Acupuncture for Chronic Pelvic Pain in Women

  • 2023, 224 pages


Delivery time: ca. 5 - 10 Tage/days


Bridging the gap between Chinese medicine acupuncture and often unsatisfactory biomedical treatments, this authoritative and comprehensive work on pain management is one of the first of its kind. Chronic pelvic pain, often associated with various gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis and pelvic cramps, is estimated to affect one in seven women. Anxiety, depression and poor sleep quality also affect a significant number of these women. This comprehensive and timely book addresses the need for a drug-free, holistic method of immediate pain relief using Balance Method acupuncture, trigger point deactivation and the psycho-emotional perspective of the alchemical Five Element Method to treat anxiety and depression. Dr Chong focuses on a person-centred approach in this invaluable work, offering useful and effective tools for self-care, whether one is a practitioner or a patient.
