Acupuncture and Women’s Reproductive Systems
Acupuncture can help a woman through her entire reproductive cycle. From her first menses to her last, acupuncture helps regulate the period so that a woman can have a healthy life without suffering through bloating, heavy periods with cramps, and other issues.
Acupuncture works in a different, more natural way from all types of typical medicines. The body is made up of different channels, or meridians, which represent different organs and organ functions. Often there are obstructed movements in the meridians that run throughout the length of the body. These obstructed movements cause swelling up or blockages of energy in some parts of reproductive organs while others get deprived from such energy. Acupuncture regulates the blood flow and hormones in these channels by placing needles on strategic sites to stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals to the reproductive organs.
By obtaining balance in the body of Qi (your body’s internal energy), Blood, Yin and Yang, acupuncture can help women through all stages of her life:
Regulation of Menstrual Cycle:
Aids with other special treatments like in-vitrio fertilization [IVF], and hormone therapy
Swelling in joints
Lack of energy
