Women's Health


Women are born with a very important and sacred gift - to bear children. They go through great stages of change in their lives because of this important role. They must be supported at every step of the way, because an issue with one part of the stage can lead to an issue with all the other stages, just like how a broken tyre causes the whole car to slow down and unable to move.

In general, women may be more susceptible to hormonal imbalance in their system, because a variety of hormones are continually in ebb and flow to allow a cycle to form in the physical body in preparation for conception. However, it can be a good thing in that our menstruation cycle and other hormonal symptoms are a great indicator of the health internally without having to rely on blood tests and imaging.

At Healing Tree, we use acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Eastern lifestyle and dietary advice to support women who need re-balancing to be able to focus on other life goals and reach their full potential in life without dreading another period. 

Common illness patterns which ​may present in women include:

A woman’s health is the barometer of her environment. It is moulded and shaped according to her evoultion in the womb and the social, cultural and ecological environment of her childhood. It is created out of her relationships, her joys and traumas. It is grounded in the quality of her nutrition and the purity of the air and water around her”.
