How Does Acupuncture Help?

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

It’s also been found to assist in reducing pain in patients with endometriosis and period pain.

Acupuncture supports to:

  • Sedate and control period and pelvic pain (with or without an endometriosis diagnosis).
  • Regulate the menstrual cycle ( often associated to PCOS or anovulatory cycles).
  • Regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian (HPO) axis in cases of secondary amenorrhea (no period for more than three months).
  • Mitigate PMS and PMDD symptoms due to stress, hormone imbalances, and hormonal sensitivities.
  • Provides an understanding of women’s health symptoms as messages of the body and what is required for overall wellbeing

What Conditions Can Acupuncture Help with?

Some conditions we work with in the clinic include:

  • PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
  • Infertility and subfertility
  • Adenomyosis and endometriosis
  • Pelvic pain, Period pain, and dysmenorrhea
  • Peri-menopause and menopause symptoms
  • Mid-cycle bleeding or spotting
  • Menstrual-related body pain
  • Estrogen dominance
  • Progesterone deficiency
  • Irregular cycles
  • Amennhorrea
  • Support of women stopping the pill
  • PMS (premenstrual syndrome) and mood symptoms
  • Natural fertility
  • IVF support

  • Pregnancy-related issues

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?

Acupuncture is cumulative, treatment and outcomes build over time.

When changes to lifestyle are made and treatments are taken regularly, the benefits of acupuncture are generally found over three to six months.

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 endocrine (hormonal) system.

Special attention is paid to the health and functionality of the uterus and ovaries.

A Chinese medicine acupuncturist will assess the woman’s individual needs by interpreting her body’s functional nature and assist with recommendations around diet, supplement use, acupuncture treatment, and other lifestyle factors to address particular health needs.
