Acupuncture for Women

Acupuncture has been used by women, for women for centuries and has been known to help with the following conditions:

Painful periods

These can be treated successfully by acupuncture, which considerably reduces the pain enabling you to lead a normal life.

Irregular periods

Acupuncture can be used to regulate the periods to a 28 day cycle. 

Fertility issues male and female

There are 2 ways acupuncture can help.  One with helping you to conceive, the other with helping an IVF treatment to ‘take’ successfully – though this treatment will need to be done the same day as the IVF, timing is everything!  It can also help the male with infertility issues.


Acupuncture can be safely used throughout pregnancy to keep you feeling tip top.  It can also be used to treat conditions where your usual medication may not be advised during pregnancy and can be a compliment to Pregnancy Massage.

Breech Baby

An acupuncture technique using moxa (a harmless herb used topically) can be used to turn a breech baby.

Inducing a baby

If the baby is late there is a simple alternative to Western medication.  Acupuncture points can be used on the hands and feet to stimulate the flow of energy, releasing the baby.  The treatment takes 30 minutes, and costs £25.

New mother treatment

In China, new mothers are given a moxa treatment (a harmless herb used topically) to nourish the mother after the birth.  In addition, acupuncture needles can be used (a total of 4) to strengthen the new mum.  This is particularly helpful to avoid the low mood some new mothers experience.  The treatment takes 30 minutes, and costs £25.


Lots of the symptoms of menopause can be eased by acupuncture.  A course of 4 to 6 treatments to start, then monthly or even bi-monthly thereafter to keep symptoms at bay, and to keep you feeling more like you!

Carefully placed needles cause little discomfort and bring about a sense of relaxation and wellbeing during and after an Acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective at treating a wide range of problems (see below) and is frequently recommended by doctors and body-workers alike. Book Now!
