Acupuncture for Women’s Health

Acupuncture has long been a key player in women's health, providing natural relief for conditions such as hormonal imbalances, menstrual disorders, infertility, and menopause. This technique offers a safe and effective way to support women through every stage of life. 

With its gentle approach, acupuncture helps you manage discomfort and regain balance, enabling you to 'get back on your field' with renewed strength!

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the strategic insertion of whisper-thin needles into specific points of the body to enhance overall health and address specific wellness concerns. This technique is particularly effective in improving circulation and stimulating the nervous system, making it a valuable method for women’s health issues.

Research supports the use of acupuncture as a modern approach to managing and improving various health conditions. This method is also tailored to individual needs, providing a personalized path to restoring well-being.

Acupuncture is recognized by leading health organizations, including Johns Hopkins University, as a beneficial treatment with minimal side effects. For more detailed information on how acupuncture works, click the link below.

How Acupuncture Supports Women’s Health

When Western medicine fails to deliver the desired results, many women turn to acupuncture for a more holistic and personalized approach to health care. Here is an overview of different ways in which acupuncture can support women’s health:

Menstrual Cramps

For women grappling with painful periods, turning to acupuncture may be a game-changer. This treatment eases discomfort by relaxing muscles, enhancing blood circulation, and promoting the release of endorphins—nature's painkillers. 

Beyond relieving cramps, mood swings, and bloating, acupuncture can also contribute to hormonal balance, helping to regulate menstrual cycles.


Embracing acupuncture during pregnancy can offer a natural pathway to comfort and well-being for expecting mothers, especially when medications are less desirable. This technique has been shown to ease common pregnancy-related discomforts like back pain, pelvic pain, morning sickness, and swelling. 

Moreover, it may also alleviate nausea by targeting specific pressure points, such as Pericardium 6 (P6) on the wrist, providing relief through the body's own energy pathways.


Acupuncture offers a supportive hand to women navigating the challenges of perimenopause and menopause, effectively easing symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and sleep disturbances. 

Highlighted by research, including a study from the University of Denmark, acupuncture not only lessens these discomforts but does so safely and affordably, presenting a natural alternative to hormone therapies and medications commonly used during this transition.


For women experiencing fertility challenges, acupuncture emerges as a nurturing support, enhancing their journey toward conception. By potentially improving blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, it can aid in egg development, implantation, and ultimately, conception. 

Acupuncture is also known to alleviate side effects of fertility treatments, like bloating and nausea, while promoting relaxation. Research has also suggested that, when paired with IVF, acupuncture may increase pregnancy rates if used on the day of the procedure.

Acupuncture could be your secret to a more youthful glow! By gently stimulating facial points, it boosts collagen and elastin production, helping to smooth out fine lines and improve skin tone for a firmer, more even complexion. 

Plus, its role in managing stress means it also addresses one of the culprits behind aging skin, offering a holistic approach to maintaining your skin's health and vitality.

Stress and Mental Health Conditions

Acupuncture offers a natural alternative for women navigating the challenges of stress, anxiety, and depression, conditions they're statistically more prone to face. By helping to harmonize the body's energy, acupuncture not only elevates mood but can also improve emotional regulation.

This technique provides a supportive and gentle approach to improving mental well-being, tailored to the unique pressures women may face, such as hormonal changes and environmental factors.

Is acupuncture safe during pregnancy?

Absolutely! Acupuncture is considered safe and beneficial during pregnancy when performed by a licensed practitioner. It can alleviate common pregnancy-related symptoms such as nausea, back pain, and stress, enhancing comfort and well-being. However, it's important to consult with your healthcare provider and acupuncturist about your specific situation.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Most people find cosmetic acupuncture to be a relatively comfortable experience. The needles used are extremely thin, causing minimal sensation upon insertion. Some might feel a slight tingling or warmth, which is a sign of the energy flow being activated, but it's generally not painful.

How long does an acupuncture session last?

The total visit time is 30 minutes or less. Acupuncture treatments are 20 minutes. First-time patients need extra time to fill out patient forms.

Is insurance required?

Our sessions and membership plans are very affordable so insurance isn't required. HSA and FSA plans are accepted.

How can acupuncture benefit women's health specifically?

Acupuncture offers a range of benefits tailored to women's health by addressing hormonal imbalances, menstrual discomfort, fertility issues, and symptoms associated with menopause. By stimulating specific points on the body, it helps regulate hormonal activity, ease pain, and improve overall well-being, making it a holistic approach to managing women's health concerns.

Do I need an appointment?

Appointments are highly encouraged to secure a preferred time. Check the clinic nearest you for walk-in availability.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects after treatment are uncommon, with most people leaving our clinics feeling deeply relaxed.

Some patients may experience mild disorientation, which typically resolves with a brief rest. We recommend eating a small meal before the session to prevent feelings of dizziness or tiredness afterward.

As a patient, what can I do to make my treatment more effective?

To make your treatment as effective as possible, consider these tips:

  • Complete patient forms online before your appointment to save time.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to allow your licensed acupuncturist easy access to acupuncture points.
  • Arrive at least 5 minutes early to settle in, choose your tea, and silence your phone.
  • Openly share your wellness concerns and goals with your acupuncturist.
  • Relax during your session; it's perfectly fine to fall asleep!
  • Take your acupuncturist's lifestyle advice seriously and incorporate it into your daily routine.
  • Remember, acupuncture benefits are cumulative and optimal results require time and consistency!
