MENSTRUAL ISSUES

Acupuncture and herbal medicine can effectively treat:

  • Painful menstruation
  • Menstruation with too little or too much blood volume
  • Early or late periods
  • Irregular periods
  • Amenorrhea
  • PMS
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Endometriosis

Most menstrual issues can be treated by Chinese medicine within three to six months. However, the duration of therapy depends to some extent on the length of time the disease process has been present.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine work to regulate women’s hormones while helping to increase circulation in the lower abdomen. The goal of treatment is to establish a regular menstrual cycle that is painless and accompanied by minimal pre- and post-menstrual signs and symptoms.
