Alban Acupuncture is one of the few acupuncture practices that has experience and expertise in treating pelvic conditions. Partnering with each patient, we work with you to create an individualized treatment plan of acupuncture, tui na massage, cupping, herbal medicine, and essential oils. In over 15 years of practice, I have helped many patients with pelvic conditions.
Acupuncture for Conditions of the Pelvis
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine provide a holistic approach to healing and are effective treatments to relieve the pain and discomfort, improve sexual function, and decrease urinary problems. Additionally, Acupuncture is a natural treatment with very few side effects.
Chinese medicine’s is over 2000 years old and has a long history of treating pelvic issues. Traditional Chinese Medicine has a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment, identifying specific imbalances in the body and using acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and acupressure to correct them.
Treating the root
We will consider symptoms of pain, urinary changes, sexual dysfunction, as well as digestion, energy, sleep are all factored into identifying the cause of the issues. Correcting the imbalance does not just treat the symptoms or mask the condition, but rather corrects the root of the problem by encouraging self-healing of the body.
We say that acupuncture helps to correct the underlying imbalance in the body leading to long term improvement. Modern research has shown that acupuncture reduces pain and inflammation through regulating neural pain pathways, stimulating the release of natural pain relievers in the body, such as opioids, as well as regulating pain relieving opioid receptors. Many studies have also shown acupuncture to have a anti-inflammatory effect, reducing the circulating inflammatory hormones in the blood.
