TCM has been treating many conditions of women over the thousands of years, and Huangdi neijing –the yellow emperor’s inner cannon- written around 200 BC, already explained the female anatomy, physiology, diagnosis and the treatment of the menstrual symptoms and the pregnancy related illnesses.

The ancient Chinese physicians already knew the women’s body and physiology are different and also they have different diseases, which need to be treated accordingly. Since the time of Neijing, there have been so many books published, and the specific treatments for women diseases were practiced and studied.

21 century TCM doctors, however, do not treat women’s health issues the same way as the ancient doctors did, the medical language has changed with the development and integration of Western medicine and also now with many studies and researches of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine and the herbal formulas, we know more about how acupuncture works, how acupuncture helps women’s health and what kinds conditions have been more effectively treated. Nonetheless, there are many phenomena unexplainable with the modern scientific and medical methods, which will hopefully be able to be proven scientifically in the near future.

Fertility, PCOS, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, menopausal symptoms,irregular periods, abnormal bleeding, and other menstruation related issues.

Women of all ages can benefit from acupuncture. For women just beginning to menstruate, acupuncture can help relieve cramps and PMS. With acupuncture treatment the menstrual cycle can be comfortable and regular so that it won't interfere with normal activities. PMS symptoms usually begin to disappear quickly with acupuncture treatment.

Chronic menstrual problems respond well to more long term care. Acupuncture combined with herbal medicine restrains heavy bleeding associated with fibroids and endometriosis and relieves pain.

For women who are trying to become pregnant, acupuncture sometimes helps solve problems of infertility. After childbirth, acupuncture and herbal medicine are very helpful in restoring and replenishing the new mother's energy.

For women in menopause, hot flashes (power surges) and night sweats can be greatly reduced to make this time of transition much more comfortable. Treatment focuses on stopping excessive sweating and restoring restfulness.
