Menstruation (having a period) is a beautiful and natural process associated with the female body. While most women do experience having a period at some point in their lives, the way in which a woman experiences her period is very unique to her body. Some women regularly have their periods, with some being able to pinpoint the exact minute they will get it. Others have very irregular periods, sometimes going months without one.
Other varying factors women face include the pain associated with periods. Some women have shorter periods with minimal symptoms. Others may have more extended periods with more painful symptoms. For some, these painful symptoms and irregular cycles can be attributed to a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Many women struggle with trying to find ways to alleviate these symptoms and restore a natural rhythm to their bodies. Luckily, acupuncture has been shown to not only alleviate these symptoms but bring internal balance to affected women.
How Acupuncture Helps with Irregular Periods & PCOS
Most know acupuncture is the practice of having needles placed on strategic parts of the body. But what does this do?
This creates a catalyst – or a change – within the body. The internal catalyst caused by the placement of the needles releases a surge of endorphins, which is why so many feel relaxed and happy after their sessions. This can also help contribute to regulating menstruation cycles by mitigating stress, which can alter a woman's cycle and allow the body to decompress and fall back into its natural rhythm.
The increase in endorphins also significantly helps those suffering from mild to severe symptoms of PCOS and allows them to have more symptom-free days as the amount of acupuncture sessions increases.
Improving Blood Flow
Acupuncture also increases healthy blood flow not only in the body generally but also very specifically within the ovaries.
Healthy and rhythmic blood flow is fundamentally what is not only what is needed for a regular period, but it's also vital to finding hormonal balance within the body, which will also help relieve symptoms associated with PCOS. The increase in blood circulation overall helps ensure healthy and happy ovaries, which means less pain and more regularity in your daily life.
