Women's Health Q & A

Can Chinese medicine improve women’s health?

Chinese medicine offers women an alternative way to care for their health. Instead of pain medications and uncomfortable procedures, with Chinese medicine, you can enjoy health support via:

  • Acupuncture 
  • Herbal Chinese therapy 
  • Massage
  • Therapeutic nutrition counseling

Together or alone, these therapies and supports can transform women’s health.

Can traditional Chinese medicine increase fertility?

If you’re struggling to get pregnant, Chinese medicine may help you become more fertile. Typically, they work by balancing your whole body, thereby making your body, including your reproductive system, work better.

Some herbs, such as Tribulus terrestris, normalize irregular ovulation. Chinese herbal medicine can also support the success of a pregnancy.

How can acupuncture support women’s health?

Acupuncture offers women a sustainable, noninvasive, and nonchemical way to address a variety of women's health issues, supporting women during different periods of their lives. Examples include:


By encouraging circulation and releasing natural painkilling chemicals, acupuncture helps regulate your cycle and relieves PMS symptoms like cramps, headaches, and various aches and pains.

Menopause and perimenopause

Similarly, acupuncture, alone or with Chinese herbal therapy, can help relieve menopause and perimenopause symptoms, including hot flashes, anxiety, insomnia, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and heart palpitations.

Pregnancy and postpartum

During pregnancy, acupuncture can reduce morning sickness, lower back pain, and pelvic discomfort. After delivery, many women find that acupuncture lessens postpartum depression and strengthens their body as it heals and as the breasts produce milk.


Acupuncture can reduce wrinkles and fine lines and reduce facial puffiness associated with aging. It works because it stimulates the circulatory system and increases the blood flow to the face.

Acupuncture can also address issues that affect women more than men, such as:

Depression and anxiety

Acupuncture treatments can help depression, anxiety, and panic attacks by lowering blood pressure and reducing stress. It also helps reduce hormonal anxiety. Note that you should never stop taking your prescribed medications without consulting your physician first.


Acupuncture can reduce the pain of fibromyalgia by stimulating the release of “feel good” chemicals and painkilling chemicals in the brain.

Acupuncture can also help with pain from fibroids and endometriosis.
