Acupuncture and the Menopause

acupuncture and the menopause

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that views menopause as a natural progression in a woman’s life, whereby we end our fertility phase and our body becomes less efficient in its natural rhythms of calming, cooling, moistening itself, which creates symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, irregular sleeping patterns, irritability and generally feeling less comfortable in our own skin.

An acupuncturist will look at your medical and emotional history and prescribe a treatment that aligns with your physical and emotional needs, especially if your symptoms are exacerbated by work, stress, grief, giving birth, caring for others and just general day to day life.

The acupuncture treatment itself is a very gentle, non-invasive therapy that consists of fine needles piercing the skin at certain areas of the body, to target energetic pressure points, to regulate your energy flow and unblock any obstructions or stagnant energy.

This works to alleviate the intensity and frequency of symptoms in the menopause, as long as it is supported by a lifestyle that promotes self-care, mindfulness and rebuilding energy reserves with a wholesome diet and regular exercise.
