What we can help with


Rhoda knows exactly what it’s like to go through menopause. She managed her own using Chinese herbs and acupuncture, minimizing the symptoms, and continues to use this wonderful medicine to promote well being and vigor.  


Rhoda knows what it’s like to want to have a child. From a very young age, she knew she wanted to be a mother.  She was lucky enough to become one, and now has a 24 year old daughter, but she had her difficulties along the way.  Rhoda can help you become a parent also, as she’s done for many others, whether conceiving naturally or using assisted therapies.  Using the best therapies known to enhance fertility, Chinese Medicine has been shown to balance hormones, improve the health of eggs, and significantly increase the success of assisted reproduction.  


In addition to helping many women get pregnant, Rhoda is also known for helping to maintain a healthy pregnancy, and keep Mom healthy, happy, and flowing postpartum. She has helped big and small issues, from preventing miscarriage, to alleviating mild nausea.  In fact, Rhoda and many other acupuncturists have found that regular acupuncture through pregnancy leads to a smoother and easier delivery in most cases. And, if needed, Rhoda is actually well known for her labor inductions!  


Chinese herbology uses combinations of herbs to achieve balance in the

body. Over thousands of years of use, herbs have been classified as to their

precise mechanism of action according to the principles of Traditional

Chinese Medicine. In the past few decades, laboratory research has

supported many of the uses of Chinese herbs and explained them in Western

Medical terms.


Acupuncture is an excellent non-invasive, non-toxic alternative to narcotic pain medications and surgery. Hundreds of controlled scientific studies have proven acupuncture’s effectiveness in relieving all types of chronic pain, 

from occasional headaches to chronic severe fibromyalgia, sciatica, and more. Rhoda has 20 years of experience successfully treating most pain conditions.

Since she has extensive training in a variety of techniques and has tested

them herself, Rhoda customizes treatments to achieve optimum results.


Do you wish you could reduce that line between your eyebrows or beside your mouth?  Would you like a little lift and refreshing of your face and neck without resorting to Botox?  We can help! Rhoda has seen results and has several special trainings in what is also called Facelift Acupuncture.  Let her work with you to bring out your beauty, from the inside, naturally!


Meet Rhoda Climenhaga, L.Ac.
