Acupuncture and menopause
Most women experience multiple symptoms during menopause that can severely impact the quality life. Symptoms may include:
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- anxiety and irritability
- back and neck pain
- mood swings
- and more…..
These symptoms are a result of the hormonal changes that occur in the body. It is as if the thermostat in the body needs correcting.
This is where acupuncture comes in
Acupuncture has been shown to be successful at reducing and often eliminating many of the symptoms. Acupuncture needles (which are painless in my practice,) are placed at certain strategic points along the body. Most people find the process extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. Most women need a few treatments and then follow up monthly or quarterly during the year depending upon the severity of the symptoms.
The quality of life can be restored safely and effectively during menopause and it can become the best time of your life!
