Acupuncture Alleviates Symptoms of Menopause

The term "menopause" is commonly used to describe any of the changes a woman experiences either just before or after she stops menstruating. Most women in their 45-55 years old may get menopause symptoms. Menopause is the permanent end of a woman’s menstrual periods. 

Menopause symptoms may include:

  • hot flashes, 
  • night sweats, 
  • pain during intercourse, 
  • increased anxiety or irritability,  
  • insomnia, fatigue, 
  • mood swings, 
  • memory loss,
  • vaginal dryness, 
  • headaches, joint pain,
  • weight gain.

Menopause signals the end of ovulation for a woman. The transition period may last from several months to several years.

The entire menstrual cycle slowly comes to an end along with the rise and fall of the hormones estrogen and progesterone.  The rate that these hormones decline and the balance between the two is mainly responsible for the unwanted menopausal symptoms along with the overall state of health.

Acupuncture relieves symptoms of menopause:
Acupuncture has spectacular results in the vast majority of women undergoing the changes of menopause. In many cases it may even delay the arrival of menopause.

Acupuncture reduces hot flashes and night sweats, improves mood, increases libido, corrects sleep disorders and with more specialized treatments helps to maintain skin elasticity.

Improvement will be observed from the first treatments. 
1-2 sessions a week are required in the beginning and once the condition stabilized one session every 15 days is recommended for as long as necessary.
