How Can Acupuncture Help Relieve Symptoms of PMS and Menopause?
Acupuncture isn’t for every woman–but it is for most. In a government-recorded health study, the success rate for PMS treatments with acupuncture was almost 78%. Many women report feeling more clear-headed immediately after their session in addition to feeling less bloated and sweaty. Many women report positive mood changes and decreased cramping or pain as well. As for menopause, more women report reduction or cessation of hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, insomnia and heart palpitations.
There are many theories as to how this traditional treatment, a standard for centuries in Asia, helps us deal with health problems. The traditional explanation is that it helps open the flow of “qi” or “chi” (vital energy) throughout the body. (For PMS purposes specifically, the qi is considered to be congested in the liver.) Acupuncture has been proven to stimulate endorphins and in many cases, doctors believe it helps to increase healthy blood flow within the body.
