If you’ve always believed that period cramps, irregular or painful periods are all quite normal, forget it. Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), breakthrough bleeding and headaches associated with your period don’t have to be something you’ve got to suffer in silence, either.
Taking medication to simply ease the pain and discomfort doesn’t get to the real cause of the problem.
However, Acupuncture is a natural, drug-free, effective way of restoring mental, physical and emotional balanced.
Getting right to the point
Your acupuncturist will specifically devise your individual treatment depending on the kind of problems you are experiencing.
What a relief! Acupuncture provides a drug-free alternative to aid in treatment of gynaecological and obstetric conditions.
How does it work?
Acupuncture treatment will release the “Happy Hormones”, (body chemicals known as endorphins), which will effectively provide quick pain relief. Other gynaecological and obstetric problems are treated by regulation of hormonal function.
While some conditions do respond very well to a single treatment, in most cases, a course of treatment may be necessary. The frequency and duration of treatments will vary according to individual conditions. Generally speaking, the longer a patient has had a particular condition, the longer it will take to treat.
