Women’s health

PMT and menopausal symptoms tend to be accepted as normal by most women. Acupuncture treatment is effective in relieving pain, discomfort, hot flushes, mood swings, etc. by regulating the menstrual cycle through rebalancing hormonal levels, helping you to feel better on both physical and emotional levels.

A stressful lifestyle, emotional disturbance, poor eating habits and lack of exercise are the main factors which contribute to an inadequate uterine blood flow, leading to gynaecological dysfunction. The acupuncturist can help you to establish a healthy lifestyle and correct the imbalance by working to reduce the underlying symptoms.

Acupuncture can help with:
• Irregular or absent periods
• Heavy or scanty periods
• Painful periods including breast pain and headaches related to the menstrual cycle
• Pre-menstrual tension
• Night sweets and hot flushes
• Endometriosis and PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
• Repetitive miscarriages
