Don’t be at the mercy of your hormonal changes!

There is no getting away from it women’s lives can be greatly influenced by the fluctuations and changes in their hormone levels. Right from puberty and the onset of the menstrual cycle, through to the postmenopausal years, where the lack of hormones can produce their own set of difficulties!

Often women assume that PMT symptoms, painful menstrual cycles , hot flushes or anxiety are the products of hormonal changes and that little can be done about them, however Chinese medicine theory considers that these symptoms arise as a result of energy imbalances or blockages in the body. The energy blockages and therefore the symptoms can be resolved with effective acupuncture treatment.

Treatment is always aimed at relieving the physical symptoms of pain or hot sweats as well as the mental and emotional symptoms such as tiredness and anxiety.

Women’s health FAQ’s

Will it help my hot flushes?

Can it help with PMT symptoms?

From irritability and tiredness to pain, there are acupuncture points for just about every PMT symptom you can think of!

I have migraines during my period

Headaches or migraines can be experienced at anytime in your monthly cycle. Appointments are scheduled at the best time of the month to avoid the build up of ‘Qi’ which can be the cause of many symptoms.
