Acupuncture for Women's Health
For over two thousand years Chinese medicine has been treating Gynaecology and Women's Issues. Symptoms like stress and PMT, irregular periods, cramping, clotting, heavy or scanty flow indicate imbalances or deficiencies that need to be corrected in order for you to achieve optimal health.

Classic Acupuncture respects the complexity of the female body and the menstrual cycle. Its strength lies in its finesse in treating several symptoms at once.
Each woman’s cycle is unique. Some women barely notice their period. For others their period can be a monthly ordeal with mood swings, painful cramps, weight gain and heavy bleeding. PMT, PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) is the range of symptoms that correspond with monthly cycles.
Symptoms may include:
Irritability, anger • Mood swings • Depression • Tearful Sensitivity • Confusion or fuzziness • Fatigue • Insomnia • Change in libido • Food cravings; savoury or sweet • Clumsiness, lack of balance • Alcohol intolerance • Acne or oily skin • Abdominal and pelvic cramps • Bloating, weight gain • Headaches or Migraines • Breast swelling/pain • Heart palpitations • Constipation/Nausea
ACUPUNCTURE can help ease symptoms produced by monthly hormone imbalance.
In the West, these symptoms are often thought to be a normal part of menstruation. In Chinese medicine, however, PMT is considered to be the result of an underlying imbalance or deficiency. With a brief time period of regular Acupuncture sessions and nutritional guidance, PMT is often a thing of the past within weeks.
ENERGY & WELL-BEING
You may be diagnosed as having good health with no disease patterns, but still not feel truly well or vitalised.
Chinese Acupuncture practise sees the body as a whole entity, not an object to be treated as separate elements.
We tend to be more aware of bodily physical imbalance, initially, but the underlying causes of illness are often associated with mental, emotional and even spiritual weakness.
Preventative care is easy to achieve with Acupuncture by having sessions less often but regularly (i.e., once a month), rather than several sessions only after illness occurs. Like maintenance for your car the body also responds to fine tuning.
With regular Acupuncture, it is easier to achieve a state of homeostasis, the body's natural inclination to achieve optimum balance. Calming the nervous energy, clearing toxins and improving organ function contribute to a balanced and disease-free mind and body. Acupuncture for energy and well-being is a wonderful complement or alternative in any health regime.
