Women’s Health: Menstruation,Pregnancy, Menopause, and Stress Relief.
A woman’s body goes through many different hormonal cycles in the course of a lifetime. These changes start with menstruation at puberty, followed by pregnancy, and eventually menopause. A woman’s body is in a constant state of change. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine work to restore hormonal and emotional balance and overall vitality to women during any stage of their journey.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help with symptoms such as: delayed puberty due to hormonal problems such as PCOS, Dysmenorrhea (cramps), irritability, emotional instability, breast tenderness, digestive issues (bowel movement changes and cravings associated with menstruation) and headaches. Acupuncture can help regulate the menstrual flow without the aid of birth control pills by helping to achieve the correct rhythm and flow of the period while working on the endocrine system to restore better hormone function to decrease headaches, cramps, digestive upset, clotted or heavy flow and breast tenderness.
Acupuncture can be effective in treating Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, joint pain, back pain and headaches, insomnia, stress and high blood pressure during pregnancy. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be helpful in treatment of post-partum depression.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine can eliminate hot flashes, night sweats and sugar cravings while promoting weight loss and better sleep patterns. It can also relieve pain, emotional stress, and stabilize mood swings. Acupuncture treatments can also minimize osteoporosis and poor mental function by increasing clarity and focus while also treating anxiety and depression often associated with menopause.
We recommend patients come in for acupuncture treatments once or twice a week to help with any of these conditions. To help regulate period cycle and work on fertility, we recommend one treatment a week for three complete period cycles.
