When the Blood Doesn’t Flow in the Lower Jiao: Acupuncture in the Treatment of Endometriosis

Language: English

Field: Acupuncture

This Lecture is suitable for All levels


Endometriosis affects 10-15 % of all women in reproductive age, and 70 % of women with chronic pelvic pain. There are many different theories concerning the reasons of this condition and Western Medicine doesn’t provide satisfactory treatment.

Chinese Medicine uses very precise diagnostic system, describing the state of the body underlying symptoms and medical conditions. During the lecture we will describe energetic anatomy of the female reproductive system, including Extraordinary Channels, and then discuss different Chinese syndromes resulting in endometriosis, their symptoms, pulse pictures and clinically effective acupuncture points.

Both lecturers are trained Western Medical Doctors practicing successfully Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for years, therefore the subject will be presented from both perspectives: Evidence Based clinical trials and ancient Chinese medical ideas.
