Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of endometrial (uterine) tissue outside the uterus. It causes chronic pain in the pelvic region, painful periods, abnormal uterine bleeding, and infertility. Traditional Western medicine offers no known causes or cures for this often debilitating condition; it can’t be detected by ultrasound, and surgical removal of the tissue is often temporary.
– Alleviates pain by increasing circulation in the pelvic region
– Enhances the immune and endocrine systems by stimulating the autonomic nervous system, therefore, helping to eliminate stray endometrial cells
– Relieves stress, corrects disruptions in the flow of the body’s energy, and restores optimal health
Custom herbal formulas work in conjunction with acupuncture treatments to help reduce pain and control endometriosis. A warm, dairy-free, and organic diet is recommended to reduce the exogenous estrogens and inflammatory responses that contribute to endometrial growth.

Acupuncture and herbal therapy can help to regulate menstrual cycles and address menstruation-related issues safely, naturally, and are hormone-free ways to correct hormonal imbalances.
To regulate the menstrual cycle, a diagnosis will be made based on health history, pulse and tongue diagnosis, and lifestyle. The average time for treatment is 3-6 months as it will take time for the body
to rebalance its energetics. Adding herbal therapy to your treatments will enhance the therapeutic effects and shorten the treatment time.

The typical Western medical treatment for menopause is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), which is usually started when the first symptoms of menopause appear. While HRT may alleviate hot flashes and prevent osteoporosis, it also increases the risk of breast, ovarian and uterine cancer, and has a number of significant side effects.
These treatments can detect energetic imbalances that occur in the body and quickly relieve symptoms such as hot flashes, foggy mind, and irritability.
Traditional Chinese Medicine does not focus on treating one symptom. Instead, it aims to correct the underlying energetic imbalances each individual has. Each treatment is customized with different acupuncture points, herbs, and lifestyle, and diet recommendations.
If you’re perimenopausal (pre-menopause) or in any stage of menopause and want to learn more about how acupuncture and herbal medicine can help you, please feel free to contact us.
