Menopause is a natural transition from one phase of life to the next. It marks the cessation of menstrual periods and the end of childbearing years. Menopause is not a pathological disease requiring medication or a cure. While some women have no problem getting through this time, many women experience mild to severe discomfort during menopause.

For many years, medical doctors have prescribed synthetic hormone replacement therapy to combat the symptoms of menopause. However, Western therapies may have unwanted side effects such as blood clots, heart attack, stroke, breast cancer or gall bladder disease. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are natural, safe and effective methods of relief for menopause and each treatment plan is designed uniquely to each individual. As a woman hormone levels decrease, acupuncture and Chinese herbs can treat the following imbalances:

  • Weight gain
  • Loss of libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings or depression
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Memory impairment
  • Irregular bleeding, heavy or painful menstruation.
