Natural menopause typically occurs in women between the ages of 45-56. However, perimenopause symptoms can begin years before that, sometimes when a woman is in her 30s. While menopause is a natural part of a woman's reproductive cycle, it can bring much pain and discomfort.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are great natural ways you can control symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause, without hormone replacement therapy.
You don't need to suffer through menopause, we can help!
Acupuncture Can Improve Menopause Symptoms
Balance Your Hormones With Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been shown to significantly reduce hot flashes and other menopause-related symptoms, and improve your quality of life!
As your body approaches menopause, your ovaries produce less estrogen, and your periods become irregular or non-existent. This fluctuation of hormones is what causes night sweats and other common perimenopause symptoms.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help balance your hormones, which will make your menopausal symptoms less severe. Studies show that along with limiting the severity and frequency of your symptoms, acupuncture can also help you combat the side effects of a slowing metabolism, and even increase your libido!
Acupuncture Improves Mental Health
Many women going through menopause or perimenopause, also struggle with mental health. Estrogen loss, which is natural in menopause, relates to the loss of the hormone serotonin. Serotonin is an emotional regulator and mood booster. Women going through menopause are a greater risk for mental health conditions like anxiety, stress, and depression. Acupuncture can help with those symptoms as well.
With acupuncture, we can pinpoint specific areas in your body to stimulate blood flow, balance your energy and overall health. This triggers your body’s natural ability to produce painkilling chemicals and stimulates the part of the brain that controls your emotions, stress, and anxiety.

During your first consultation, we will also address diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes that can impact your overall health as well. Together we can help you enjoy the next stages of your life in a way you didn't know was possible.
