Are you struggling with period pain?


Does period pain disrupt your life?

According to an Australian study, 60% of women suffer from painful periods, also known as dysmenorrhea (Calls, 2018). Did you know acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) may reduce period pain by addressing the cause of the pain?

Pain according to TCM is blocked energy. When the energy can’t flow freely around your body it stagnates at certain areas resulting in pain. Stress and other factors can lead to stagnation of energy and when this happens in the uterus, it can lead to very painful menstruation (Macocia, 2006). Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into the skin to stimulate the body to regulate the flow of energy. It is a natural and effective way to reduce period pain.
Findings of a recent study on acupuncture for period pain showed those who received acupuncture still felt the benefits 9 months after treatment was completed.

If you don’t like needles, there are other TCM treatments such as Chinese massage (Tui Na) which work in a similar way.
