Acupuncture and Women’s Health
Younger women may have painful periods or other problems associated with menstruation. At any age, you may suffer from PMS, menstrual irregularity or cramping.
From a western point of view, menstrual irregularities originate as functional disturbances of the hypothalamus-pituitary axis (HPA), or the ovaries, tubes, uterus, or cervix.
Eastern Medicine (acupuncture and Chinese Herbs) collects its data a different way, both having the same end effect and devises a treatment plan that will alleviate symptoms and regulate the cycle so it becomes predictable and pain free.
For young woman just beginning to menstruate, acupuncture can help relieve cramps and PMS. The menstrual cycle can be comfortable and regular so that it won’t interfere with normal activities. PMS symptoms usually begin to disappear quickly with treatment.
Chronic menstrual problems respond well to more long term care. Acupuncture combined with herbal medicine restrains heavy bleeding associated with fibroids and endometriosis and relieves pain.
Pregnancy and Infertility
Are you dealing with infertility, morning sickness, back or leg pain during pregnancy, post-partum depression and low energy or Perimenopause and Menopause?
For women who are trying to become pregnant, acupuncture helps solve problems with infertility. After childbirth, acupuncture and herbal medicine are very helpful in restoring and replenishing the new mother’s energy.
For women going through menopause, having hot flashes and night sweats can be greatly reduced to make this time of transition much more comfortable. Treatment focuses on stopping excessive sweating and restoring restfulness.
