Let’s face it, period problems are no fun. Period. From PMS to painful, heavy bleeding, even the best laid plans can be
derailed by your cycles.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Acupuncture and Chinese
medicine work quickly to correct all manner of menstrual and
pelvic issues, which means that period freedom can be
- Breast Tenderness
- Cramping / Painful Periods
- Headaches / Migraines
- Pre-menstrual Nausea / Bloating
- Early Periods
- Late Periods
- Irregular Periods
- Heavy or Scanty Periods
- PMS / PMDD
Pelvic conditions Include:
- Ovarian Cysts
- Pelvic Pain
- Interstitial Cystitis
- Pelvic Infections
- Scar Tissue
- Vaginal Discharge
- Vaginal Infections
Birth control pills are often prescribed to deal with these issues, and in severe cases, surgery may even be warranted. However, acupuncture has long been used to effectively treat menstrual and pelvic conditions, reducing the need for medication or surgery.
We recommend once weekly treatment for 4 weeks initially. During this time, consistent care is key for addressing the hormones at different stages of the cycle, which helps create lasting change. At the end of 1-2 cycles, we expect to see at least 50-80% improvement in all symptoms. Most of our patients experience significant improvement within one menstrual cycle.
We suggest that patients receive both acupuncture and herbal therapy, as they work in conjunction to achieve the desired results as quickly as possible.
Our fertility journey lead us to Kandace Cahill. We were with another Acupuncture Physician who referred us to Well Woman Acupuncture when it became more obvious that I might need a specialist. The combination of acupuncture and herbs has made more of an impact on my menstrual cycle and symptoms than any other treatments I’ve had. I never knew what “normal” looked like until now and I am so very thankful for Kandace’s care, attention and intuition. During our treatment time, she is careful to listen, is very thoughtful in the way she treats and will make the necessary adjustments to achieve the goal. She has great success rates in helping families (husband’s too!) conceive – as you will see all the successful family photos in her lobby. So inspiring. But her services run the span of menstruation issues, fertility, pregnancy all the way to menopause. She is a gift to this community.
