Chinese medicine, which has treated health problems specific to women for literally thousands of years, has a sophisticated understanding of the natural rhythm of the female reproductive system and how this interacts with the rest of her being. Both the regular monthly cycle, and the gradual cessation of this cycle during the menopause, are seen as being in harmony with the gentle rhythms of the natural world.
Problems such as period pain, pre-menstrual syndrome, menopausal syndrome etc. are seen as imbalances within or interruptions to this harmony. Treatment, rather than simply suppressing the problem, aims to restore that harmony so that a woman moves smoothly through the months and years just as the seasons slowly change or as the moon waxes and wanes.
