Does PMS leave you irritated and miserable?

Are you suffering from intense menstrual cramps every month?

If you are miserable every month because of breast tenderness, fatigue, irritability, headaches, cramping, acne, heavy menstrual bleeding, and irregular periods there is something that you can do to help…

Traditional Chinese medicine has been treating menstrual irregularities and gynecological problems for over 2000 years.

A combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle modifications will be used in order to rebalance the body and regulate the menstrual cycle. In Traditional Chinese medicine we observe the individual as a whole so we are not looking only at the menstrual cycle but also at digestion, sleep patterns, energy levels and other health factors. As a result, as the treatments progress, you will likely find that your overall health will improve. You will experience less stress, better digestion, more energy as well as a reduction in menstrual symptoms.

Acupuncture has been proven to effect the functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland and the release of hormonal substances throughout the body. This helps regulate the menstrual cycle and reduces menstrual symptoms.
