Millions of Americans suffer from pelvic pain and/or pelvic floor dysfunction. And, not only women suffer. Pelvic pain also affects men and children. The causes of this condition are complex. Many systems of the body are involved: musculoskeletal, uro-genital, digestive and psycho-emotional. Often the condition may be caused by infection, childbirth, menopause, trauma or surgery. As a holistic, health practitioner, I have joined forces with other specialists in NYC who are also on the forefront of their fields. Along with this consortium of healers, including gynecologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, naturopaths, psychotherapists, nutritionists, and mind-body practitioners, I offer compassionate and comprehensive care for pelvic pain.
These are some of the conditions where acupuncture can help with treatment:
Pelvic Pain : Pudendal neuralgia, vulvadynia, vulvar vestibulitis, PID, endometriosis, irregular and painful menses
Disorders of the Bladder: Interstitial cystitis (IC), Prostatitis/Prostatodynia, urinary frequency/retention
Disorders of the Bowel: IBS, Chronic gas and bloating, constipation, chronic diarrhea
Sexual pain and dysfunction
