One set of points

Abdominal massage can help restore a healthy uterus and ovaries. I often teach self-massage to my fibroid patients during consultation. Our clinic also provides a herbal cream, A Wei Gao, which has a targeted effect for fibroid treatment when paired with self-massage. Self-massage is a good method to keep pelvic blood flow smooth and to relieve the blockage of Qi. It is a simple technique, and everybody is able to learn it. The technique involves rubbing and kneading on the abdomen to relieve tension spots. You can knead with your palms or fingers around the navel with both hands clockwise and counter-clockwise. Then pat your abdomen, lower back, sacrum, hips, and afterwards proceed to the quadriceps, hamstrings, inner and outer thighs, calves, and down to the ankles.

spleen deficiency or Spleen Damp - needs met?

The spleen also is thought to govern blood and hold blood inside its proper vessels. If the spleen is deficient, blood leaks from blood vessels and manifests as petechiae, melena, hematamesis, or menorrhagia. A deficient spleen will not be able to transform food fully into nutrients and energy, and the remaining liquids and solids will accumulate and form dampness.

According to TCM, the pathophysiology of uterine fibroids is as follows: Deficient spleen energy allows dampness to accumulate. The dampness stagnates and becomes phlegm, which congeals into a tumor in the uterus, known as a uterine fibroid or leiomyoma.3 Western medicine views the spleen markedly differently, and no connection between the spleen and leiomyomata is obvious. TCM can explain the presence of leiomyomata as the result of a deficient spleen. But can TCM treat fibroids?

I get acupuncture 2-3 times per week, sometimes getting electro-acupuncture on special points on my lower abdomen (called Zi Gong Xue) and/or on my legs (usually around Spleen 6) or even hands (Large Intestine 4). I was nervous the first time I had electro-acupuncture, but I promise it is nothing to be afraid of and if you are dealing with any type of pain you will be so glad you had it, since it is so wonderful at relieving pain.
