I’ve lost track of how many times women come to my acupuncture clinic exhausted and exasperated because they are in the midst of weathering peri-menopausal or menopausal issues.
There have been high powered business executives experiencing such severe daytime hot flashes and sweating that their business meetings are derailed. There have been calm, cool heads of families who suddenly are not sleeping and suffering from anxiety which appears seemingly out of nowhere. Insomnia and mood related changes are just as common if not more so than the hot flash and night sweat ones.
The good news is that all of these issues are common and the other part of the good news is that acupuncture has been used for some 3,000-4,000 years to well address exactly these complaints.
Peri-menopausal or Menopausal complaints which I address:
- Dryness (vaginal, skin, hair, or nails)
- Digestion changes
- Hot flashes
- Hormone imbalance
- Night or daytime sweats
- Skin breakouts
- Weight gain
- Memory complaints
