Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a group of physical and emotional symptoms linked to a woman’s menstrual cycle. PMS symptoms usually occur during the ten days prior to menses, and disappear either shortly before or after the start of menstrual flow.
How Acupuncture Helps
Acupuncture can address PMS symptoms naturally, without medication, by restoring balance and harmony, both physically and emotionally.
A practitioner may also recommend lifestyle changes such as eating a nourishing, organic, whole food diet, getting regular aerobic exercise and adequate sleep, enjoying warm baths, supplementing the diet with vitamins and herbs, and practicing deep relaxation exercises such as meditation, breathing exercises, or yoga.
