Acupuncture therapy can strengthen the reproductive system, restore the hormonal balance in the body and increase blood flow in the reproductive organs to increase the chances of conception.

Menstrual Cycle, PMS, and Menopause:

Acupuncture is a great option for treating menstrual cycle irregularities as well as reducing symptoms relating to PMS or menopause.  Treatment protocols aim to regulate unbalanced hormones, restore circulation, and clear blockages within the body that tend to cause physical or emotional symptoms including but not limited to cramping, bloating, headaches, irregular menstruation, hot flashes, mood swings, or anxiety. Depending on the patient’s condition and general well-being, herbal medicine may also be recommended along with acupuncture.

Morning sickness:

Morning sickness can be reduced significantly with acupuncture

by selecting points that calm the nervous system, relieve stress, and clear out blockages within the body and digestive tract leading to nausea and vomiting. 

Postpartum depression:

There has been great success treating postnatal and mental health with

acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Treatment protocols may include a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and moxibustion which help to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, along with promoting hormone balance in the endocrine system and treating

other related symptoms such as fatigue, poor appetite or pain. 


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, many factors can contribute to PCOS, therefore

It is important to consider all aspects of the body when treating this condition; including menstrual cycle irregularities, excessive hair growth or hair loss, weight gain, fatigue, and changes in mood or mental health. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help restore blood flow to the ovaries and nourishment to the endocrine system, as well as promote balance throughout the body. 


Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be used to treat symptoms occurring with endometriosis by reducing blood stagnation and increasing blood circulation to the uterus and lower abdomen. Though long term treatment may be recommended depending on the severity of the condition, acupuncture has proven to be effective for relieving symptoms such as dysmenorrhea, low back pain, pain with intercourse, constipation or diarrhea, fatigue, bloating, and nausea.  

Many women are delighted to find that regulating their cycle alleviates other seemingly unrelated issues, like digestion problems, fatigue, acne, or even excess weight.  Luckily, acupuncture and herbs can be extremely effective at balancing hormones and bringing the entire body back into optimal health.
