Women's Health NewFrom menarche to menopause, women’s health has been supported by acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for hundreds of years, promoting balance and wellbeing. The beauty of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture is that your diagnosis is made from your symptoms and physical/emotional history, so your treatment is individual. Balance can be restored on an emotional as well as physical level by treating the energetic system within your body.

Menstrual problems such as painful heavy periods, irregular or infrequent periods and PMS can all be alleviated with acupuncture. We also treat women suffering from fertility and associated Gynaecological issues, PCOS, Endometriosis and Menopause.

Fertility is supported and optimised with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine by:

  • Reducing stress
  • Regulating hormones, ovulation and menstrual cycle
  • Enhancing egg quality and endometrial lining to promote implantation
  • Preventing miscarriage and supporting pregnancy.

Women with PCOS have acupuncture to help promote regular ovulation and menstrual cycle. Our treatment of Endometriosis reduces pain and supports a regular cycle by moving Qi, creating a receptive uterus.

Menopause can be a challenging transition in women’s lives. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can support this transition physically and emotionally by helping to reduce night sweats and hot flushes, regulate hormone levels, reduce insomnia, lessen anxiety and low mood and promote a sense of wellbeing.
