Women across the world dread that time of the month when, without missing a beat, they experience menstrual cramps and PMS. For some of them, this can be a debilitating experience unlike anything else. And oftentimes there doesn’t seem to be anything that can help them –– until they try acupuncture.
What is acupuncture
Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that consist of applying hair-like needles to the patient for the purpose of stimulating the muscle and surrounding tissue. Such stimulation has the benefit of increasing oxygen flow in the blood, which in turn can have a long list of benefits, including offering relief from menstrual cramps and PMS, but more on that later.
Debunking some myths
People have many misconceptions about menstrual cramps. For example, people often think the procedure is painful and unbearable, which is not true at all. In fact, many patients report experiencing a calming sensation unlike anything they’ve experienced before.
