Experienced practitioners with a holistic approach to women's health from endometriosis, fertility and IVF support, pregnancy care, to menopause and hormonal balance.
Gynaecological conditions are viewed as an integral part of the entire body's function in Chinese Medicine. It is believed that a regular, painless menstrual cycle is a reflection of a woman’s overall health – a period with no bloating, mood swings or other symptoms is deemed to be ideal in TCM.
We aim to regulate the menstrual cycle and balance hormone levels, reduce stress and restore health and vitality. This can benefit a wide range of women’s issues from period pain, PMS, hormonal acne or migraines, and menopausal symptoms, to Western-diagnosed conditions including fibroids, endometriosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Being in good health before conception results in a healthier pregnancy and healthy baby, and so spending a few months preparing your body is recommended. Regulating the menstrual cycle and preparing the endometrial lining of the uterus (important for implantation and nourishment of the fetus), promoting ovulation and egg quality, balancing fertility hormones, and reducing stress are ways in which you can optimise your fertility naturally.
We continue to support many women through early pregnancy, and in preparation for labour, as well as in the post-natal period. Because it addresses the individual person and their particular pattern of symptoms, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture may assist your health in many ways, even in complex or chronic situations.
