Period Pain

How much period pain is too much? Do you dread your period each month?

There is a prevalent misconception that it is natural for your period to cause pain, a lack of energy, and fluctuations in digestive function. There’s a myth out there that it is normal to feel hostage to PMS. You don’t have to accept period pain as a normal part of life. All types of period pain discomfort are a result of chronic inflammation and a symptom of hormonal miscommunication.

Your period can be . . . uneventful.

Acupuncture works to soothe hormones, warm the uterus, decrease stress hormones, and quiet chronic inflammation so that your life isn’t disrupted each month.

After a series of acupuncture treatments, you won’t have worry about missing work or school. Your period will no longer cause anxiety, stabbing pain, bloating, or overwhelming emotional swings. Your period will arrive, and you’ll still feel energetic!
