Acupuncture for Period Pain

Period pain can be very debilitating and have a negative impact on your life. Period pain is not normal and can be treated naturally with Acupuncture and Lifestyle changes. Painful periods indicate that there is an imbalance somewhere in your body which needs to be corrected.

Acupuncture is an excellent way to correct these imbalances. It is best to deal with the issue directly instead of masking it by taking pain medication or going on the pill long term. Healing the imbalance now can help to prevent possible issues in the future, such as issues with fertility.

As well as receiving acupuncture there are also certain lifestyle changes you can make to help reduce pain .

  • Sanitation : If you use tampons or menstrual cups it is important to stop using them , and use menstrual pads instead. It is important to allow a free flow of blood out of the body during menstruation .
  • Heat : Applying heat (hot water bottle,castor oil pack) to the abdomen area encourages blood flow and helps to reduce pain.
  • Exercise : Ensuring that you get enough exercise , especially in the week before your period will encourage blood flow and help to reduce pain.
