by Anna Totzke, Registered Acupuncturist

Most women at some point during their lives struggle with Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS). The symptoms usually appear around 7-10 before the menstrual period is due and disappear when the period arrives. Some women have mild symptoms that they barely notice while others feel a huge change that can have a negative impact during that phase of the menstrual cycle.

PMS Symptoms vary from:

Breast tenderness/swelling

Mood changes – anger, frustration, weepiness, Anxiety, Depression

Bloating

Food cravings/Increase in appetite

Cramping

Headaches

Fatigue

Muscle stiffness/pain

PMS is a sign that your body’s energy is out of balance. Acupuncture can help bring the body back into balance and can relieve PMS symptoms. Acupuncture also helps with stress, and calming your mind.
