Painful Menstruation (dysmenorrhea)

Chinese medicine (acupuncture, herbal medicine or other Chinese medicine modalities) has been treating dysmenorrhea for centuries and offers very real solutions for many women. Chinese medicine considers the body is a balance of qi, blood and yin-yang within whole body, as well as within each organ and among the organs. Dysmenorrhea is an imbalance or disharmony of qi, blood or yin-yang. Chinese medicine regulates this imbalance and promotes the smooth flow of qi and blood throughout the body. Therefore Chinese medicine:

  • Reduces menstrual discomfort
  • Relieves abdominal pain
  • Improves headache and menstrual migraine
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Attenuates gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Improves overall quality of life
