Menstrual Disorders

East Asian Medicine is one of the best ways to heal problems with your menstrual cycle. Acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal therapy and nutritional guidance quickly relieve painful cramps, irregular cycle lengths, troubling food cravings and other symptoms.  I've seen symptoms completely disappear in 4 to 6 sessions, and my patients are always amazed to discover how quickly our medicine helps them have pain free menstrual periods.

The treatments are designed to harmonize the flow of blood, to improve it's quality so that it flows easily and smoothly.  Acupuncture also promotes harmonious communication within your reproductive system, so that the hormonal messages that regulate your menstrual cycle are transmitted and received easily and smoothly.  This means the timing will be improved so that the lunar phase that governs the onset of flow, as well as ovulation happen at regular intervals.  

We'll also identify the lifestyle factors that support balanced, regular, pain free menstrual cycles.  There are many proven techniques  for improving your cycle with nutrition and exercise.  You'll receive helpful guidance, and if you're willing to make it beneficial changes, you'll notice improvements pretty quickly.

"The treatments are really helping! My period arrived today! That's 29 days since the start of my last period. A big improvement!  Last month, the cycle was 45 or 50 days. My symptoms this time were minimal.  I have some slight cramping, but feel fine otherwise. I've been drinking the herbal tea all week, had no coffee, and just a little bit of chocolate! Thanks for checking in on me, and for your wonderful work!"
