What to Expect

A woman’s menstrual flow is a sign of good health. When the body is out of balance various symptoms show up such as having no period, excessive bleeding during your period, spotting, pain, or cramping.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help restore better hormone function to achieve the correct rhythm, flow and address the following issues:
- Lower abdomen pain
- Fibroid cysts
As mentioned above, during a woman’s menstrual flow there are a number of symptoms that may arise. These are often categorized as PMS or premenstrual syndrome.
PMS refers to a wide range of physical or emotional symptoms that typically occur about two weeks before a woman starts her menstrual flow or period.
In Chinese Medicine, PMS is commonly attributed to poor blood flow through the liver during menstruation
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can encourage better circulation through the hepatic artery. This is a short blood vessel that supplies 70% of oxygenated blood to the liver.
Many women are being diagnosed with infertility and undertaking procedures such as IUI and IVF without anyone treating the root cause of the issue. The inability to get pregnant can be due to many unexpected reasons including low sperm count or motility issues in men. Treating infertility with Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine has not only been around for centuries but now is validated with results from multiple health research studies.
- Acupuncture and herbal medicine can support conception by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, which dramatically improves a woman’s response to hormonal therapy.
- Acupuncture has been shown to be a hormone regulating therapy.

The journey of pregnancy and birth is an empowering life-changing experience. The woman’s body is capable of nurturing another human being for nine months. In doing so the women’s physical and emotional body goes through various changes.
Acupuncture can support women through this important transition by addressing any physical symptoms or emotional symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, and depression. These are all common postpartum experiences.
Women use a large amount of energy and blood to create and give birth. This is why postpartum acupuncture and herbal medicine aid with the physical recovery process, support milk production and restoring hormones.
Menopause is a natural biological process, not a medical illness. It is the permanent end of menstruation and fertility, defined as occurring 12 months after your last menstrual period. When the body is in balance, women are able to go through this natural biological process without the bothersome symptoms often associated with menopause.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine can bring the body back to balance to address any physical and emotional symptoms of menopause. Such as night sweats, hot flashes, sleep disruption, energy loss, fatigue, and emotional symptoms such as sadness and loss.
