Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) Acupuncture Treatment
Many scientific studies have shown that acupuncture can help women relieve the symptoms of PMS. Acupuncture treatments have been known to relieve various symptoms such as nausea, cramps, headaches, and insomnia. Acupuncture increases the production of endorphins, which lower stress levels, to offset mood swings and relieve pain.
Cupping is a technique where special cups are placed on the skin to create suction. Cupping is used to treat pain by increasing blood flow to the area. This technique leaves hematomas on the skin, which look like bruises but are actually a collection of blood and toxins that move to the surface of the tissue. The lymphatic system can more easily drain the blood and toxins out when they are on the surface. These marks can last anywhere from a few days to a week.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
There are many Chinese medicines that can be used for treating PMS. They can also help treat various symptoms of PMS and irregular periods. Many Chinese herbs are used to balance hormone levels in the body and alleviate pain. Mood swings can also be addressed with herbs that alleviate depression and anxiety, which can be utilized to offset mood swings. The combination of herbs used for treating various conditions should be taken as directed by the doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
