Tired Of Period Pain?

Updated: Apr 10

Even more tired of being told it’s “normal”?


While 80% of people who menstruate will experience some associated pain at some point during their lifetime, symptoms that disrupt your ability to enjoy your life and engage in usual activities are NOT normal and should not be ignored.


Irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, large or numerous clots, debilitating cramps, nausea and vomiting, gut disturbances, intense fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, night sweats, hot flashes, insomnia or severe mood swings associated with your cycles are not “normal,” and can point to underlying issues such as hormone imbalances, gut dysbiosis, chronic inflammation, and other medical conditions. If you dread getting your period due to painful and debilitating symptoms, acupuncture and herbal medicine are here to help.


You don’t have to take my word for it! Over 20 years of medical research supports the use of acupuncture in relieving period cramps and other cycle-related symptoms including premenstrual syndrome and premenstrual dysphoric disorder, irregular periods, sleep and digestive disturbances, and more (PMID: 29879061, 29654840, 3540764, 24410911, 31341497, 24029029).


Often, treatment options for menstrual complaints are painkillers, antacids, hormonal birth control, and antidepressants. These options can make symptoms better temporarily, but do not address the underlying causes of disease and may cause unwanted side effects. Unfortunately, this approach does nothing to discover or heal the root causes of symptoms. Acupuncture and herbs offer powerful and safe remedies that work to both relieve your symptoms and address any underlying causes of disease.


I understand from personal experience how frustrating and invalidating it is to be told that your cycle-related symptoms are “normal” when they are disrupting your life, work, and relationships. After trying multiple treatment options for my own period pain (and dealing with the side effects), I found lasting relief and healing with acupuncture and herbal medicine. I am excited to share the powerful benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine with my patients.
