Acupuncture for women’s health

Whether you need to relieve nausea and sickness during pregnancy, balance your menstrual cycle, relieve period pains and mood swings or support your fertility and conception acupuncture offers women a safe, natural and effective solution.

I specialise in supporting women with acupuncture for the following conditions:

How acupuncture helps with endometriosis

Acupuncture is an ideal for managing the condition as it takes an holistic approach, focusing on the efficient flow of Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) throughout the body, particularly in relation to the reproductive and detoxification organs.

By examining a woman’s hormone balance, stress levels, detoxification pathways and levels of pain and inflammation, we can promote the relief of painful symptoms.

Here’s how York Traditional Acupuncture can help with endometriosis:

  • provide pain relief
  • reduce inflamation
  • promote relaxation
  • balance prostaglandins (the chemical messengers that influence pain and inflammation in the body)

Treat menopausal symptoms holistically

Menopause is a natural phase of life, not a disease. Here at York Traditional Acupuncture, we treat menopausal symptoms holistically.

Here’s how acupuncture can help treat your menopausal symptoms:

  • balancing the release of various female hormones and neurotransmitters such as Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Luteinizing Hormone and serotonin
  • relieving muscle tension and pain
  • rebalancing heat and the flow of Qi which can be altered by the fluctuations in hormone levels

Irregular or painful periods

Painful or irregular periods can cause a huge disruption in our daily lives. Luckily there’s no need to suffer anymore. Let acupuncture help you.

My acupuncture treatments provide a safe natural intervention for irregular and painful periods. By influencing the messages transmitted between the brain and reproductive organs, acupuncture can stimulate the release of serotonin and various pain-relieving endorphins.

In addition, by increasing nitric oxide production, the body encourages healthy blood flow and muscle relaxation. Acupuncture can also help decrease tension in the muscle walls of the womb.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovarian syndrome’s exact causes remains unknown because it can present with such a huge variety of symptoms. Some women have PCOS and may never know about it. Others suffer constantly from pain, absent periods, excess facial hair, poor blood sugar balance and weight gain.

Acupuncture is proven to relieve PCOS symptoms in many ways:

  • By regulating the production and release of hormones in the reproductive organs
  • Improving blood flow and circulation to the ovaries
  • Influencing cell receptor sites for hormones
  • Increasing insulin sensitivity and blood sugar balance to help with central weight gain and high blood sugar levels
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Encouraging relaxation and release of tension in the nervous system

What our patients are saying

When I came to Tiziana I had a long list of issues, profound grief after my marriage break up, hormonal issues that had been problematic for decades, as well as lower back and wrist injuries.

I didn’t expect these issues to be resolved so quickly, in a matter of a few sessions, I am so grateful to Tiziana, an inspirational and highly trained healer who knows her practice very well, she is the best choice in York for acupuncture.


I started seeing Tiziana to regulate my menstrual cycle after the birth of my baby. I expected it to take a few months because I’ve had acupuncture for it in the past and always had a long wait to see any results. However after just three sessions with Tiziana my period returned and I’m now on a 30-day-cycle that I’ve never had before in my life.

Happy Client

I started seeing Tiziana for acupuncture towards the end of last year. I was suffering with endometriosis and had also recently had a miscarriage. Tiziana was warm yet professional, with great empathy, and treated me holistically rather than just focusing on one thing.

Within one menstrual cycle the length of my period had reduced by 2 days and my pain was significantly reduced and manageable without painkillers for the first time ever. A scan the following month showed that a recurrent cyst on my ovary had shrunk to almost nothing.

She is professional, experienced, competent, kind and empathetic. I’m so glad to have found her and wouldn’t hesitate to see her again for treatment, for any health complaint.
