Women of all ages can benefit from acupuncture care. In a new century
traveling at warp speed, women's health issues are not solely determined
by gender. Careers, sports, lifestyle choices, injuries, stress
and family responsibilities certainly influence women's health.
Traditional Chinese Medicine can offer some solutions to maintain
good health and a sense of well-being. From the first menstrual
cycle through menopause, gynecological concerns impact a woman's
life. Acupuncture and herbal remedies can regulate a multitude of
conditions, including PMS, (to relieve such symptoms as irritability,
distention, low back pain and insomnia), menopause and migraines,
(to relieve night sweats, mood swings and hot flashes), and the
pain of endometriosis.
Acupuncture can help relieve cramps, bloating, irritability and
PMS. Periods don't have to be uncomfortable. Acupuncture and herbal
remedies can help regulate a woman's cycle and enable her to live
without interference and embarrassment from PMS symptoms.
Unlike the common cold, menopause can last several years! Symptoms
may include, hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings,
insomnia, dryness, and weight change. Often migraines can occur
during menopause. As each patient is unique, the acupuncture physician
will ask a detailed list of questions in order to diagnose and
help solve any problems. Many women wish to explore options other
than hormone replacement therapy. Herbal, or homeopathic, remedies
are most helpful in nourishing the body and mind to not only treat
the causes of migraine headaches but also to relieve the symptoms
experienced during menopause.
Acupuncture and herbal therapy can often relieve or reduce the
pain and heavy bleeding associated with endometriosis.
