Womens Health

TCM has some unique advantages when treating women’s issues. Our ability to recognize the pattern of disharmony (through tongue, pulse, palpation & questioning) directs us to correct imbalances. The menstrual cycle is governed by the ‘liver’ in TCM, and acupuncture is extremely effective in regulating the liver qi, often resulting in improved mood, less PMT symptoms, regular pain-free periods. More complex issues such as peri-menopausal hot flushes, and the symptoms of Endometriosis or PCOS also respond well to Chinese Medicine.

Fertility

Many health practitioners may recommend acupuncture as an adjunct treatment that may assist with fertility including IVF treatment. There is continuing research about how acupuncture can assist with the effectiveness of IVF treatment and you should consult your treating practitioner/s about how acupuncture may be able to help you. Allowing 3 months of preparation time is important. If you’ve decided to undergo IVF, Acupuncture is used to naturally assist in a variety of ways. It can help improve blood flow to the uterus, and balance emotions caused by the hormones, and the process of IVF. Acupuncture points are used to calm or stimulate and energise the body in a variety of ways.

Pregnancy

Helping you with symptoms that may arise such as nausea and vomiting, fatigue, reflux and back & hip pain are all part of treatment during pregnancy. Keeping your immunity strong so you avoid colds and flu is preferable for many women who seek acupuncture.

Preparation for labour includes ensuring energy levels and overall function of the body are optimised within the bounds of what acupuncture treatment can offer. The idea is, that in balance, the body is more likely to do what it is designed to do, naturally. Any niggling symptoms will be addressed so the woman feels relaxed, happy, and ready for the impending birth.

Acupuncture During Labour: Kali may be available to attend a labouring mother if needed. Times when this could be helpful are for pain relief, improving energy levels and resilience, and as an extra support person.

*For acupuncture during labour, call out fee is $100, then $50 per hour thereafter

Feminine Embodiment

Kali Foster also shares mind-body approaches to healing such as body meditations, sounding and breathing exercises. She has years of experience teaching yoga, including women’s tantra yoga, and Somatic Experiencing (body-oriented trauma therapy). These techniques can be stand-alone sessions or combined with acupuncture to achieve deeper states of connection with self and relaxation.
