Lei Chic Hustle Aunt Flo

Lei Chic (Nov 25, 2008)

Yes, Aunt Flo is here and she’s, well, cramping your style.

Lucky for you, Kane’ohe acupuncturist Fang Cai can poke and prod your pain using a Japanese take on the old-school Chinese practice.

The Kiiko Matsumoto style combines Japanese acupuncture methods with western medicine. Cai’s the only practitioner of this style of acupuncture on Oahu, and she’s so good, other acupuncturists go toher for treatments and training.

Better still, she specializes in all things female - from fertility to PMS to endometriosis. Her method relies on plpatation, which means she figures out what ails you by pressing parts of the body with her hands. And where her hands do the walking, the pins do the talking. Cai says patients can feel relief from menstrual cramps and other women’s curses by the time they leave her office. Now that’s some instant gratfication.

So you can stop saying Pardon My Sobbing all week.
