Acupuncture for PMS in Houston, TX

Almost every woman experiences the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome a couple of days before her menstrual cycle begins. Everyone from your doctor to your mother has probably given you different words of advice on how to treat this unwelcome monthly visitor.

If you have been suffering with premenstrual syndrome and can’t find an effective way to ease its effects, maybe it’s time for you to try acupuncture.

Why Is Acupuncture So Effective?

Acupuncture is becoming a popular way to relieve the conditions and symptoms of premenstrual syndrome because of its totally drug-free nature. Most doctors prescribe extra birth control, anti-depression medication, or other dangerous prescription drugs to help. Instead of pumping your body with unnecessary hormones, which can severely affect your mood and personality, acupuncture applies a safer and more holistic approach to the treatment of PMS.

Who Should Receive Acupuncture Treatment?

There are several symptoms of premenstrual syndrome that acupuncture can relieve. Abdominal discomfort, cramping, bloating and breast tenderness are all safely and effectively relieved through acupuncture. The biggest concern for women with premenstrual syndrome is excessive and unpredictable mood swings, which are not only personal concerns, but can cause damage in relationships with loved ones and co-workers.

Where Are the Treatment Points?

Qi(chi), Chinese for energy, flows through our bodies and helps our vital organs function properly. The liver is responsible for carrying blood to the uterus during menses and when the Qi gets blocked, it can cause irritability, anger and bodily pains. Acupuncture will help relieve the tension and stress by freeing up the Qi with extremely fine needles that are painlessly inserted into points throughout the body where the liver’s Qi flows. The skilled acupuncturists at the Acupuncture and Nutrition Clinic are trained to carefully move Qi and will put to ease any worries you may have about the treatment process.

How Often Should You Receive Treatment?

Most professional acupuncturists recommend receiving treatment several times a week or until premenstrual syndrome symptoms start to ease. After initial symptoms wear off it is important to continue seeking treatment until you are relieved of the extreme case with which you originally presented. . The Acupuncture and Nutrition Clinic will work with you to develop a treatment plan that not only works to treat your ailment, but also fits in your budget.

The number of treatments that each person needs will vary. Most people will respond favorably after only one or two treatments and will have relief from the pain; however, the acupuncturist will determine what the best course of treatment is for your specific case.
