Gynecological Pain Disorders

Menopause – Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are often extremely effective in the treatment of menopause. Chinese herbs, in particular, are effective in regulating hormone imbalances. Menopausal symptoms are generally due to an imbalance in hormones, specifically, elevated FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and lowered estrogen and progesterone.

PMS – Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs have a lot to offer for women suffering from PMS. Most of the symptoms of PMS are due to stagnation of energy. This results in pain, irritability, bloating, moodiness, food cravings, and breast tenderness. Over a few menstrual periods Acupuncture will regulate the flow of Qi so pain and other symptoms will disappear.

Menstrual Disorders – Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are very helpful in cases of Amenorrhea (absence of periods), Irregular Periods, and Dysmenorrhea (painful periods).  We have also had a very good success rate with cases of Spastic Dysmenorrhea, which is a specific condition where women often have debilitating spasms and pain the first day or two of their menses, which can be accompanied by loss of consciousness or vomiting.
