Women’s Health Problems
Non-pharmacological, Non-Surgical Remedies Available for Painful Menstrual Periods, Annoying Menopause, Postpartum Pain and Incontinence
A systematic review paper published on the International Journal of Women’s Health in 2014 found that “There is preliminary data indicating acupuncture may improve menstrual health and coping for women experiencing delays falling pregnant. There is experimental data showing that acupuncture can influence female reproductive functioning, although the actual mechanisms involved are not yet clarified.”
At our clinic, we use acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine to help women who have to rely on painkillers to survivie painful menstrual periods or hormone to cope with menopause, but suffer from the distracting or even harmful side effects. Combining with physical therapy, we have helped many women who struggled with back or pelvic pain, or organ prolapse after giving birth and even those who had problem control their bladder.
Dr. Weiwei Guan’s great-grandfather, Dr. Qingxin Guan (1864-1939), the second generation Dr. Guan, was an expert treating women’s health issues using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Equipped with the knowledge accumulated in her family over more than 100 years since then and the modern physical therapy techniques, Weiwei has an unique set of wonderful tools to help women to return to normal life.
