A regular menstrual cycle is not only a normal and essential part of a woman’s life, it’s also a regular indicator of the overall health of the body. If you are experiencing irregular, heavy or painful periods or have symptoms such as breast tenderness or pre-menstrual tension, these all can be an indication that the body is out of balance.
If your body is strong and healthy, it will be able to control your periods. When your body gets weakened by stress, illness or age, it can lose its capacity to control the regularity or intensity of your cycle – leading to irregular, heavy or painful periods. This will often occur in teenage girls because their bodies aren’t strong enough yet to have good control over their cycle.
Chinese medicine and acupuncture focuses on removing stagnation from the kidney channel and improving the flow of qi to the kidney meridian. By tonifying the kidney Chinese medicine can assist in achieving a healthy balance.
We encourage anyone who has a history of problem-periods to have treatment as soon as possible. Delaying treatment (even when using the pill to control the symptoms) can lead to other health problems and reduced fertility.
We will use your specific set of symptoms to make a treatment prescription tailored for you. Your treatment may include Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, cupping, massage, naturopathic herbals or nutritional supplements. Each treatment prescription is unique and will be discussed with you to get the mix right for your needs.
