Menopausal Symptom Relief
Menopause refers to the time in a woman’s life where her body undergoes changes that mark the end of her reproductive period.
Symptoms of Menopause often include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Pain during intercourse due to vaginal dryness
- Increased anxiety
- Need to urinate more frequently
- Mood Swings
- Hair Loss
- Difficulty concentrating/Memory lapses
- Weight Gain
- Problems Sleeping
Traditional Chinese Medicine is extremely helpful when it comes to dealing with menopause and the energetic changes occurring in the body. Acupuncture in particular has been practiced to aid with reproductive changes for thousands of years and current studies are proving its effectiveness.
Because acupuncture works to restore a healthy energy balance to the body and mind, it has positive effects for the treatment of both the emotional and physical effects of menopause.
Recent studies have been conclusive in finding that traditional Chinese medicine reduces the frequency and severity of hot flashes and is extremely effective in treating insomnia and restlessness associated with menopause.
Often times menopause can be a very trying time for women. For women who are experiencing great anxiety and/or depressive symptoms related to menopause, psychotherapy may be a helpful option to aid in coping with the changes.
