Menopause and PMS affect each woman differently. Some common treatable issues include:
• Hot flashes and night sweats (sometimes followed by a chill)
• Change in pattern of periods – shorter/longer, lighter/heavier, more or less time between periods
• Trouble sleeping
• Vaginal dryness
• Mood swings, irritability, crying spells
• Trouble concentrating, feeling foggy or confused
• Menstrual cramps
• Hair loss or thinning, hair growth on face
Early onset menopause can also be delayed with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
If you have recently experienced any of these symptoms, you can see improvement in as little as 7 days to 1 month using acupuncture. Chronic symptoms usually require more treatment time (2 – 3 months) to balance your body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been treating symptoms of premenstrual syndrome for thousands of years. Traditional Chinese Medicine states that when there is an imbalance in the liver, symptoms will occur such as periods of depression, sadness, irritability, crying, and anger also known as PMS. When the Spleen is also involved, a symptoms such as a foggy sense of clumsiness, IBS, or anemia arise. In Chinese medicine, all of the body’s functions are regulated and energized by what the Chinese call “Qi, “which is also known as bioelectric energy or cellular metabolism. When there is stagnation of this Qi energy, there can be a rise of blood stagnation which can lead to lumps, cysts, lesions, and even cancerous tumors in the breasts and uterus. Our treatment is to maintain the free flow of this Qi energy so that any stagnation that caused the pain or discomfort of PMS is fixed and the balance in the body is restored.
