Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are used to promote good health, and educate women on what their cycles are telling them. Women are used to experiencing pain as something to be lived with, and the severity of their symptoms can be diminished or negated. These days there is so much more to offer in the way of women’s health & supporting you through your cycle concerns. Understanding your cycle involves familiarising you with why symptoms are present & what can be done about it.

Creating a plan with Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine is increasingly becoming the go-to for many women as they navigate cyclic symptoms, as well as any conditions that contribute to their big symptom picture.

Cycle regulation

For a lot of women, menstrual cycles are rarely regular. In Chinese Medicine, ideally they should come on time, flow for up to 4-5 days both constantly and smoothly, and arrive with relative comfort. For many women, that’s not the case. Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine work to regulate your period & establish regular ovulation in order to get your hormones balancing.

Menstrual Conditions

PMS

Managing premenstrual symptoms involves addressing inflammation & hormone balancing. Acupuncture regulates hormones, and reduces inflammation, helping you to manage your premenstrual symptoms naturally. What you experience each month provides us with a pattern to help you navigate your symptom picture. We work with women who experience symptoms including pain, bloating, mood changes, skin issues, headaches and more. 

Endometriosis

Acupuncture’s role in managing Endometriosis has shown reductions in pain, as well as emotional improvements in coping with symptoms. Using Acupuncture for Endo can be a beneficial addition to your long term management. Endometriosis is the result of endometrial tissue, which is similar to the lining of the womb, growing in other parts of the body. Pain is one of the most common symptoms, and can be so debilitating and severe that it impacts day-to-day life. Endometriosis affects 1 in every 10 women, & can take an average of 7 years to be appropriately diagnosed.

PCOS

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is an endocrine and metabolic syndrome, characterised by hormone imbalance, irregular menstrual cycle, ovarian cysts, insulin resistance, and can also present with abnormal hair growth, metabolic issues leading to weight gain, and acne.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine is a great option to naturally balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles & ovulation.

Amenorrhea

Treating Amenorrhea with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine looks to establish ovulation and a regular cycle. Why is ovulation so important? An absent cycle often suggests a lack of ovulation, and we know ovulation is crucial for hormone health & maintaining a regular cycle. In rare instances, ovulation can occur without getting a menstrual bleed, but the vast majority of the time, getting your body ovulating is key. Follicle health and development is a process of a minimum of a few months, as follicles take time to develop.

Dysmenorrhea (painful period)

Acupuncture has been well researched in its ability to relieve pain and inflammation. Painful periods are experienced differently for every woman, and not something to ignore or compare. Painful periods can range from aches and pains around the time of your cycle, to pain so strong it induces vomiting and migraines. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine look to improve blood-flow to the uterus, address any underlying causes or contributors to your pain, and provide a safe, natural & drug-free relief.
