PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME (PMS)
Acupuncture for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Did you know that PMS symptoms are actually signs of underlying health issues?
Experiencing PMS can be a real pain. Symptoms and severity can vary from very little discomfort to extreme pain that leaves you planning your life around your cycle. This can be caused by hormonal imbalances which in turn can be due to stagnation or deficiencies of blood and/or qi (the energy that moves your blood).
Your liver is a very important organ when it comes to PMS symptoms. When the liver is not functioning properly, it can take out its frustrations on nearby organs, creating discomfort in several ways including headaches, menstrual cramps and irritability. Making sure this organ is healthy and happy can play a large role in how you experience your monthly cycle.
We have been told that PMS is "normal", but in the Acupuncture community we do not believe it is something we should have to live with. With the right combination of regular acupuncture treatments, herbal medicine and other supporting modalities you should be on your way to a healthy, pain free cycle.
What should I expect with treatment?
Treatments vary from person to person. Although we may experience similar symptoms, the root cause for these symptoms may be different for each of us.
While some may see results within several treatments, others may need more care and attention depending on the severity of the symptoms and how long they have been experiencing them.
Your acupuncturist will perform a thorough intake and investigate what they believe to be the root cause of your discomfort. Once this is determined you will receive a treatment plan based on your individual needs. Results are often best when following your acupuncturists treatment guidelines.
