Relieve Menstrual Symptoms with Traditional Chinese Medicine


Are you afraid to leave the house due to heavy menstrual bleeding?

Are you suffering from intense menstrual cramps every month?

Does PMS leave you irritated and miserable?

Menstrual irregularities and uncomfortable symptoms can be relieved with traditional Chinese medicine. If you are miserable every month because of breast tenderness, fatigue, irritability, headaches, cramping, acne, heavy menstrual bleeding, or irregular periods, we can help.

Traditional Chinese medicine can help alleviate

  • PMS, irritability, anger, depression -pelvic inflammatory disease
  • irregular periods
  • uterine bleeding
  • cramps
  • breast distension
  • lack of periods
  • menstrual headache
  • fatigue

Acupuncture has been proven to impact the functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, and the release of hormonal substances throughout the body. In this way, it helps regulate the menstrual cycle and reduces menstrual symptoms.

Factors such as digestion, sleep patterns, and other seemingly unrelated details can impact your body in invisible ways, and cause a decline in your menstrual health. Consequently, a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary insights and lifestyle modifications will be used to re-balance your body and regulate the menstrual cycle. Because traditional Chinese medicine nurtures the whole body, although your treatment plan will be customized to optimize your menstrual cycles, you will likely find that your overall health improves.

“No more headaches! – thanks to Michelle Hughes of Comox Valley Acupuncture. Michelle has done wonders, since starting treatments I am basically headache free, more relaxed and sleep better at night. Michelle has a wonderful calming presence and her treatments have been very effective. I highly recommend Michelle.”


Course of Treatment


Weekly acupuncture treatments are recommended, and personalized herbal formulae and dietary / lifestyle modifications may also be suggested.

It can take three months to regulate the menstrual cycle, but often a reduction in pain and menstrual symptoms can be felt much sooner.
