5 Ways Acupuncture Supports Women’s Health
A woman’s body is in a constant state of change. From puberty to menopause, without forgetting about pregnancy, there are many ways in which women of all ages can benefit from the natural curative properties of Chinese medicine and acupuncture. These two related modalities have long been a go-to when it comes to finding symptomatic relief and long-term healing. Additionally, this form of alternative medicine has an extensive history of treating and supporting women’s health.
- Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Acupuncture rebalances and increases the body’s flow of energy, which becomes disrupted over time by stress, overwork and poor dietary habits.
Regular Acupuncture sessions can regulate your blood flow and, therefore, treat cramps, headaches and other pains related to menstruation.
Endometriosis is a painful autoimmune condition that affects women of all ages and is often misdiagnosed. Backaches, severe cramping, heavy bleeding, and abdominal pain are some of the most common symptoms of this malady. Moreover, endometriosis can also hinder one’s ability to conceive naturally, if at all.
Treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine is highly effective for those who endure continuous pain and hormonal fluctuations.
By directing blood flow to the reproductive organs, a skilled Chinese medicine practitioner can help regulate menstrual cycles, thus improving your fertility. Women around the world have turned to acupuncture to help support fertility for natural conception or in combination with IVF.
- Pregnancy And Postpartum Support
During pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences a great number of changes in a very short period. It is, therefore, very common for pregnant women to experience symptoms such as morning sickness, lethargy, insomnia or swelling, among others. Because many treatments and medications are not considered safe to use during the gestation period, acupuncture presents a safe and effective alternative treatment for symptomatic relief.
Additionally, acupuncture has been proven to be beneficial in postpartum support. By rebuilding the Qi and regulating your blood flow, it can prevent postpartum depression and increase milk supply and enhance your energy levels.
- Menopause and Perimenopause
Perimenopause and menopause can affect women in vastly different ways. Common symptoms include but are not limited to hot flashes, dizziness, insomnia, mood changes and vaginal dryness. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a very effective way to treat menopausal symptoms due to its connection to Kidney energy. The kidneys are responsible for growth, maturation and aging.
Excessive stress, overwork, poor diet, lack of sleep are some things that can deplete us and can make menopause more taxing.
