Women's Health

At my Acupuncture clinic, I specialise in addressing a variety of women’s health concerns through the ancient, yet scientifically validated, practice of Acupuncture. From perimenopause and menopause symptoms to gynaecological menstrual irregularities, pregnancy-related issues, and post-birth care, the treatments are tailored to support and enhance women’s health at every stage of life.

Perimenopause and Menopause Symptoms

Symptoms Treated:

– Hot flushes

– Night sweats

– Mood swings

– Insomnia

– Fatigue

– Weight gain

– Achy Joints/Musculoskeletal Pain and Inflammation

– Anxiety and depression

– Vaginal dryness

Treatment Approach:

Acupuncture helps to balance hormone levels, improve sleep, and reduce stress, thereby alleviating the common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Our treatments focus on harmonising the body’s energy flow, reducing inflammation, and promoting overall wellness. Evidence supports Acupuncture’s effectiveness in reducing the frequency and severity of hot flushes and other menopausal symptoms.

An Alternative to HRT

I have worked with several clients who are unable to take HRT due to their medical background. Some women have gone through cancer treatment causing them to go into early menopause or are at a high risk of breast cancer, for example. Acupuncture is an excellent alternative to HRT and I see fantastic results with these clients, helping them to manage hot flushes, palpitations and insomnia which are prevalent symptoms in these women.

Already taking HRT?

This does not matter. A degree-level trained Traditional Acupuncturist will have the knowledge of how to integrate their treatments with all medications, including HRT, and will ask for this information at the time of booking your first appointment.

Gynaecological and Menstrual Irregularities

Conditions Treated:

– Irregular periods

– Painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea)

– no periods (amenorrhea)

– Heavy bleeding (menorrhagia)

– Hormone related migraines

– Uterine Fibroids

– Endometriosis

– Stress and anxiety/mood swings

– hormonal imbalances

– Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

– Cysts

– Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Treatment Approach:

Acupuncture can regulate the menstrual cycle by improving blood flow to the reproductive organs, balancing hormones, and reducing pain. Research indicates that acupuncture is effective in alleviating menstrual pain and regulating cycles, offering a natural and non-invasive treatment option for women experiencing menstrual irregularities.

Pregnancy-Related Problems and Pre-Birth/Post-Birth Care

Conditions Treated:

– Morning sickness incl. Hyperemesis Gravidarum

– Lower back pain

– Sciatica

– Breech presentation

– Labour induction to prevent medical intervention

– Postpartum depression

– Lactation issues

Treatment Approach:

Acupuncture provides a safe and effective method for managing various pregnancy-related issues. During pregnancy, acupuncture can help alleviate nausea, reduce pain, and prepare the body for labour. For postpartum care, acupuncture supports recovery, promotes emotional well-being, and can help with lactation problems. Studies have shown that acupuncture can reduce the intensity of morning sickness and help turn breech babies with moxibustion. Additionally, Acupuncture has been demonstrated to aid in postpartum recovery, improving both physical and emotional health.

“I booked in with Tracey after lots of research into Acupuncture and natural ways to induce labour. I had an induction booked on my due date and really wanted to avoid medical intervention. Tracey was lovely, professional and very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed my Acupuncture sessions. My labour started naturally after my second session. I would highly recommend Tracey to anyone.”
“Highly recommend, Tracey is a brilliant Acupuncturist and I have benefitted so much from treatment. She is very professional as well as being extremely kind and caring”

Evidence-Based Research

Numerous studies have highlighted the efficacy of Acupuncture in women’s health. For instance:

– A study published in the journal “Menopause” found that Acupuncture significantly reduced hot flushes and improved sleep quality in menopausal women.

– Research in “The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology” demonstrated that Acupuncture effectively alleviates menstrual pain and improves cycle regularity.

– A systematic review in the “American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology” concluded that Acupuncture is beneficial for treating pregnancy-related issues such as nausea and pain and can support labour induction and postpartum recovery.
