Gynecology and women’s health

Menstrual health: 

Absent or irregular menses:

Whether you have just recently developed an irregular or absent period, or you have never been regular, acupuncture with Chinese medicinal herbs is one of the best treatment combinations for regulating the menstruation known to man (or rather, know to woman). Treatment length varies with each individual, however it usually takes between 2-6 months of regular weekly acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to correct most menstrual irregularities.  Once you have had 3 regular periods, your menstrual cycle is usual able to regulate itself.

Menstrual pain:

Free yourself from monthly pain medication and treat your menstrual pain once and for all. Herbal medicine and acupuncture is emphasized in the luteal phase (from ovulation to menstruation) and relief can often be felt in the first cycle. The main difference between Chinese Medicine and regular pain medications (like Motrin or Advil), is that with Chinese Medicine, once the pain is treated, it is often gone for good.

Quick tip: Try to avoid exposure to cold (like swimming in cold water or walking on cold floors barefoot) while on your period, as cold increases cramps.

Ovulation pain:

Know medically as middleshmertz, ovulation pain can range from mild to debilitating.  Like menstrual pain, it can be treated in several months with acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs

PMS:

PMS is an umbrella term for any symptom that comes cyclicly leading up to menstruation. Irritability, acne, bloating, fatigue, breast swelling and discomfort… the list goes on. Like with menstrual pain, treatments are focused on the luteal phase of your cycle and lasting relief is usually achieved in 2-4 months.

Quick tip: 20 minutes of daily moderate exercise leading up to your period can help reduce the severity of mood swings and irritability.
