Gynaecological Issues

From a Chinese medical perspective gynaecological issues are caused by excess or deficient patterns within the circulation of blood and fluids in the body.

Excess patterns often cause physical blockages which disrupt your physiological functions and deficiencies within your system cause the physiological functions to perform poorly.

These affect your health and may have an impact on fertility. With Chinese Medicine we are able to diagnose their underlying nature and once established use needles to treat the underlying pattern and stimulate the correct physiology. Helping to resolve these blockages and deficiencies will benefit your physical and mental condition and your fertility.


These include:

Menopausal symptoms
Menstrual disorders
Miscarriage (threatened & recurrent)
Ovulation disorders
Pelvic inflammatory disease
Tubal blockage

Where do the needles go?

We generally use a combination of ‘local’ and ‘distal’ points. ‘Local’ points are on your abdomen and are above and below your navel. ‘Distal’ points are on your arms and legs, generally below your elbow and knees.

I will always discuss what points I am going to use first and make sure that you feel comfortable.

How much treatment do I need?

At the initial consultation we go through your medical history and any notes or test results that you have, and combine these with a Chinese medical diagnosis to develop an individual treatment plan to suit you. Treatment is generally advised every week to two weeks, for as long as is necessary.
