Women’s Health

Acupuncture for menopause and gynaecological issues relieves a range of physical and mental health symptoms

Western medicine’s approach to the diagnosis and treatment of physical and mental health is based on male-centred research that ignores women’s different biology, especially in the development of prescription drugs. A woman’s body experiences many different, natural hormonal changes throughout her life, beginning at puberty and continuing into older age, which are sensitively correlated with our emotions, nutrition and general lifestyle. Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for gynaecological issues and menopause offers unique benefits for women and can restore hormonal and emotional balance during all of these stages by promoting the body’s innate self-healing system.

How can acupuncture for gynaecological issues help?

Acupuncture aims to help in restoring any imbalances and reaffirming harmony within the body through the insertion of needles at certain “acupoints”. The insertion of needles in these specific acupoints then prompts pathogens to exit the body, reducing pain and allowing hormones to rebalance themselves. Acupuncture’s targeted approach helps promote the healthy movement of energy and blood through areas of the body where problems exist.

Acupuncture can help alleviate symptoms and underlying problems associated with:

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or Premenstrual
  • Dysmorphic Disorder (PMDD)
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Post-Birth Control Pill Related Issues
  • Interstitial Cystitis (IC)
  • Irregular or Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhea)
  • Endometriosis
  • Chronic yeast infections
Acupuncture for menopause

How can acupuncture for menopause help?

Acupuncture for menopause is a healthcare treatment widely practised across the UK and the world to gently and effectively address the physical, emotional and mental symptoms of menopause.

Menopause is a natural phase of life, not a disease, that should be almost unnoticeable when the body is in balance. When the body is not in balance, symptoms can include hot flushes, weight gain, night sweats, aching joints, changes in libido and low mood. This fundamental change in the functioning of the body can cause a whole array of other problems that can feel unpredictable and out of control.

Many women prefer not to take artificial hormones and opt for a more natural route instead, supporting their body through this transitional phase with acupuncture for menopause, good nutrition and stress management techniques.

Acupuncture for menopause can help alleviate your symptoms and underlying problems by:

  • Balancing the release of various female hormones and neurotransmitters such as follicle stimulating hormone, luteotrophic hormone and serotonin
  • Relieving muscle tension and pain
  • Rebalancing heat and the flow of Qi which can be altered by the fluctuations in hormone levels
