Acupuncture for Gynaecological issues
Women shouldn't be suffering every month!
Periods can be the bane of many women's lives; our menstrual cycles can be linked with mood swings, pain, anxiety, exhaustion, nausea, dizziness, excessive bleeding, acne, migraines, bloating and varied other symptoms. Women often resort to artificial chemical solutions with side effects, such as the contraceptive pill, painkillers or other medications. This is seen as "normal" by many- but in Chinese Medicine this is not normal- these symptoms, along with irregular or absent cycles, difficulty conceiving, and other concerns, are a sign of an imbalance in the system and acupuncture can be a huge help. I love treating gynaecological issues, because I have seen how women's lives can immeasurably improved, often very quickly. There are many studies about Dysmennorhea and Acupuncture - here is one link to a study regarding dose and outcomes
Sometimes women want to try to conceive but are afraid to come off the pill as it has been disguising her symptoms, and we can help this transition too and encourage a healthy regular cycle to prepare for conception and pregnancy.
