Menopause & Perimenopause Treatment
The history of natural menopause treatment is as old as Chinese Medicine itself, this includes over 2000 years in experience and wisdom. While each woman has different menopause symptoms, many will experience the effects of decreased estrogen and progesterone. When this hormonal change occurs menopause is defined by three stages:
- Peri-menopause – typically 40-50, the time before Menopause.
- Menopause – the main hormonal transition period.
- Post-Menopause – the time following 12 months of no menstrual period.
With a variety of symptoms occurring during all three stages, many women have difficulty managing these changes on their own and find that Acupuncture is very helpful when going through this transition. Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture, is a highly effective and hormone-free method to relieve the discomfort associated with all stages and symptoms of menopause.
