Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

The main feature of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (P.C.O.S.) is the appearance of multiple cysts on a woman’s ovaries. While usually small and completely benign in most cases, these cysts are often associated with hormonal imbalances that affect menstruation as well as overall health.

With acupuncture, laser acupuncture, chinese herbs, naturopathic advice and tuina massage we can help you to resolve symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome

Signs & Symptoms

Other frequent symptoms that our patients encounter include:

  • Irregular, painful or absent periods
  • Pelvic pain during and between periods
  • Insulin resistance, hypoglycemia
  • Sleep and mood disturbances
  • Physical changes: weight gain, increased hair growth or hair loss, acne
  • Infertility


The hormonal and metabolic disruptions in P.C.O.S. are often brought on by:

  • Genetic factors
  • An improper diet
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Unhealthy sleeping patterns
  • Endocrine disruptors in the environment

In our experience, severe stress is also often an important factor in the development of symptoms.
