Acupuncture for Women's Health Problems

In Chinese Medicine, it has long been accepted that hormonal imbalance problems such as menopause symptoms, menstrual problems and bladder problems to name a few, can be helped by acupuncture.

In more recent times, research has suggested potential positive effects in such conditions and has looked at how stimulation of points may affect nerves that supply organs such as the bladder, helping to normalise bladder tone; or create effects that may help with the hormonal regulation of problems such as hot flushes.

Similarly, there is good evidence to support acupuncture as a safe treatment in pregnancy for the relief of lower back and pelvic girdle pain and to relieve morning sickness in pregnancy.



At St Judes, we provide prescriptive exercises and advice for bladder problems and pregnancy and acupuncture gives us another tool to help, where appropriate, with conditions such as the over active bladder and problems of pregnancy.
