Breast Health

Women seek Dr. Rozenn’s expertise for many aspects of breast care. She incorporates bothJapanese and Classic Chinese acupuncture styles in her women’s health programs. From lactation problems to fibrocystic breasts, Oriental medicine has been helping women with this component of healthcare for thousands of years. The breast issues Dr. Rozenn treats are varied:

  • Insufficient lactation
  • Painful breasts
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Breast specific hormonal issues (ex.high prolactin or pregnancy)
  • Troublesome breast scars following reconstruction, reduction or enhancement
  • Preventative breast care (ex. post questionable thermogram)

 

Oriental medicine is an ideal system to treat a number of breast problems as it recognizes that in most cases, breast symptoms indicate a larger systemic issue. For example, a primary symptom of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is cyclical breast pain. A cousin of PMS, PMDD is also a hormonally driven pattern with many potential symptoms such as irritability, water weight retention and breast discomfort. Some women struggle with these issues for over half of the month!

Good breast circulation is a marker of breast health. Blood and lymph must move through breast tissue to keep it healthy. Surgical scars can cause pain and inhibit this essential movement of fluids. Japanese acupuncture is particularly useful in reducing pain from fluid stasis and scar tissue that can result from surgery. It can be really quite amazing! Often patients notice a substantial difference after one treatment!

There is so much about your overall wellbeing that you can learn and change through working with your breast health. Whether you want to change scar tissue building up in your breasts, or you have had a thermogram or mammogram that indicates that you have poor circulation, increase or stop your lactation, or shift the hormonal pattern at the root of breast discomfort, Dr. Rozenn can help you achieve your health goals!
