It is fairly common for women who have been taking birth control pills to face certain difficulties when they decide to go off the pill. One of the problems is restarting the menstrual cycle. The medical term for this phenomena is Amenorrhea.
This can be very upsetting. But I have found my techniques can cure this problem, so there is no need for patients to suffer.
Let me give you a case history. My patient Mary (not her real name) is a 35-year-old female who had been using birth control pills for many years. She and her husband decided they wanted to start a family. Mary discontinued her birth control pills but her period did not return.
After consulting with her regular medical doctor Mary went on the drug Provera. Her Amenorrhea condition persisted. Mary heard from another patient that I had a method for treating Amenorrhea and came to see me for an evaluation. She was desperate.
Upon examination, I found her psoas muscle was extremely tight. I knew that a crucial nerve to the uterus passes through the psoas. As we have discussed here before, if the psoas muscle is pinched or spasmed, the result is reduced nerve energy.
This can cause painful menstrual cycles, prolonged menstrual bleeding and difficulty in getting pregnant. My experience has also taught me a tight psoas muscle can prevent menstruation in women who have been long time users of birth control pills. After I completed Mary’s examination, I explained too her that normally treatment would take four to six visits. She agreed to my treatment plan and we began.
After Mary’s second treatment her period began. She was very excited because she and her husband so much wanted to have a baby and she had about given up hope. She came in for two additional visits and has had a regular menstrual cycle since that time.
My treatment for Amenorrhea consisted of the following:

  • Relaxation to the psoas muscle through my exclusive Pressure Plus Motion Massage technique.
  • Adjustment to the spine.
  • Additional massage to the spine which helps relieve pressure on the nerves.
  • Home exercise program to keep the psoas from retightening.
If you suffer from Amenorrhea or have excessive menstrual bleeding or prolonged menstrual bleeding during your period, please call and schedule an appointment. Inmost cases we can help get you feeling better in very few visits.


Over 20 percent of Worker’s comp claims in this country are for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Most people think Carpal Tunnel is caused by problems in the wrist, This is not true.
Carpal Tunnel is caused by tension in the forearms. We have found that if a patient does specific Pressure Plus Motion exercises designed to relieve this forearm tension, the pain disappears.
If you or somebody you know suffers from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, please call the office for an appointment. Remember, your pain can be cured. Your suffering is optional.
