Many gynaecological conditions such as period pain, irregular or absent periods, menopause have been successfully treated with Traditional Chinese medicine (acupuncture and herbs) for the past millennium.
The cascade of hormones which initiates and controls the monthly cycle begins with activity in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. Although the precise mechanism is unclear we can observe the effect of acupuncture upon this cycle and other reproductive health issues.
Conditions which can be helped include:
- Menses: PMT, painful / heavy / late / absent periods, mid-cycle bleeding
- Menopause: hot flushes, irritability, exhaustion
- Pregnancy: SPD; morning sickness; childbirth; breech birth; post-natal depression.
