Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provides a soothing, non-invasive treatment for endometriosis that provides healing and relief on several fronts.

In TCM, endometriosis is a condition of blood stasis. Custom herbal formulas using ingredients proven over centuries help to increase circulation and restore the flow of blood and Qi in the pelvic region. These formulas can also help to manage pain and to safely break up and disperse adhesions. Acupuncture also works to open pathways in the body to relieve stagnation. Acupuncture has proven to be an exceptional treatment for pain relief. Western medicine is starting to incorporate its use in dealing with chronic pain because patient satisfaction is so high and unlike prescription medicine, it is non-habit forming. The Wall Street Journal reports that “Neuroimaging studies show that [acupuncture] seems to calm areas of the brain that register pain and activate those involved in rest and recuperation.”

For this same reason, acupuncture is highly beneficial for stress relief. Stress is considered to be one of the causes or accelerators of endometriosis. TCM can heal this chronic issue by resolving stagnation, stress, and hormone imbalance all while reducing the difficult pain inherent in this condition.
