can your therapies help with my periods?
Acupuncture is a great treatment for many issues associated with periods through to perimenopause. We offer a range of therapies including chinese herbs, reflexology, nutrition and womb massage, often in combination to get you the best results.
It can be difficult to know what to do when you’re suffering with problems that are related to periods and the changes that happen as part of the perimenopause. Many people come to us as a last resort, feeling that they haven’t been properly listened to or that the treatment suggested hasn’t worked. And the key difference with our approach is that we want to get to the bottom of why your hormones are suffering. We take the time to listen and dig deep to get a full understanding of all areas of your life that could be impacting upon them. Whether you’ve just started your periods and are experiencing problems, coming off contraception or noticing changes which you suspect might be perimenopausal we are here to help.
Some of the common problems we see in clinic include:
- Painful periods
- No periods
- Heavy periods
- Irregular cycles
- Peri-menopausal/menopausal problems
- Hormonal emotional imbalances, anxiety and depression
Our therapies can help bring balance to hormones that feel out of whack, reduce stress and improve many of the side effects so many people experience, including insomnia, digestive issues, hot flushes, migraines, low energy, mood changes and vaginal changes, including dryness, thrush, itching, repeat UTIs, which are all too common.
As with all our work we take the time to explain what is happening and why and what all the options are that you could access to help improve symptoms, these include nutrition, exercise and lifestyle information. We can also help you if you’d like to get blood tests done to check your hormone levels and what the results all mean.
