An Australian study has reported that acupuncture can reduce period pain symptoms by at least 50% and these benefits may last up to a year.
We see these benefits in clinic working with women who have horrendous period pain. We usually advise working with these women for over three cycles although many women start to see a reduction in pain even after the first month. Acupuncture can offer relief in a more natural way than relying on pain killers, which often don’t touch the pain for some women anyway. And for those trying to conceive, reducing or eliminating a need for drugs such as ibuprofen, can be helpful, as these can have a delaying effect on fertility.
If you’re a woman whom struggles with period pain, call us today to see how we can help.
