Amenorrhea (Absence Of Menstruation) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for amenorrhea (absence of menstruation). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "amenorrhea (absence of menstruation)" is rarely designed with the resulting "amenorrhea (absence of menstruation)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "amenorrhea (absence of menstruation)", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - blood stagnation, kidney qi deficiency, liver blood stagnation, liver cold stagnation, liver qi stagnation, spleen qi deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.

When developing an acupuncture protocol a practitioner is very often focusing on the causal diagnoses in Chinese Medicine terms, not on the condition itself. A potential range of underlying factors and approaches for amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) are described in our acupuncture protocol page - "acupuncture for amenorrhea - treatment protocols " .

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
