PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) is relatively easy condition for acupuncturists to treat. Patients usually require 2 visits a month until their first symptom free menstrual cycle. After two normal menstrual cycles one treatment every other month should be sufficient to keep your system in balance. Obviously some patients need fewer visits and some patients need a greater number of visits.
A woman’s endocrine system is complex and can be easily pushed out of balance by changes in weather patterns, temperature fluctuations, humidity, stress levels, body weight changes, food choices, medication, and many other common events that disrupt the body’s normal balance.
A stressful life style can cause painful periods, insomnia, irritability and anger. This pattern responds quickly to acupuncture treatments.
Blood Stagnation PMS
It is common to have pain prior and during menstruation with the pattern. The interplay of hormones is out of balance and this causes pain. The treatment principle for this pattern is to move blood or increase circulation to relieve pain and balance the hormone levels.
