Our goal is to educate, empower, and provide support for women of all ages. 

SHC's comprehensive wellness initiative seeks to provide patients with a variety of choices during every stage of their menstrual cycles.   Our patient centered approach ensures that you are well informed and able to make the best decisions for what your body needs to stay healthy. 

Integrative medicine refocuses medicine on health and healing. It insists on patients being treated as whole persons—minds and spirits, as well as physical bodies— who participate actively in their own healthcare.

PMS, irregular menstrual periods, missed periods, and heavy flows are all reason to be aware of what your body may be telling you.  Diagnoses such uterine fibroids, endometriosis, or ovarian cysts can be managed with a combination of traditional and conventional medicines. Nutrition, acupuncture, energy work, massage, herbs and lifestyle changes assist with managing the side effects and underlying issues that are associated with painful or irregular menstruation.

Our packages were developed to treat the whole person and are supportive therapies that address the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual center, thus, creating the best conditions possible for living through any difficulties related to menstruation.  Services help patients optimize their health, improve their coping skills, and decrease stress.

Menstrual Cramps

Cramps usually begin one to two years after a woman starts getting her period. Common menstrual cramps often start shortly before or at the onset of the period and continue one to three days. They usually become less painful as a woman ages and may stop entirely after the woman has her first baby. During this time, there are a wide variety of natural methods to cope with the emotional and physical side effects.

Some cramps are more severe and are caused by a disorder in the woman's reproductive organs. These cramps usually begin earlier in the menstrual cycle and last longer than common menstrual cramps.  Underlying conditions can contribute to the pain that is associated with these cramps.  

Regular exercise, yoga, a proper diet, evaluation of nutrient deficiencies, and herbal remedies are all natural remedies that have a direct and positive effect on relieving the symptoms and curing the causes without any adverse side effects. 

 

Even if you are not currently having any of the issues noted above, you can still visit SHC for your annual well woman exam, common gynecological problems, weight management, urinary incontinence--or any other women’s health issue you are facing. We are here to really listen to you.
