Women's Health



At Embrace Acupuncture, we like to work in with your existing health care practitioner for a more collaborative and holistic approach. You may be referred for tests & scans (where applicable) to rule out serious pathologies, diagnose deficiencies and accurately ascertain what your body needs to be at its healthiest.

Acupuncture has been used for to improve health including women’s health for over 2000 years. Scientific research is only just beginning to understand exactly how Acupuncture works.
One of the ways Acupuncture is thought to rebalance hormones is by regulating your body’s stress response and to regulate cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body. By not being in a stressed ‘fight or flight’ response mode as often, this then allows the body and its hormones to rebalance and keep working as it should. Acupuncture is often used for pain relief and can also improve blood flow to the ovaries and uterus allowing it to work more efficiently.

Every woman is different, if you would like to find out how we would address your unique situation, please contact us directly.
