Menstrual Irregularity

Irregular or painful periods can make life much more difficult for those suffering. Some women try to “power through” menstrual problems with painkillers, while others get fatigued, feel faint, or otherwise are unable to work or do anything for the first few days of their period. Additionally, an irregular menstrual cycle accounts for 30-40% of fertility difficulties in women. So, resolving your period problems is an important part of your sexual health.

Fortunately, acupuncture can help to regulate your hormones, promote ovulation, and improve ovarian and uterine blood flow. Additionally, it can help relieve painful cramps and even prevent them altogether by removing blockages and allowing Qi to flow once again.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where the tissue that lines the uterus (called endometrium) grows outside of the uterus. It can grow on the the ovaries, fallopian tubes, pelvic tissue, and even grow up to the large intestine and lungs. Over time, it’s possible for this condition to effect many organs in the body. Commonly, this painful uterine disorder causes chronic pain, period pain, pain during intercourse, fertility problems, fatigue, and nausea.

There are Western medical solutions to endometriosis like hormone therapy, conservative surgery, and IVF. While these methods can be assisted by acupuncture and other TCM methodologies, TCM can also be used as a holistic alternative to Western endometriosis treatments.

Herbal remedies coupled with acupuncture releases Qi while also providing Qi to the appropriate parts of your body, assisting your body in creating the hormones it needs, naturally. Additionally, acupuncture is an excellent method of holistic pain relief, which can be utilized whether you decide to go with surgery, IVF or as you manage your endometriosis.

UTI

A urinary tract infection is a painful bacterial infection that can cause annoyances like a frequent need to urinate or more dangerous symptoms like a fever or chills. While most doctors will prescribe antibiotics to treat urinary tract infections, there are holistic methods to combat a UTI.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide many solutions for UTIs, including herbal relief, acupuncture, essential oils, nutritional support and more. The key here is to work with your body to unblock stagnant Qi, letting this life force energy flow to the pelvic area, assisting your body in healing itself.

Fibroids

Fibroids (also called leiomyomas or myomas) are noncancerous tumors that grow in the womb’s muscle layers. They can also occasionally grow outside of the womb as well. Discomfort from fibroids happens in about 30% of women by the age of 35 and can cause anything from painful or heavy periods to fertility problems to chronic pain.

Western medicine provides treatment solutions for fibroids like medication and a variety of surgical procedures. Fortunately, there are natural treatments available both to help treat fibroids and to assist in Western therapies. Acupuncture and other TCM methods can be used to adjust or increase Qi within the body – providing holistic hormone regulation and pain management. An additional benefit to utilizing holistic means in solving fibroids is that acupuncture and other assistance from TCM don’t carry the uncomfortable and alarming side effects caused by Western medicine.

Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts, including follicle cysts and corpus luteum cysts, are most commonly found and diagnosed after a pelvic exam is done by your doctor. While many go away naturally without any treatment or complications, cysts can also become a serious health concern. So, if you have had ovarian cysts or you are currently experiencing complications from ovarian cysts, Attunement Acupuncture is here to help.

There are many treatments for more serious ovarian cysts that have not gone away on their own. These include different types of surgery as well as hormonal treatments. In both cases, acupuncture, essential oils, and other Traditional Chinese Medicine methods can be used to help ease the symptoms of the cysts and assist in treatment. Freeing up blocked Qi with acupuncture, essential oils, and herbs can help your body regulate its hormone levels naturally. These methods can also contribute to reducing painful symptoms caused by ovarian cysts.

From the moment I walked in the door and met Danielle, I knew I would never need to look for an acupuncturist again. She has continued to prove this to be true, and I am more impressed and grateful with each session I have. Danielle is personable and warm, with a clear knowledge and understanding of the human body, pain, and the desire to get better that is within us! She really took the time to understand me and to listen. This was the foundation for openness and healing, and I'm so grateful!
