Explore Endometriosis and Acupuncture at Bondi’s Eastern Therapies
Endometriosis is a common gynaecology problem that affects one in ten women. It is often the main reason behind infertility, making it a serious concern for women. The condition occurs when the endometrium (the inner uterine-lining tissue) develops outside the uterus rather than inside. These tissue deposits are called endometrial implants and often result in painful endometriosis symptoms.
As the location of the endometrial deposits differs between people, so will the variety and severity of the symptoms. Common symptoms include:
- painful periods
- chronic abdominal and lower back pain
Eastern Therapies understand the link between endometriosis, Chinese herbs and acupuncture, with our Bondi Junction clinic taking a traditional approach to alleviating the common endometriosis symptoms listed above.

The connection between endometriosis, Chinese medicine and acupuncture at Bondi’s Eastern Therapies
Whether you wish to try acupuncture for your endometriosis or Chinese herbs, our Bondi team will endeavour to create a tailored treatment plan for you.
Treatment often involves managing the pain, supporting the immune system (especially the gut health), balancing hormones and reducing oxidative stress. Some ways this can be done include introducing lifestyle recommendations to reduce inflammation such as nutritious organic foods, adjusting dietary intake or seeking alternative treatment strategies such as acupuncture or herbal medicine.
Acupuncture supports decreasing your body’s stress response to allow the body and its hormones to rebalance and keep working as it should. Acupuncture supports improve blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, allowing them to work more efficiently while easing pain. Once a diagnosis of endometriosis is made, our team will use a combination of therapies to provide relief.
