How Can Acupuncture Help With Woman’s Health?
Women’s health refers to the branch of medicine that focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of diseases and conditions that affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) describes illness as a disruption in the smooth flow of Qi (body energy) throughout the meridians (energetic pathways). Menstruation should be painless and accompanied by minimal pre and post-menstrual signs and symptoms. Naturally, a woman body changes day by day to stay in tune with her cycle. Stress, poor eating, excess cold, inability to exercise and insufficient rest, change the bodies ability to evolve. Over time, there is an accumulation of stagnation from the body becoming deficient (tired). By inserting very fine needles in specific locations it is possible to strengthen the bodies deficiencies, move any blockages and subdue any excess, restoring the body to its natural balance of mind, body and spirit causing a feeling of well being.
