Acupuncture for Menstrual Problems (PMS)

The term "menstrual problems" encompasses a wide variety of symptoms, all characterized by hormonal imbalance. Menstrual problems can be both physical and psychological, and the severity of symptoms varies from person to person and cycle to cycle. Thankfully, acupuncture can be an excellent treatment for menstrual problems.

Acupuncture for Hormonal Imbalance

When menstruation becomes irregular, lasts too long, or is too short, it can indicate a hormonal imbalance. Similarly, intermenstrual bleeding and severe menstrual pains suggest an imbalance. Because the cycle is well-documented in hormonal problems, these symptoms can be effectively treated with acupuncture. A weekly treatment is recommended, with results evaluated after six to eight weeks. Sometimes, a combination of acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs is used.

How does Acupuncture Treatment for Menstrual Problems Work?

In acupuncture, the body is viewed as a whole, not just focusing on the organs or areas where the symptoms occur. For instance, menstrual problems often relate to the liver. This doesn't imply direct problems with liver function, but the liver is responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle. There could also be energy blockages in other parts of the body that disrupt hormonal balance. Your acupuncturist looks at your overall hormonal balance and energy levels and creates a tailored treatment plan based on this.
