Treating Menstruation with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

It is important to establish a diagnosis from a Chinese Medicine perspective in order to effectively treat symptoms and problems that you experience in connection with your menstrual cycle.

No woman is just like another even if they experience the same type of pain and illness during their menstruation. At our clinic, you will be answering the questions about the timing of the pain, the location of the pain, the character of the pain and whether or not it is aggravated or relieved by cold, heat or pressure, the regularity and length of the cycle. Practitioner will also check the quality of the pulse and the color of the tongue. As a result, we will see the bigger picture and understand what is causing you these problems. Therefore we will able to provide you a personalized assessment and comprehensive treatment plan that includes acupuncture, Chinese Herb Medicine, diet, and lifestyle changes recommendations.

When Should I Come in for a Treatment?

Give us a call and explain what your symptoms are and we will let you know when the best time to make a diagnosis and start a treatment is for you.
