Endometriosis is a condition where tissue that usually lines the inside of the uterus (endometrium) develops outside instead. Endometrial tissue in the uterus is designed to thicken, rupture and bleed with every menstrual cycle. The problem occurs when this tissue is located outside the uterus. Dislocated tissue gets trapped, having no way to exit the body.
The main symptoms of endometriosis is pelvic pain, most often related to the menstrual period. Although many women experience cramping during their menstrual cycle, women with endometriosis usually have far worse pain than the usual.
Common symptoms may include:
Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
Pain during or after sex
Pain during urination and bowl movement
Other symptoms like dizziness, nausea or bloating
The Raleigh Acupuncture endometriosis treatment can resolve this condition. It addresses the root cause of the problem, called Blood Stagnation. By improving blood circulation, endometrial tissue does not accumulate. Increased blood circulation also helps break up existing endometrial build-up.
We use specific points in the body to restore normal blood flow. These points strengthen your body’s ability to move blood through the vessels and within the organs. That’s one reason acupuncture brings long lasting results. It empowers your body to take care of itself.
How It Works
The Heart, Spleen and Liver are all important organs in Chinese medicine for maintaining healthy blood circulation. Each patient will require a slightly different focus for their treatment depending on their symptoms, history and constitution.
As we nourish your body’s blood circulating mechanism you will start to feel less pain. You will feel changes happening in your body during the course of your treatment. Cramping will ease, periods will be less painful, menstrual bleeding will decrease. For women seeking to get pregnant, your body will become more fertile. In other words, good blood circulation will make it much more likely that you will conceive.
For women struggling with dizziness, nausea or bloating, these symptoms will ease as well. Endometriosis and the accompanying pain associated with it taps your body’s resources. Resolving this pattern and stopping the pain will free up energy that can be used for better purposes. Good blood circulation to the head eases dizziness. Good blood circulation to the stomach eases nausea and bloating. Good blood circulation in general nourishes all of the organs, allowing for better energy throughout the day and better sleep during the night.

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.
