Menstruation, Menopause, and Stress Relief

Chinese medicine has been treating menstrual hormonal imbalances for over 2,000 years. Western medicine doesn’t possess many tools to help regulate menstrual cycles and symptoms associated with menopause beyond hormone therapy and toxic medication. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, on the other hand, greatly impact the subtle and complexities of a woman’s cycle and understands them as imbalances in the body to be corrected. Acupuncture is a gentle, natural, non-evasive and effective way to deal with the symptoms associated with menstrual issues and menopause.

Menstruation Issues

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help regulate the menstrual flow naturally while working on the endocrine system to restore better hormone function and help symptoms such as:

  • Irritability
  • PMS
  • Emotional instability
  • Cramps
  • Lower back pain
  • Breast tenderness
  • Irregular Menses
  • Digestive issues
  • Clotting
  • Headaches
  • PCOS
  • Lack of ovulation [anovulation]

Throughout menopause, acupuncture and herbal medicine can reduce or eliminate:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Relieve pain
  • Increased heart rate (tachycardia)
  • Weight gain through stabilizing blood sugar
  • Reduce emotional stress
  • Painful and stiff joints
  • Stabilize mood swings
At Wellnest Acupuncture + Holistic Medicine we understand that menopause, although a natural phase in a women’s life, can sometimes greatly impact her social and sexual domains. We strive to make this transition as smooth as possible for her.

I really can’t believe I’m writing this. I’m a hairdresser and due to the grind of the profession have suffered through carpal tunnel for the past two years. Garryn not only reduced my pain, but ultimately saved my career. Thank you! I mean, acupuncture even helped with my anxiety. Talk about a two for one!
