With symptoms as diverse as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, loss of bone and muscle mass, irritability, insomnia, depression, and fatigue, it may be hard to tell.

Testimonials next prev

  • Dr. Threlkel is an incredibly caring, intelligent, and intuitive doctor. She has helped me tremendously with debilitating chronic hormonal and gastrointestinal issues. I feel like I have gotten my life back! I am grateful to have found her and highly recommend her to others. -- Alexandra M.

  • I was surprised at how soothing the process was. The needles are hair-thin and caused very little discomfort. Lying on the table was a nourishing break, and allowed me time to process grief I had been experiencing. Both the treatment and my discussion with Dr. Safayan afterwards truly helped. I felt invigorated for days! Acupuncture is now a regular part of my care. -- Acupuncture patient
