Acupuncture for PMS and Painful Periods

Acupuncture for PMS is a safe, effective, holistic way to address menstrual cramps, irritability, emotional ups and downs, bloating, fatigue or hormonal acne around your period.  Prolonged or heavy bleeding can also be treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine.  This Cochrane review found that Chinese herbal medicine was helpful for pain relief and reducing dependency on pain medication during the menstrual cycle.

Acupuncture can help you have less painful periods and resolve other symptoms associated with endometriosis.  At Six Branches Family Acupuncture, the treatment of endometriosis includes herbal medicine and dietary counseling in addition to acupuncture.

Acupuncture for PCOS

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can develop for a broad range of reasons.  At Six Branches Family Acupuncture, we help you get to the root of the problem.  We’ve treated many women with PCOS.  In addition to encouraging ovulate, we can also address symptoms such as acne and hair loss that are common with PCOS.
