Menopause usually affects women between the ages of 48 to 55. Menopause is not a disease, but is a normal physiological transition in a woman’s life from a reproductive stage to a non-reproductive stage. The main problems a woman is likely to experience with varying degrees of severity during menopause are: headaches, tiredness, lethargy, irritability, anxiety, nervousness, depression, insomnia, inability to concentrate, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and sweating.Menopause is part of the natural aging process. At the time of menopause a woman’s body no longer produces sufficient blood to sustain a monthly period without overly draining her system. Therefore, the body in its wisdom redirects the downward flow of blood and energy from the heart to the uterus. The flow of blood and energy is directed upward to nourish the spirit.
Our practitioners may use acupuncture and nutritional support to treat menopausal syndrome. The treatment will aim to stimulate the reproductive organs and rebalance the woman as a whole.
If a woman is having hormone replacement therapy, our acupuncture treatment will not interfere because the two treatments work in different ways. Women's maturity should be honoured and the time after menopause is often referred to as a woman’s “second spring”. The transitional time of menopause can be made much smoother with the use of acupuncture and nutritional support. The prognosis is very good for helping women suffering from menopausal symptoms. Our treatments have helped women enjoy their second spring by making their transition a smooth and comfortable one.
