HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
On top of pressures and stressors of everyday life, along with poor diet and lifestyle choices, women in all stages of life are often faced with the physical, mental and emotional effects of hormonal imbalance. Statistics show that 80% of women suffer from hormonal imbalance. Many women live with these imbalances without even realizing it and are unaware that hormonal irregularities can be addressed and treated. Not only can women suffer in the early years, but as we age, we experience a physiologic decline in hormones and women experience not only irritating symptoms but it raises the risk for certain health problems.

Love Emily!! I was extremely tired and blood work showed my B-12 levels at 238. The woman I go to for my facials recommended I see Emily. I have been seeing her every two weeks since December and feel SO much better. She takes time to discuss your issues and consults with you a plan of action. She is so bubbly and fun to be around - I dare say we have become friends - she cares about each of her clients. I have recommended her to others!!!
I have gotten 3 IV drips so far from them, every time I left energized and for the past year I never got sick. It's worth every penny now that we are dealing w/ a pandemic. The staff is professional, knowledgeable and place is clean and beautiful.
