Response to stress is as emotional as it is physical
Pain & stress are directly related to gynecological issues
Painful cycles. PMS, cramping, clotting, GI upset, headaches -all considered part of the process- is not how Traditional Chinese Medicine views a "normal" cycle. There are specific reasons these symptoms manifest; acupuncture, its adjuncts & herbal formulas along with nutritional health balance hormones, reduce your body's inflammatory & stress responses, regulates & promotes gynecological health.
Perimenopause, menopause & post menopause can be a painful, emotionally exhaustive rollercoaster. Mood changes, weight gain, insomnia, hot flashes/night sweats, headaches, vertigo, vaginal dryness, cognitive changes, anxiety & depression may be experienced in any stage. Fibromyalgia symptoms mimic perimenopause indicators, intensifying when progesterone & estrogen levels are low, with myalgia pain being chronic in postmenopausal women.
Looking through the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine these symptoms identify a pattern & it is that pattern that is treated. Regulating the liver, invigorating the spleen while nourishing your essence are provided during an acupuncture/adjunct treatment yet specific to your pattern & needs.
