Women’s bodies align with the rhythms of nature. Acupuncture is effective in helping women through all seasons of life; menstruation, pregnancy, child rearing, and menopause.
Many women struggle with their menstrual cycles, whether they experience painful cramping, clotting, bloating, unpredictable cycles, or mood swings. The combination of acupuncture and wellness practices can help alleviate these symptoms.
As our lifestyles stray farther away from natural rhythms, more women are struggling to conceive. There are a number of reasons why women cannot conceive, some of which can easily be addressed with acupuncture and simple lifestyle changes. Additionally, acupuncture is a wonderful addition to a pre-natal care routine, as it helps relieve stress and other symptoms, such as morning sickness, keeping mama baby happy and healthy!
I consider child rearing an important season of women’s lives because it is a time when women are primarily focused on tending to their children and often neglect their own needs. Acupuncture is a great method of self care for frazzled mamas! Remember ~ if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!
The transition to menopause can be particularly trying for some women as their bodies are trying to calibrate to different hormone levels. Women may experience hot flashes, night sweats, changes in metabolism and libido, and changes in mood. Acupuncture helps the body adjust to the new hormone levels, which provides relief from symptoms.
