PMS & Menopause
The metaphors of TCM correspond elegantly to the female reproductive system, phasic temperature shifts, and lifetime changes in menstruation. Acupuncture strongly regulates the smooth muscles of the reproductive system to treat cramping and other menstrual related pain like breast tenderness, back pain and headache. Chinese herbs can effectively mimic hormones and can be used in lieu of hormone replacement or to regulate the cycle to prevent PMS. As a fertility specialist and one of the first 50 practitioners certified by the ABORM, I have 10 years of experience regulating women’s cycles and hormone levels. Expect 4-8 treatments and herbs if necessary.
