How Does Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture has been providing relief for women’s health for centuries and offers specific and holistic benefits in many different areas of women’s health and gynecology.

Acupuncture activates the nervous system to help:

  • Sedate and control period and pelvic pain.
  • Thermoregulation.
  • Regulate the menstrual cycle.
  • Regulate hormone imbalances and sensitivities. 
  • Relieve unpleasant symptoms.
  • Encourage your body to self regulate and heal.

What Conditions Can Acupuncture Help with?

Acupuncture is a safe, natural and effective alternative to help support you with menopausal symptoms including:

  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Fluid retention
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Body pain
  • Dryness
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

What evidence is there that acupuncture helps?

Evidence from clinical studies shows acupuncture supports the reduction in pelvic pain, supports stress reduction, promotes hormone balance, and supports emotional stability.

Acupuncture can also support the management of associated symptoms of a women’s cycle including hormonally related migraine, breast pain or fibrocystic breast disease, body pain, hormonal insomnia, and mood regulation.

How long will acupuncture take to help?

The benefits are generally felt over 3 to 6 months of regular treatment.

A course of several sessions is recommended because acupuncture is more effective as an ongoing treatment, with symptom relief building over time.

As treatment progresses and your symptoms lessen, appointments can be stretched further apart.

Chinese Medicine for Women's Health

In Chinese medicine, a women’s health is intricately related to the health of blood flow, gut function, diet, mental-emotional state, and the hormonal system.

Our acupuncturist will assess your individual needs by interpreting your body’s functional nature and assist with recommendations around diet, supplement use, acupuncture treatment and other lifestyle factors to address particular health needs.
