Reproductive Health

Oriental medicine is beneficial for many aspects of women’s health including reproductive health and fertility, pregnancy and post birth support, and menopause relief.

Oriental medicine understands the cycles within women’s lives. One cycle is identified as the cycle of seven and according to this cycle a woman should begin her menstrual cycle around the age of 14 years and complete menstruation, enter menopause, around 49 years of age. Cycles of Life

Many menstrual problems (such as menstrual irregularity, menstrual pain or endometriosis, PMS, PCOS and thrush to name but a few) are now considered to be a “normal” part our monthly cycle. However, just because it has become the norm does not mean that it is a normal or healthy way to be.

Oriental medicine can help bring you back into harmony with your natural cycles and once your menstrual cycle is regulated many other cycles will fall into place more easily including fertility or natural contraception.

Pregnancy

Many clients have found that acupuncture during pregnancy helps them feel nourished and supported. There is strong evidence (1) supporting the effectiveness of acupuncture for back and pelvic pain during pregnancy. Pre-birth acupuncture is a series of treatments starting at 36 weeks to help prepare you for childbirth and may result in a less stressful labour. Research by Vas et al (2012) has shown that “moxibustion … is effective and safe to correct non-vertex presentation when used between 33 and 35 weeks of gestation.” (2). You may also wish to discuss with your midwife the option of acupuncture when when your baby is overdue.

    Postnatal Support

    Postnatal support is important for both mother and child particularly if the labour required any form of medical intervention. Oriental medicine treats conditions such as perineal discomfort, breast-feeding problems (insufficient lactation and mastitis) and minor postnatal depression. In addition, acupuncture is excellent for helping you restore the energy you expend in your new role as a parent.
