PMS/Menstrual Issues

Treatment of Menstrual Issues With Acupuncture:
Regular acupuncture and Chinese herbs are very effective in treating and preventing PMS and regulating healthy, regular menstrual cycles.   In a recent review of eight scientific studies, acupuncture was able to reduce the symptoms of PMS by 78 percent.
Our natural herbal formula "Women's Harmony" is recommended for 2-3 menstrual cycles to bring hormones back into balance.

How Acupuncture Works For Menstrual Issues:
Acupuncture stimulates areas of electrical sensitivity beneath the surface of the skin, sending impulses to the hypothalamic-pituitary system, which in turn releases endorphins.  By encouraging the release of endorphins a healthy functioning hormonal system is created which is why Acupuncture is so effective for PMS, Fertility, Regular Menstrual Cycles as well as for Stress and Pain.

Irregular Menstruation, Amenorrhea, Irritability & more:
First, we use acupuncture and herbs to balance the hormones, build blood and remove stress, which are usually Liver Qi Stagnation and Liver Blood Deficiency issues in Chinese Medicine.  For example, one of the herbs in a formula for balancing hormones is Bai Shao.  This herb soothes irritability, nourishes the blood and regulates menstrual problems.

After balancing and nourishing.....

Pain, Hormonal Acne, Dysmenorrhea:
We use additional herbs later in the monthly cycle to move the blood, break up stagnation, clear heat and eliminate pain which are Liver/Kidney/Blood issues in Chinese Medicine. Our natural herbal formula "Women's Relief" is recommended for those with pain before or during menstruation.

Chinese Herbs:
Our natural herbal formulas for menstrual issues are plant based and so have few side effects. For menstrual issues we highly recommend "Women's Harmony" and "Women's Relief". 

Treatment Protocol:
The treatment protocol for PMS, Amenorrhea, Dysmenorrhea and other Menstrual issues is 1-2 treatments per week for 4 weeks in conjunction with a Chinese herbal formula.  This is followed by 1 treatment per week for 4-8 weeks depending on the patient's response. Treatment for three menstrual cycles is ideal in order to ensure the body and central nervous system are functioning optimally and hormones are fully balanced.
