Women's Health

We specialize in women’s health and fertility and are one of the most experienced, busiest, and most successful Acupuncture for Women’s Health Clinics in Queensland.

A woman’s body goes through many cycles in the course of a lifetime. From the onset of puberty, to pregnancy, and finally menopause, with years of menstruation in between, a woman’s body and hormones are in a constant state of change. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can restore balance at any stage of a woman’s life. TCM has been proven to have a positive effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, the body’s mechanism that is responsible for keeping the female reproductive system in balance.

Women’s health issues respond exceptionally well to TCM. Today, traditional protocols are combined with advances in Western medical science to maximize the success of treatments. I believe most gynecological conditions can be brought under control in three to six menstrual cycles.

Stress & Fertility: How Acupuncture Helps

Visit our specialist website, Fertility Brisbane for in-depth information on fertility treatments.

  • Acupuncture has been shown to relieve stress and anxiety.
  • Acupuncture releases endorphins and serotonin, which have a calming effect on the body. These chemicals decrease the physical symptoms of stress by:
  • Reducing heart rate
  • Lowering elevated blood pressure,
  • Relaxing the muscles
  • Acupuncture also improves blood circulation throughout the body, which oxygenates tissues and cycles out cortisol and other damaging chemicals
  • Most importantly, acupuncture has been shown to rebalance the sympathetic nervous system and the endocrine system, thereby regulating the reproductive hormones that stress negatively affects.
  • Women who are treated with acupuncture often report feelings of relaxation, calm and peacefulness and of being energised following treatment.
  • Since infertility and its treatment are associated with considerable stress and anxiety, there is significant benefit to be achieved from this part alone.
  • Furthermore, there are studies that have reported higher pregnancy rates from IVF when other types of stress reduction and anxiety relieving methods are employed.

NOTE ALSO: That NONE of the studies has shown any detrimental effects attributed to acupuncture, which could lead to a reduction in the success of the medical treatment of infertility by IVF.
