Acupuncture and Women’s Health

By Published On: March 17, 2016Categories: Acupuncture, Blog, Women's Health

When it comes to health issues, how we experience them is a result of both our physical health and mental state of being. Fortunately, that means that a great deal of the threats to women’s health are preventable. It is never possible to fully prevent health issues, but by taking small steps, you can make yourself happier and healthier.

At Red Leaf Wellness, we offer acupuncture to help you benefit from the empowering
and healing capabilities of this ancient tradition. Here are just a few of the things we can help you with that relate specifically to women’s health.

Acupuncture for pregnancy

Pregnancy is one of the greatest things that women can experience in life. However, many women struggle with the side effects and stress that it puts on their bodies. We offer soothing acupuncture treatments to help women deal with some of the common difficulties experienced during their pregnancies, a few of which are:

  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Morning sickness
  • Sleep issues

Acupuncture for menopause

Menopause can be a difficult time in a woman’s life, as it is often fraught with issues that take away from the quality of everyday life. Acupuncture can help relieve some of the most severe menopausal symptoms. In fact, a recent scientific study concluded that acupuncture reduced hot flash frequency and severity, decreased other menopause-related symptoms, and improved overall well-being. If you are suffering from symptoms such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Dry Skin
  • Decreased libido

Our clinic in Edmonton can help you take your life back.

Acupuncture for cardiovascular health

Heart disease may be more prevalent in men, but it isn’t a male-only disease. Heart disease is responsible for nearly one third of deaths in women. By undergoing our specialized acupuncture treatments along with living a heart-healthy lifestyle, you can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. Our treatments help improve blood flow, overall body health and state of mind, which in turn reduce the some of the biggest risk factors for heart disease.

Women’s health is one of our main focuses here at Red Leaf Wellness, and we want you to know that traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture – when integrated with a healthy lifestyle – can greatly reduce risk factors, the severity of symptoms, and improve overall quality of life for women.
