Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has been used for centuries to balance women’s hormones, monthly cycle, and aide in the ability to conceive. More scientific studies have been conducted which prove its effectiveness. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can work either alongside modern Western medicine or alone to regulate women’s health issues.

Women’s hormones can also be affected by outside factors such as diet, lack of sleep, and stress. Stress can cause changes to our cortisol levels which can lead to other health issues involving the hormones. At 16th St Acupuncture we address all these factors and stress the importance of lifestyle changes when needed.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can effectively treat PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), dysmenorrhea (Painful Menstruation) amenorrhea (Missed or no periods) irregular menstrual cycles, endometriosis, ovarian cysts and fibroids (dependent on the size).
