Chinese Medicine perceives the menstrual cycle as something that allows women to have a healthy period, that is both comfortable and flowing. Recognising the uniqueness of each woman, the menstrual cycle is central to every aspect of health and is treated regardless of what health concern you present with. Each woman’s personalised cycle should aim to be regular and optimally occur between 26 – 35 days each month. The period should turn on and off like a dripping tap, aiming for 4 – 5 days of constant flow. No discomfort, irritation and no stopping and starting. The key reproductive hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, not only support your cycle and fertility, they are also important in mental health, anxiety, bone density, cholesterol regulation, cardiovascular health, skin health and more.
Treatments can help you in balancing your hormones and regulating your cycle to enhance your overall wellbeing and life experience. It can ease symptoms that may accompany your period such as breast tenderness, mood swings, scanty and excessive bleeds, irregular cycles, midcycle bleeding, headaches, cramping, and back pain.

How It Works
Chinese Medicine views the processes of the body as an energy system. Health and wellbeing rely on the smooth and dynamic flow of Qi (energy) through the body through a series of meridians/channels beneath the skin. Treatment aims to restore the smooth flow of Qi correcting imbalances such as deficiencies, stagnations, and excesses. It improves bodily functions and promotes the natural self-healing abilities of your body.
