Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormones are identical in chemical and molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body, and they are usually produced from soy or yam products. In women, perimenopause and menopause are the times when hormones decline the most, and using Bioidentical Hormones to restore hormones to healthy levels can reduce the symptoms of hormone decline without producing unpleasant side effects. Many people have been able to enjoy increased libido, sexual function, muscle tone, energy, strength, endurance, cognition, and motivation after using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to balance their hormones.
The word ‘doula’ is from the ancient Greek and literally means, “a woman who serves”. In present day, this sentiment remains true; a doula is a trained, experienced birth professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and educational support to a mother before, during, and after a birth. Studies show that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter and have fewer complications, and babies are healthier and latch to the breast more easily.
Intravenous (IV) Therapy uses a high dose of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and plant extracts that are infused directly into the veins for enhanced absorption. When we orally ingest supplements, due to the processes that occur in our digestive systems and liver, there is a loss of nutrients. In addition, some individuals have difficulty with absorption in the digestive tract due to disease or merely age. IV Therapy allows for a higher concentration of desired nutrients to be delivered to specific tissues and cells via the bloodstream.
Originating in China about three thousand years ago, acupuncture is an ancient therapy involving inserting very thin single-use sterilized needles into specific points on the body that are determined based on your individual health concerns. The stimulation of these points helps to rebalance the flow of “qi” which, in traditional Chinese medicine, is the driving energy for all bodily functions. In Western medicine we may think of this as analogous to a combination of the immune system, endocrine system, and blood. By rebalancing qi, you can reduce pain and help to regulate organ systems that are not functioning optimally.
Massage therapy is a comprehensive treatment modality that involves hands on techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, connective tissues and fascia. The therapeutic effects of massage therapy can be utilized to optimize health and wellbeing by increasing the function of the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems. Massage therapy can also help to decrease stress and pain, as well as improve mood and wellbeing. Individuals of all ages, activity levels, and lifestyles can greatly benefit from massage therapy. It can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions, throughout and after pregnancy, or just as a tune up to make sure that you are at your best!
