How can acupuncture treat women’s health issues?

Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which centers on the idea that your body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected by pathways (meridians). 

Meridians create an energy flow (qi) through your body. Disruption of qi can cause disease or other concerns. By applying acupuncture to certain points, you can restore balance to your qi. 

During an acupuncture session, which may last up to 60 minutes, your practitioner penetrates your skin with thin, metallic needles. They may activate these needles through gentle hand movements or with electrical stimulation. 

You can expect minimal pain during the session, but you may feel pressure or an aching sensation during needle insertion. 

The needle insertion at targeted sites may affect pain processing in your central nervous system and muscles and increase blood flow to certain parts of your body. It can bring your energy flow back into balance.
