Women's health




 

When it comes to women’s health, acupuncture and Chinese medicine are among the most effective known complementary treatment options available. More and more women are looking for a natural option to help them regulate cycles, hormones, skin and stress, without the complications of synthetic hormones and drugs. 

 

The Chinese medicine doctors at Qi Medicine have extensive experience in dealing with a range of women’s health issues, from cycle regulation, fertility acupuncture,  pregnancy acupuncture and labour induction, menopausal changes, and skin issues. Our therapists will usually recommend a course of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, plus diet, lifestyle, and stress management advice. Treatment is a little more involved that just popping a pill, but this holistic approach will often give you better long term results than a quick fix.

 

We can work with your GP or other health care provider to ensure a safe, smooth treatment. Even chronic conditions such as endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, and chronic acne can have great outcomes when treated with acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

Treating PMS Menopausal transitions

Menopause is a unique transition time for women. In Chinese medicine, it is seen as a transformation of your energy from growing and nurturing a family, to finding your creative spirit and ultimate freedom in life. Unfortunately, we live in a society that champions youth and beauty over wisdom and freedom, so many women are often left feeling unfulfilled at this time in their lives. 

 

Qi Medicine believes in supporting a woman not only physically (treating hot flushes and insomnia) at this time, but also emotionally, working to help you find peace and fulfillment at this time. It can be a challenging time for many, so it is important to have as much support as possible.

 

Chinese medicine and acupuncture are unique in that they can support your emotional and spiritual wellbeing, whilst assisting to overcome physical challenges. Because we work only with your body’s own natural rhythm and hormonal fluctuations, treatment may even help you avoid long-term hormone replacement therapy.

 

The common approach taken with Qi Medicine includes herbs and acupuncture, along with diet and lifestyle advice. A course of treatment may help you feel like yourself again through menopause, and really unlock the fun and fulfillment waiting for you!
