acupuncture for menopause

Menopause is a natural transition that should occur as easily as when menstruation began. Unfortunately, due to external environmental issues or years of adrenal fatigue the transition can be far from smooth. Hormonal balance is as necessary when the estrogen is waning as when it fluctuates throughout more fertile years.

Acupuncture treatments manage symptoms like insomnia, hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. Once hormonal balance has been reestablished treatments occur on an as needed basis. Because menopause is a period of time these simple maintenance treatments help with hormonal fluctuations as they occur. The goal is to give your body the strength it needs to maneuver and your mind a peaceful space to accomplish the work. Herbal formulas are reliable to help manage symptoms without hormone replacement. Herbs nourish on a deep essence level, rather then masking symptoms they create an environment that allows your body to work through them.
