Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine treat PMS or Menstrual Problems safely and effectively!

Are you one of the women who suffers under:

  • Nervous tension & Fatigue
  • Breast Distension, Pain & Lumps
  • Abdominal Distension & Pain
  • Headache & Body Pain Diarrhea
  • Vomiting & Nausea
  • Constipation, Bloating
  • Nosebleed, Bloody Stools &/or Urine
  • Fever, Asthma or Recurrent Colds
  • Rashes & Acne
  • Changes in Appetite & Cravings????

According to Chinese medical theory there are very definite mechanisms accounting for each and every one of these premenstrual symptoms. For instance, premenstrual breast distention is usually due to stagnation within the liver and stomach channels, which connect with the breasts. While premenstrual acne is most often due to heat in the lungs which rule the skin.

But, there are effective treatments for each of these conditions. They may include acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine, starting whenever the signs and symptoms occur combined with dietary changes, exercise, and lifestyle modifications.

Typically the traditional Chinese medical course of treatments for PMS spans 3-4 menstrual cycles with the number of days each month requiring treatment, declining with each cycle. And the ultimate goal of this therapy is to teach the woman what foods to avoid and how to arrange her life so that these symptoms do not recur again. In addition using the theories and diagnostic methods of Chinese Medicine, I will be able to advise each woman on what vitamins and minerals to use to make her therapy even more effective.

Such treatment does not merely suppress symptoms but rebalances the entire body’s mechanism, thus resulting in vibrant good health and a renewed sense of poise and harmony. Using acupuncture and Chinese medicine, each of the major organs and bowels are brought into harmony as well as the woman’s Qi, blood, and body fluids.

And to make therapy even more convenient, many of the herbal formulas used to treat PMS and its related signs and symptoms are available as pills, powdered extracts, and tinctures.

PMS is real. It is not just your imagination.

Western medicine describes its mechanisms in terms of hormones, prostaglandins, and neurotransmitters. While all of these may be true, such biochemical descriptions do not enlighten and empower women. Although the Chinese concepts of Qi and blood, yin and yang, the five phases, and the twelve organs and bowels may appear primitive and unscientific, they nonetheless have proven their value in professional clinical practice for over 100 generations. Using these concepts, women are enlightened and empowered on a very practical and human level. No one can control their secretion of estradiol, but liver Qi stagnation can be remedied by exercise, relaxation, and the right acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Success Stories

After a car accident I had serious lower back pain and I couldn’t get any relief.  Lars  acupuncture treatment helped to relieve most of the pain in just a few visits.  I would highly recommend you see Lars if you are in pain!

– Mr. A. Bernhart, Victoria

I visited Lars twice, after 2 separate injuries. I had been very apprehensive to try acupuncture but I reached the point where nothing else was working. Lars is very gentle and explained everything. After each injury, one visit to Lars was all it took to eliminate the pain and get me moving again. Lars is a very talented healer and he’s definitely doing the work he’s meant to be doing.

I first visited Lars for acupuncture to help with my hot flashes. I was amazed with the rapid results.  Lars is a very caring and capable practitioner, whose dedication to his clients and their wellbeing is apparent in everything he does.  I highly recommend him.

I was really having problems with my immune system and I felt like I was constantly sick. I’ve never been someone to take medicine but being sick all the time was just not working for me. So I decided to try another type of medicine and that’s when Lars talked to me about Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Lars told me that acupuncture would help my immune system to get back to full strength and also help my energy flow to get moving, therefore it would make me feel a lot lighter and more awake.I decided to give a try. Now I know that not only does it help my immune system but it makes my body feel happy and I have a lot more energy to get me through the day.

I highly recommend that you try acupuncture with Lars Fenske, he really knows what he’s doing and he loves his job.

Ronski helped me to recover after I was hit by a van as a pedestrian and suffered major soft tissue damage to my back and ribcage, including significant bruising, pain and discomfort. He even came to my house to treat me initially as I could not drive to his office due to these injuries. I experienced virtually immediate relief of all my symptoms with each treatment which was quite impressive to say the least. Thanks in a large part to him I am expecting to make a speedy and full recovery.

As a naturopathic doctor for 17 years, I have had much opportunity to experience different kinds of body work and Ronski’s expertise in my opinion is second to none. I am very grateful for his healing help.
