Acupuncture and Gynecological Health

Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us that specific meridian and organ systems, in this case the kidney, spleen and liver, are related to gynecological health. When one or more of these systems are affected, you may begin to experience symptoms that bring you discomfort before or during your period. Fertility issues can also be related to these organs. Your acupuncturist will work to find the underlying imbalances and determine what treatment plan will help your body regain its natural balance that you so desire.
