We live in a stressful world, and navigating the demands of work and family life can make it all the more so. It’s fair to say that most of us have some degree of stress that we deal with on a daily basis. In fact, around 86% of working women in the US report having physical or mental symptoms associated with stress.

For some, the effects of stress take a bigger toll than others. Anxiety, depression, mental fatigue and insomnia are increasingly prevalent and can have a big impact on your overall well-being.

But stress isn’t the only culprit. Mood changes and sleep disturbances can also occur as a result of fluctuating hormones, such as in premenstrual tension, pregnancy or postpartum, and perimenopause. These hormonal changes are common causes of mood and sleep disruptions and are easily treated.

 Symptoms Include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression, Weepiness
  • Difficulty Falling or Staying Asleep
  • Easily Overwhelmed
  • Fatigue (Physical & Mental)
  • Irritability
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Low Libido
  • Muscle Tension, Joint Pain, TMJ
  • Palpitations
  • Poor Memory, Cloudy Thinking, Difficulty Concentrating
Fortunately, there is help. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are highly effective at treating mental-emotional conditions and improving sleep without the unwanted side effects of common prescription drugs. It does this by:
  • Down-regulating the central nervous system
  • Reducing cortisol levels
  • Enhancing serotonin uptake
  • Improving adrenal gland function
  • Improving the body’s stress response
  • Promoting restful sleep
For best results, we recommend weekly treatment for up to 6 weeks. This creates a cumulative effect that results in a stronger nervous system.


I’ve been a client here for the past few months as I undergo fertility treatments at the recommendation of my doctor. I’ve seen both Rachel and Maren, both of them are fantastic. I appreciate that they keep track of how things are going and talk through how I’m feeling to help tailor my treatment. I was apprehensive having never done acupuncture before. It was a bit weird at first, but Rachel explained everything very carefully to me. I highly recommend them!
I saw Kandace to help with fertility, hormone balance and uterine lining while undergoing IVF treatment. The process is so clinical, that seeing Kandace in her inviting office was a such a welcome break. She took the time to really get to know me in depth as a whole person and every session was able to emotionally meet me where I was that day. Some days I arrived in tears after failed cycles, and sometimes elated with good news. She always seemed to know just what I needed that day to walk out of her office feeling better. Thanks to her help with acupuncture, supplementation and general advise on fertility and wellbeing, I had a successful IVF cycle and am now pregnant with twins. I cant thank her enough for her help and would highly recommend her to others!
I’ve been seeing Julie Johnson for several months, and wholeheartedly recommend her! I appreciate that she has a deep understanding of western medicine, and can use that information to inform her acupuncture treatments. The treatment I’ve received has been excellent, and leave me feeling calmer, healthier, and less anxious. I highly recommend Well Woman Acupuncture!
I’ve been having acupuncture from Kandace for several months for massive inflammations in my body and depression. The results are absolutely amazing. With hard work on both our parts I am doing incredibly well. I now have the flexibility to move without continuous pain. I came there in tears on my first visit and now each time I leave with a big smile on my face! I will always trust Kandace and her loving, caring skills to see me thru difficult times. I look forward to seeing her each visit because I know I will leave there feeling better than I did when I came in. If I could give her 10 stars I would! ❤️
I have been seeing Julie since July and cannot express how happy I am working with her! She has helped immensely with menopause symptoms. She always asks lots of questions about how I am feeling and adjusts my treatments & herbs accordingly. She has brought me great relief! I highly recommend!
