Women, are you sick and tired of painful menstrual periods? Do you look with envy at friends and family who don’t seem to be bothered by their periods each month? You don’t have to hold a grudge against them any longer! Acupuncture eases painful periods, even the most challenging, painful period.
To begin our discuss how acupuncture eases painful periods, let’s briefly describe what an ideal menstrual period might look like (the one your friends seem to enjoy). Ideal is not something most women have, but it gives us a standard of comparison.
An ideal period should come every 28 to 32 days, last about 5 days, have 1 to 2 heavy flow days followed by 2 to 3 lighter days. On the heavy days the blood should be bright red, fire engine red. There might be some cramping leading up to the period through day 1, but it should not be severe cramping. Similarly, there could be some PMS symptoms like irritability, food cravings and bloating, but they should be mild, not severe.
Now let’s compare that to what most women who have painful periods deal with each month. Periods might come anywhere from 22 to 42 days, bleeding may last 7 to 10 days, with very heavy flow for more than 2 days. There may be severe cramping before and during the period, with dark maroon or purple colored blood and lots of clots. PMS may be severe, with irritability, uncomfortable bloating, cramping and breast tenderness, moodiness, depression and migraines.

What our Clients are Saying
I never had painful periods until I moved and started a new job. Very high stress. Every month I started getting migraine headaches and severe cramping. A friend suggested Raleigh Acupuncture and I got treated. It helped three things – reduced my stress, stopped the migraines and totally stopped the painful periods. They were all related and all triggered by my job stress. It was fascinating learning more about my body and how things like work really do take a toll. I’m trying to lead a more balanced life now. I’m continuing acupuncture until I get a less stressful job.
Periods are supposed to be painful, right? Guess what? THIS IS NOT TRUE! Why didn’t I know about acupuncture ten years ago? Do yourself a favor. Check these people out. Don’t be freaked out by the needles. They don’t even hurt. You don’t have to put up with pain every month!!
I suffered from painful periods my entire adult life. They started me on birth control pills as a teenager, and that helped until my mid-twenties. Then they got painful again, like ten out of ten pain with terrible cramping. Luckily my job is flexible, because I would miss two days each month from the pain. I found Raleigh Acupuncture on the internet and liked their website. During the initial visit they explained why my periods were so painful and how Chinese medicine addressed it. It made a lot of sense to me so I tried it. They told me it would take three cycles to regulate my period, but honestly I starting feeling better within a few weeks. I can honestly say that now my periods are not painful at all and my period is “normal”. I am so relieved and grateful. If you have painful periods you need to try acupuncture.
