Hormone Balancing 

Jennifer Monin - Hormone Balancing with Acupuncture - Sebastopol

Acupuncture and herbs can support a woman along her journey of life's transitions from the advent of menses (menarche), pregnancy, lactation,  peri-menopause and finally menopause.  Women's mysteries are the great events of a woman's life.  Each new phase is a doorway into something bigger.  

My goal is to support women through times of tremendous emotional, physical, social and spiritual change.  For some women, these are smooth transitions.  For others,  these rocky times are often accompanied by a range of unpleasant symptoms.

Regular acupuncture treatments and lifestyle changes have radical health promoting effects in terms of preventive care and can normalize the menstrual cycle, ease menopausal symptoms, regulate thyroid and improve adrenal function.

After getting off of birth control, I struggled with irregular menstrual cycles and was diagnosed with PCOS. Over the past three months, Jennifer has helped me regulate my cycles using acupuncture and herbs. I’ve also experienced an increase in energy, improvement in digestion, and recovery from emotional fatigue and stress. It has been wonderful to have Jennifer’s guidance while making sense of my PCOS symptoms and looking ahead towards pregnancy in the future.
