Acupuncture For PMS

We have known for years how great acupuncture is for treating the symptoms of Pre Menstrual Tension or Pre Menstrual Syndrome. Personally, I find this work to be hugely rewarding. Women suffering with PMT or PMS can be massively debilitated. Some lose time at work and relationships with loved ones and colleagues can become strained and challenging. As if that wasn’t enough, add to that the feeling that you are loosing your mind and have become someone that you don’t even recognise.


This recent Cochrane Study concluded that acupuncture and acupressure may improve both physical and psychological symptoms of PMS. 

When we work with this we tend to work over three menstrual cycles, with clients attending once a week for at least the first two cycles. But we all respond individually to acupuncture. Some people see a massive difference even within a few treatments. Recent feedback provided by a happy client was that she felt she had “gotten herself back” after just a month of acupuncture.
