Regulation of Menstrual Cycle

Consistent acupuncture treatments can help regulate menstrual cycles and balance hormone levels for a healthier and more enjoyable period. Having a regimented cycle will help your body govern its own levels of hormones and allow for decreased menstrual cramping, healthy quantity of menstrual flow, balanced energy levels, enhanced fertility, and general wellness.

Fertility Support

Acupuncture can optimize fertility for both women and men, and help to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Research has proven that regular acupuncture before conception and during pregnancy improve success rates and numbers of healthy births.

IVF / IUI Optimization

Acupuncture in combination with IVF or IUI has been proven to improve outcomes and produce more successful pregnancies and healthy births through numerous research studies. For more information on IVF or IUI support treatments at Flow Acupuncture please click here.

Hormone Regulation

Acupuncture may affect the hypothalamus pituitary axis and reduce the release of the luteinizing hormone in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome.

Menopause Relief

The American Menopause Association recommends acupuncture for its ability to successfully reduce hot flashes, night sweating, insomnia, dryness (skin, eyes, vaginal) and mood regulation.

The use of moxibustion in combination with acupuncture treatment has been shown to gently encourage a natural repositioning in babies who are breech in the womb. Read more about this treatment here, and may be started as early as week 34 or 35 of pregnancy.
