Menstrual Cramps

They’re Not Natural

Do you spend one or more days a month out of commission due to menstrual cramps? Has hormonal birth control given you no relief? Or have side effects of the pill, such as nausea and mood changes, led you to search for a new way to control cramps?

According to Chinese medicine, menstrual cramps are not a natural part of being a menstruating woman.

“She has provided pain relief from the cramps that I thought I was stuck with for life!”

For years I had debilitating cramps. The kind that no over-the-counter medication can relieve. Along with a myriad of other stress related issues and anxiety, my monthly cramps were always something I thought I just had to live with. About 2 years ago, I started seeing Katharine and things have changed dramatically. Not only has she helped my body with the the stress and tension I have from my work commute, but she has provided pain relief from the cramps that I thought I was stuck with for life! And to top it off, she always has helpful suggestions for things that I can do at home to keep myself feeling great! Katharine is the best!
