Chinese Medicine Theory shows that there are some patterns of period cramps.
Clinically, the most frequent patterns are Qi stagnation, Blood stasis, and Cold-damp. Qi /Blood stagnation in lower abdominal area will cause the pain, Cold-Damp is one of the reason to cause Qi/Blood stagnation.
Treating period cramps with acupuncture, I would choose Ren and Sp Meridians’ acupuncture points, because Ren Meridian connects the uterus and ovaries and Sp Meridian can promote Qi and Blood circulation. Thus getting very good result.
