Acupuncture for PMS

Alleviate symptoms of PMS with acupuncture

Menstruation occurs when the uterus sheds its lining once a month. Some pain, cramping, and discomfort during menstrual periods are normal. Excessive pain that causes you to miss work or school is not.

What treatments we typically prescribe?

E-Acupuncture treatment, moxibustion, and herbal therapy are all the options to treat PMS

About your Condition

Painful menstruation is also called dysmenorrhea. There are two types of dysmenorrhea: primary and secondary.
Primary dysmenorrhea occurs in people who experience pain before and during menstruation.

If you’ve had normal periods that become painful later in life, it may be secondary dysmenorrhea. A condition affecting the uterus or other pelvic organs, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids, can cause this.

The herbal medicine and acupuncture mean to regulate and balance the hormone to reduce the PMS level.

Causes of the condition

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) refers to a combination of physical, emotional, and psychological symptoms that occur in the days or weeks before menstruation. Common symptoms of PMS include mood swings, irritability, bloating, breast tenderness, fatigue, headaches, and food cravings. While the exact cause of PMS is not fully understood, hormonal fluctuations, neurotransmitter imbalances, and lifestyle factors may contribute to its development.

Benefits of acupuncture for the condition

Acupuncture offers a holistic approach to managing PMS symptoms by regulating hormone levels, reducing stress, alleviating pain, and promoting overall well-being. At AcuPro Clinic in London, our acupuncture treatments aim to address the root causes of PMS and provide relief from symptoms such as mood swings, bloating, cramps, and fatigue. With personalized care and gentle techniques, we help individuals experience greater comfort and balance throughout their menstrual cycle.

Treatment process

Our acupuncture treatment process for PMS begins with a comprehensive assessment of your menstrual cycle, PMS symptoms, and overall health. During the acupuncture sessions, fine needles are strategically placed on specific acupoints to regulate hormonal fluctuations, improve blood flow, and promote relaxation. Our experienced acupuncturists tailor each treatment plan to address your unique PMS symptoms and support hormonal balance.

Prevention tips

In addition to acupuncture treatment, adopting healthy lifestyle habits and self-care practices can help prevent and minimize PMS symptoms. These include maintaining a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, staying physically active, managing stress levels through relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga, getting adequate sleep, and avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco.

Risk Factors

While acupuncture is generally safe, it may not be suitable for everyone, particularly individuals with bleeding disorders, those taking blood-thinning medications, or those with pacemakers. It’s essential to discuss any pre-existing medical conditions with your acupuncturist before starting treatment.

Lifestyle recommendations

  • Follow a balanced diet rich in nutrients and avoid excessive consumption of caffeine, sugar, and processed foods, which can exacerbate PMS symptoms.
  • Engage in regular physical activity, such as walking, yoga, or swimming, to promote relaxation, improve mood, and reduce stress levels.
  • Practice stress-reduction techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, or acupuncture to support emotional well-being and minimize PMS symptoms.

Aftercare advice

After each acupuncture session, prioritize rest, hydration, and relaxation to support your body’s response to treatment and enhance the effectiveness of acupuncture for managing PMS symptoms. Follow any recommendations provided by your acupuncturist, such as dietary adjustments or lifestyle modifications, to optimize symptom relief and overall menstrual health. Additionally, maintain open communication with your acupuncturist to track your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
