Acupuncture for Fertility and Women’s Health

 

One of the areas in which Chinese medicine truly excels is women’s health!

The people who developed this highly sophisticated medicine thousands of years ago lived in agrarian societies, where fertility was of the utmost importance. Therefore, much classical literature was written on the subject of gynecology. This ancient knowledge paired with a contemporary scientific understanding gives us the best tools available for treating women’s health.

Holistic Health and Prevention

With its emphasis on holistic health and prevention, Chinese medicine effectively treats a variety of women’s disorders in the most gentle and least invasive manner possible. Rather than artificially manipulating hormones with synthetic chemicals, acupuncture and herbal medicine gently re-establish the natural flow inherent in a woman’s cycle, and can be used at any stage of a woman’s life to achieve optimum health.

Acupuncture for Fertility

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine enjoy increasingly widespread use as ancillary treatments for infertility, and are both compatible and complementary when used in conjunction with western medical treatments such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
In addition to benefitting fertility, Chinese medicine can also provide relief from many other female disorders, including (but not limited to):

  • Irregular Periods
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Breast Pain
  • P.M.S.
  • Endometriosis
  • Cysts and Fibroids
  • P.C.O.S.
  • Habitual Miscarriage
  • Difficult Menopause
