Acupuncture For Women's Health In London
Acupuncture For Women's Health
Acupuncture treatment aims to bring back the internal harmony that creates good health. Life is seen as a series of seven year cycles from birth, growth, sexual maturation, the menopause and beyond. A central concept in Chinese Medicine is to respect and support the ebb and flow of life's natural cycles.
Pressures Of Modern Life
Many women's issues may stem from difficulties with our hormonal balance and reproductive system (menstruation) which can affect women from adolescence through to the menopause. The frustrations and emotional stresses of modern life can be a contributing factor in this area. Women are twice as likely to suffer from insomnia. The way in which we feel about ourselves as women is affected by the youth and appearance-obsessed culture we live in. Many issues to do with body and our self-image affect women's health and women's relationship with food. This can bring digestive, skin, emotional and psychological issues into the picture.
Acupuncture For Women's Holistic Health
Acupuncture is an effective and powerful therapy to help all women on all levels to feel better and have greater self-confidence and improved self-worth. Acupuncture can bring the mind, body, emotions and spirit back into harmony and help benefit a woman's overall outlook, self-esteem and appearance. I always use body acupuncture to strengthen or clear the relevant organs in addition to face points as in Traditional Chinese Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.
Acupuncture For Pregnancy Concerns
Pregnancy issues such as morning sickness, high blood pressure, carpal tunnel syndrome and aches and pains, oedema, breech baby, labour and post-natal issues such as mastitis and post-natal depression can be treated by acupuncture safely and effectively. Acupressure for pregnancy can also be offered. TCM Acupuncture is effective for helping women come through all these difficult issues and more, both emotionally, psychologically and physically. Some of us may also be seeking acupuncture for fertility, infertility.
Common Symptoms Affecting Women
Certain symptoms exclusively or disproportionately affect women more than men, e.g. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and acupuncture treatment can be offered for these, alongside period pain.
Acupuncture For Menopause
Early Acupuncture Treatment For Menopause Helps Minimise Symptoms
Prevention is better than cure. Women who are likely to suffer more intensely from some of the symptoms of menopause can be diagnosed and treated in the perimenopausal years before cessation of menses, so that classic symptoms such as hot flushes, sweating, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, insomnia, heightened emotions and vaginal dryness can be either avoided or reduced in severity.
How Acupuncture For Menopause Can Help Women
Acupuncture helps women manage many of these symptoms and re-balance hormones and emotions which helps to ease the change helping women move forward positively into a new stage of their lives.
What We Fear Controls Our Symptoms
If women look towards to this time with dread, and fear the loss of their fertility, then some women will experience the symptoms especially in the peri-menopause, the years leading up to the cessation of menstruation when women's fertility gradually declines. The re-adjustment of hormones at the menopause can create a myriad of stresses and symptoms. Acupuncture treatment helps women adjust to these changes more smoothly, helping the flow of qi to circulate and helping re-balance emotions so women feel less fearful of the menopause.
Our Cultural Views Shape Women's Experience Of Their Menopause
"The Menopause" as a disease is created by our increasingly youth and beauty obsessed, consumer culture where older women and men can feel less valued despite their greater experience, maturity and wisdom. In this context, no wonder irritability, frustration, anxiety and depression and other symptoms are experienced by some women at times. In certain Eastern cultures women are revered following the menopause. Women are granted special privileges and awarded a higher status in the community. In these cultures women report few menopausal symptoms.
Acupuncture Helps Support Natural Cycles
Chinese Acupuncture treatment helps women re-adjust to all life's natural cycles including the menopause rather than postponing or suppressing this change by prescribing female hormones.
Positively Managing The Transition
The menopause is a time when a woman's energy is no longer directed externally into re-production giving women, traditionally the givers and carers the opportunity bring some of their energy back to themselves (no longer losing monthly blood) as they are liberated from the monthly menstrual cycle and birth control.
