Women have the unique experience of menarche, menses, maybe childbirth and menopause. We grow and change as we move through each of these transitions. Women are ruled by the Blood in Chinese medicine. All of these cycles we go through are dominated by our blood and our hormones intricately linked together. Sometimes the rhythm is lost, or out of tune and this is where regular Acupuncture can help. During any of these time periods.
