Women’s health

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide effective treatment for women’s health issues including:

  • Common gynecological issues such as PCOS, Endometriosis and Fibroids
  • Menstrual pain and difficulties
  • Menopausal Syndrome

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a natural approach to women’s health, with effective, individualised treatments that address not only the symptoms, but the underlying cause of a disorder, for holistic and longer lasting healing.  Acupuncture along with TCM – particularly Chinese Herbs – can often provide an answer for women when Western medicine has little to offer beyond pain management.

Acupuncture and TCM – particularly the use of Chinese Herbs – can very effectively assist in the management of common gynecological issues, including:

  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids

According to the teachings of Traditional Chinese Medicine, menstrual issues such as pain and emotional lability are not considered ‘normal states’, but rather a reflection of imbalance in the body. By identifying and addressing the underlying root of the disharmony, Acupuncture and TCM can address menstrual issues such as:

  • Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
  • Irregular periods
  • Heavy or light periods
  • Absence of periods
  • Pre-menstrual tension (PMT)

In much the same way that menstrual issues are not considered normal for a woman whose body is in balance, menopausal syndrome is considered an amplification of a woman’s preexisting disharmonies as she transitions into this phase of her life.  Acupuncture and TCM can assist in returning the body to balance, and address Menopausal symptoms such as:

  • Hot flushes
  • Headaches
  • Irritability, depression, teariness – emotional instability
  • Heavy bleeding, irregular bleeding or the absence of menses
  • Decreased libido
  • Increased weight gain
  • Palpitations
  • Insomnia
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Anxiety
  • Itchy skin
  • Osteoporosis
