Community Acupuncture for Women
The benefit of acupuncture for women
Acupuncture can help significantly in maintaining a good quality of life. Many women cannot always find a solution for their needs in conventional medicine and are turning to complementary medicine such as acupuncture for support.
Acupuncture is one of the most researched complementary medicine and can help vulvodynia and vaginal pain, menstruation issues such as painful menstruation, various physical & mental symptoms before menstruation (PMS), endometriosis, urinary bladder pain and recurrent infections, emotional wellness, digestion problems, insomnia, infertility, pregnancy pains, postpartum depression and so much more.
Acupuncture is a safe ancient technique for therapeutic or preventive purposes by inserting thin disposable needles through the skin at the selected acupuncture points scientifically acknowledged as effective for chronic pain.
Orit's focus with community acupuncture
Orit has been focusing on women’s health since graduating from the Chinese medicine program in Israel and China in 2004.
3 years later Orit's started to focus specifically on treating women with chronic vulvar and vaginal pain. The pain can be any unpleasant feeling (burning, itching, stinging, stabbing) in the opening of the vagina, in the labia, the clitoral hood or any other part of the vulva or the vagina. In most cases of vulvar pain, it is called vestibulodynia and arises only with direct contact such as insertion of a tampon, during or after sexual intercourse, cycling, sitting for too long, wearing tight pants or jeans, etc. In other cases, the pain shows spontaneously without contact.
In Orit's 16 years of experience in the treatment of vulvodynia, Orit saw that the healing process is faster with twice weekly acupuncture treatments. Since most patients can’t afford it, she decided to embrace the beautiful concept of community acupuncture to reduce the costs of the treatment for people with chronic vulvar and vaginal pain.
How does it work?
The acupuncture treatments will be in a community set-up with max 4 patients at the same time. The selected acupuncture points are NOT intimate (therefore no need to take off your pants and/or underwear) located below your knees and elbows, on your scalp and sometimes around your belly button.
