Acupuncture for Chronic Pelvic Pain in Women
- One of the first of its kind, this authoritative and extensive pain management resource bridges the divide between Chinese medicine acupuncture and western medical acupuncture in the treatment of chronic pelvic pain in women. It is estimated that one in seven women suffer from chronic pelvic pain which is often associated with various gynaecological conditions including endometriosis and pelvic spasms. Due to unsatisfactory treatment options, patients are often forced to rely on strong, sometimes ineffective pain medication and can consequently suffer from anxiety and depression. This comprehensive and timely book addresses the need for a non-drug, holistic approach for the immediate reduction of pain, and will cover the healing power of the practitioner-patient relationship, the use of the Alchemical Five Element psycho-spiritual approach, the Balance Method, trigger point deactivation and scalp acupuncture. Ooi Thye Chong focusses on a person-centred approach in this invaluable resource, allowing patients to feel empowered via skills that provide avenues into effective, long-term self-care.
