Acupuncture & Women’s Health
Chinese medicine can treat a variety of women’s health issues.
Irregular or painful periods, PMS, fibroids, PCOS can all benefit from acupuncture, herbal medicine and chinese dietary therapy. Often, women are prescribed birth control pills at a young age to deal with irregular periods or other menstrual irregularities, without treating the underlying imbalance. After years of artificial hormones, many women find that their periods may take a long time to return to normal, or in some cases may not return at all. Chinese medicine can treat the root cause, and many women are able to have normal cycles without artificial hormones.
Acupuncture can enhance both male and female fertility and has been shown to boost the success rates for in-vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive techniques.
For women going through menopause, the transition can be eased with chinese medicine to reduce hot-flashes, night sweats and other symptoms with natural hormone-free ways to bring the body back into balance.
