Complementary Therapy

Although complementary treatments have not been proven scientifically, many women feel that they can help to control the symptoms of endometriosis.

Popular Treatments are:-

  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Hypnosis
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)


These therapies can be used in conjunction with your medical/surgical treatments to help you manage your symptoms. They will not cure or stop endometriosis forming. Your specialist nurse can provide more information during your consultation.

Many complementary therapists have self-regulating bodies through which you can find a qualified practitioner. Certain treatments involve the use of medicines which are not regulated, please ensure that you do not take anything that may interfere with any medication that has been prescribed for you.
