Holistic Gynecology and Alternative Medicine

At the Gynecology Institute of Chicago, we believe in whole body healing.  We believe that Western medicine is not the only route to total health.  Alternative methods such as traditional Chinese medicine, with acupuncture and therapeutic massage, and pelvic floor physical therapy combined with contemporary medical technology can combine to give you the best total result, treating endometriosis, pelvic pain, and hormone imbalance. Your Holistic Gynecologist and therapist will work together to design a program for you.

Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world.  In the past two decades, acupuncture has grown in popularity, and an NIH (National Institutes of Health) study stated that acupuncture is being widely practiced.  People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles are inserted.  Some people are energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed.  Our downtown Chicago Acupuncturist is well versed in all these techniques and can aid in infertiliy, urogynecology, incontinence, and pelvic pain due to fibroids or endometriosis.

Acupuncture from a licensed therapist is proven to be safe, and promising studies have emerged regarding the efficacy of acupuncture.  The National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine recently showed that acupuncture provides relief, and can provide endometriosis treatment, infertility treatment, and hormone imbalance treatment as well.  

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

 

Pelvic floor problems affect bladder, bowel and sexual function and can cause pain. The problems may be weak muscle tone, torn muscles, hypertonicity of muscles causing pelvic pain, trapped nerves, scar tissue affecting organ mobility, and poor coordination of nerves and muscles.

Treatments include:

    Incontinence treatment
    Pelvic pain treatment
    Injection of pelvic floor trigger points to reduce spasticity by the MD
    Soft tissue manipulation to restore organ mobility

    Scar tissue treatment and release
Our referring physical therapists from have advanced training and experience in treating this most intimate part of a woman's body to get the best results.

AcuMassa

The goal of acupressure or other types of Asian bodywork is to restore health and balance to the body's channels of energy and to regulate opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy).  It also works to treat pelvic pain, stress, and hormonal imbalance.
