Women’s Health issues can be complex and unique to each person. However, traditional Western Medicine solutions are full of invasive procedures that can alter Hormones. Other solutions include prescription drugs that can have strong side effects for those taking them. Unfortunately, many women believe these are the only options.
However, Acupuncture can be a tremendous solution in addressing a growing number of Women’s Health issues. These are the six most common, but there are many more so be sure you talk to me directly when filling out your health intake so you can get each of your questions answered.
Menstrual Issues, Menopause, and Endometriosis
Many women suffer from complications during their menstrual cycles. No two women are the same so this time of the month can be debilitating for some, causing extreme pain and discomfort. Acupuncture can be a great help in addressing the symptoms of Endometriosis. Acupuncture can also be a solution for the headaches, cycle irregularity and abdominal cramps that come each month.
Acupuncture is also a great option for those closing out their Reproductive years and entering Menopause. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for all the symptoms that come during this time including hot flashes, moodiness, insomnia, heart palpitations, just to name a few.
Infertility and Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a glorious time but it also can be challenging for many women. Acupuncture treatments can help with the low-back pain many Pregnant women suffer from but it can also help with issues of morning sickness and nausea.
For those suffering from Infertility, Acupuncture & Herbs can address the irregular menstrual cycles and endometriosis that can cause these issues. Acupuncture directs blood flow to the reproductive organs to help regulate the menstrual cycle. I have been helping women conceive naturally for the past twenty years ~ in addition to IUI and IVF Support Programs.
Research has shown that, for a variety of reasons, more women than men suffer from Insomnia. Clinical studies have shown that Acupuncture is a great help in improving both sleep quality and duration. But the key is regular Acupuncture treatments. Talk to me about your individualized care plan so you can get back to a restful night’s sleep!
Depression and Anxiety
For those looking for a drug-free option, clinical research has also shown that Acupuncture is just as effective as Antidepressants but without the harsh side effects that can come from some prescription medication. Regular Acupuncture treatments can help lower Blood Pressure, reduce instances of Anxiety and panic attacks and help to lower Stress.
Chronic pain is an issue for millions of people and most people treat it by popping an over-the-counter pain medication. However, consistent Acupuncture treatments can help with various chronic pain conditions whether from arthritis, fibromyalgia, or injury. Acupuncture can help with joint pain and the chronic Inflammation that can come with Arthritis. Please contact me to see what care options are available if you suffer from chronic pain.
One of the key components of Acupuncture is how it increases blood flow and this can certainly benefit skin health. Facial Acupuncture has been shown to reduce puffiness and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Most women don’t think of Acupuncture for its Anti-Aging benefits but it has been clinically proven to be a great asset to improving facial skin health, thus improving a woman’s appearance and mood.
