From menstrual irregularities, pre conception care, pregnancy support, post natal care, we can help support the female body both physically and mentally.
Acupuncture can help to restore balance through hormonal pathways that run through the body. By increasing blood flow to certain areas of the body, balancing hormones, and supporting the mind and body, we can help support women going through all stages of their lives.
Quite commonly too, we will use herbal medicine & natural supplements to help get your body back to a level of homeostasis so it can function optimally.
From period pain, irregular periods, PMS to no period at all. Acupuncture is able to help rebalance hormones and nourish the uterus and ovaries to allow a period to FLOW.
Let's not forget menopause- acupuncture is able to help regulate hormones related to menopause symptoms, including hot flushes, insomnia and anxiety.
PRE CONCEPTION CARE
Acupuncture should be a part of your pre-conception care plan as we will aim treatments to keep stress to a minimum, provide emotional support, balance hormones and regulate periods and ovulation to give you the best chance to conceive.
Regular acupuncture treatments are safe throughout the whole pregnancy journey.
