Acupuncture for Menopause

Menopause is an oft-overlooked yet extremely important transition in women’s lives. Like pregnancy, it is also a time of great transformation for women as they usher in a new chapter of their lives; life without a period, and all the symptoms that it brings along with it. Since the 1960s, the idea of menopause being more like a “disease” than a normal physiological transformation has pervaded medical thought. Not unlike pregnancy complaints, it is easy to dismiss women’s stories of uncomfortable and sometimes disabling symptoms as something “normal,” and offer few effective tools for treating these very significant issues. Luckily, Chinese medicine offers many tools that can ease the transition. No longer are hot flashes, night sweats, and fatigue just things women have to wait out or turn to hormone replacement therapy to address. Acupuncture and herbs can help.
