle. It’s a whole, made up of a sequence of intertwining life stages.

Menstrual Cycle

The ancient Chinese text, Huang Di Nei Jing tells us that a woman’s Qi, and specifically her kidney Qi, moves in seven year cycles. At the end of her first seven years, a healthy young girl’s kidney Qi becomes abundant, manifesting itself in the growth of hair and permanent teeth.  At fourteen years old, this Qi or life-force, reaches it’s peak causing the onset of puberty.A woman flourishes throughout her “furtive” years, and then around age thirty-five, her Qi reaches its peak. Learning how to protect this precious Qi is a secret we are happy to share with you.


Pregnancy is a miraculous time in a woman’s life. The ability to conceive a healthy and intelligent baby has been a specialty of Chinese medicine. Knowing how to care for oneself prior to conceiving and after delivery is the key to positive outcomes. More on pregnancy.


The word “menopause” isn’t even in the traditional Chinese medical vocabulary. Actually, TCM calls the various symptoms that some women experience when their cycle ends simply “menstrual cycle ending symptoms.” So you may be surprised to learn that menopause is essentially a Western concept. This stage of life is a natural part of a woman’s life-cycle and is a gateway to an enriching and fulfilling time of her life. You may be surprised to learn that during this transition period a woman has a great opportunity to enhance her health. More on menopause
