Women's Health Q&A

Can acupuncture help women’s health?

Acupuncture always aims to restore harmony and balance to the body, making it a medication-free and effective treatment for:

  • Painful or irregular menstrual cycles
  • Symptoms of menopause
  • Endometriosis
  • Morning sickness and nausea
  • Postpartum depression
  • Migraines

Acupuncture can also help women address stress, anxiety, and depression. In the hands of a skilled licensed acupuncturist, it’s safe for most pregnant women for alleviating back pain, fatigue, nausea, and general discomfort.

How does Twin Acupuncture address women’s health concerns?

Because women’s bodies face significant changes, challenges, and adaptations over time, it’s useful to have versatility in treating them. No matter your lifestyle or season of life, Twin Acupuncture provides help for:

Athletic support

Active women know that lingering sports injuries, muscle soreness, and muscle imbalances can throw them off their game or interrupt their training entirely. Twin Acupuncture can treat sprains and strains, pulled muscles, areas of tightness or tension that aren’t recovering properly, and injuries.

Acupuncture, cupping, and dry needling are available to help you heal and prevent future issues.

Menstrual cramps, menopausal symptoms, and PCOS

Acupuncture helps you reduce inflammation, stabilize hormones, and increase circulation to your reproductive organs. This gentle treatment can provide medication-free assistance for various problems by regulating your endocrine system.

Perhaps most importantly, Twin Acupuncture works to decrease chronic pain and help you relax.

Discomfort during pregnancy

Your body adapts throughout your pregnancy, and a less enjoyable part of this remarkable adaptation process may include aches and pains, especially lower back pain. Throughout pregnancy and after delivery, medication-free pain relief is important.

What about the mental aspect of women’s health issues?

Women are twice as likely to face anxiety disorders as men, which often occurs with depression. It can be difficult to separate the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of life as women can face overwhelming changes throughout their lives. With sufficient support, women can overcome these challenges and gain stability and hope.

Acupuncture can address anxiety as a natural treatment when facing significant life transitions, prenatal or postpartum depression, and stress. Promoting hormonal balance and endorphins can also benefit your state of mind.
