TCM and Women’s Health
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in addition to viewing people’s health in a holistic way, looks at women’s health seriously. It has a long history of treating women and their unique health issues effectively.
In all cultures, women not only have an increased awareness of their bodies and their health issues, but also they have a high tolerance for pain and discomfort. At times, this gets in the way of women seeking help for health issues. In addition, women are typically responsible for raising children and keeping the home. These time-consuming factors also get in the way of women’s health issues being treated adequately.
At Results Acupuncture & Healing Arts Center, Shifu Raymond Ahles is well-trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and its use in the treatment of women’s health issues. We use the most advanced acupuncture techniques and the best herbal formulas for women’s health.
TCM realizes women’s bodies are more complex than men’s. In addition to all men’s bodies do, women’s also are able to conceive and give birth. The menstrual cycle from first period to pregnancy to delivery to menopause is unique and complex. TCM sees this entire cycle as a series of stages in which women’s health can be affected greatly by the quality of care they receive. Because of this, TCM has developed effective healing and care techniques that use only natural, safe ingredients and methods to achieve the best balance between health and well-being at each of these stages.
The following women’s health issues have been and continue to be treated in a safe, natural, holistic way by Traditional Chinese Medicine:
- menstrual difficulties
- premenstrual tension and discomfort
- reproductive difficulties
- hormone imbalances
- mood disorders and stress
- weight problems
- skin and hair problems
- poor sleep
- general well-being
One general example of TCM and women’s health issues has to do with the complex reproductive system. When this system is healthy, pain and discomfort are minimal if present. However, if there is an imbalance, trouble follows. An adolescent not having a period or having excessive cramps, a young woman unable to conceive, women suffering from PMS or fibroids, and menopausal women experiencing hot flashes, mood swings, and general discomfort all can benefit from acupuncture and the re-establishing of balance in their overall health that comes with this treatment.
TCM is a treatment approach that is especially helpful for dealing with women’s health issues. Its soft approach and gentle treatment is perfect for helping women with their complex health issues. This natural approach to women’s health not only addresses their imbalances, but also their overall health and the balance needed internally for women’s health and wellness as a whole.
