In modern society, women can often experience a lack of support and nourishment and can be overloaded with responsibilities as well as social and financial obstacles.
Complicated with the feature of women physiology, women today suffer from a number of health problems including: severe premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, and gastro-esophagus reflux disease (GERD).
History of abuse of various kinds and difficult relationships are also prevalent. At the Tao Institute we recognize the special challenge to women's health today and our services provide an integrative approach to address these conditions that any single modality likely falls short to help.
Personal referral brought me to Tao Institute. I was in need of treatment of menopausal symptoms - sleeplessness, hot flashes, mood swings, sinus headaches, sinus infections, bronchitis, allergies. I started seeing Dr. Yang 4 weeks ago. I have been receiving talk therapy to get to issues & pinpoint a treatment plan. Now I receive acupuncture & herbal capsules. Now I am off all of my "traditional Medicine" which included 2 allergy pills a day, eye drops for allergies, nasal spray for allergies and HRT for menopause. I am sleeping better, am more content, have more energy; and no sinus problems.
