Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a natural approach to women’s health, with individualised treatments that address not only the symptoms, but the underlying cause of a disorder.
Acupuncture and TCM may assist in the management of the pain and other symptoms such as stress and fatigue, associated with common gynecological issues.
According to the teachings of Traditional Chinese Medicine, menstrual issues such as pain and emotional lability are not considered ‘normal states’, but rather a reflection of imbalance in the body. By identifying and addressing the underlying root of the disharmony, Acupuncture and TCM may be helpful for assisting with menstrual issues such as pain, irregular or absent periods, and heavy periods.
In much the same way that menstrual issues are not considered normal for a woman whose body is in balance, menopausal syndrome is considered an amplification of a woman’s preexisting disharmonies as she transitions into this phase of her life. Acupuncture and TCM can assist in returning the body to balance, and may be helpful for Menopausal symptoms of stress and fatigue.
