Acupuncture (for PMS)

Acupuncture can be an effective method for relieving menstrual cramps (PMS). Here is a simple guide on how you can use it.

📘 Understand the basics of acupuncture

Before you start acupuncture, it's important that you understand the basics. Acupuncture is a treatment method based on traditional Chinese medicine that works by inserting needles into specific points on the body. It is often used to relieve pain and treat various health problems.

📍 Learn the specific acupuncture points for PMS.

There are specific acupuncture points that can help with menstrual cramps. Some of the most important points are "Spleen 6" (SP6), "Liver 3" (LR3) and "Large Intestine 4" (LI4). You can find these points in your acupuncture book or online. They are usually found on the legs, feet and hands.

🧘‍♀️ Prepare for the acupuncture session

Before you start acupuncture, you should prepare yourself. This means that you are in a calm and relaxed environment, and that you have enough time to concentrate on the session. You should also make sure that you wear comfortable clothes that will allow you to easily reach the specific acupuncture points.

💉 Perform the acupuncture session

Now you are ready to start the acupuncture. Take an acupuncture needle and gently insert it into the specific acupuncture point. You should feel a slight pricking or pulling sensation, but it should not be painful. Leave the needle in the point for about 20 minutes and try to relax during this time.

🔄 Repeat sessions

To get the best results, you should do the acupuncture sessions regularly. The exact frequency depends on your individual condition, but in general it is recommended to do the sessions at least once a week.

📝 Record your experience

It can be helpful to keep a log of your acupuncture experience. Note how you feel before and after sessions and whether you notice any improvement in your symptoms. This can help you track progress and make any adjustments to your treatment.
