What is Menopause?

Menopause is a natural process in which the ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, the female hormones. Menstrual periods become irregular and then cease. The average age of menopause is 51 years of age.

Facts about Menopause

Each woman experiences menopause with different symptoms. Fluctuating hormone levels cause symptoms that may manifest a few months or last years. Some women have no symptoms at all while others have considerable discomfort.

Symptoms of Menopause

  • Hot Flashes
  • Irritability
  • Mood Swings
  • Sudden Tears
  • Trouble Sleeping (with or without night sweats)
  • Depression
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Disturbing memory lapse

Acupuncture for Menopause


Acupuncture regulates hormone levels during menopause, easing common menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep difficulties, fatigue, and mood changes without side effects. Acupuncture can also alleviate the abdominal pain, cramping and erratic or heavy bleeding perimenopausal women may experience.

Menopause onset causes a pattern of diminished fluids, or dryness, which affects the entire body system. Acupuncture can strengthen yin, the bodys cooling, moist element. By strengthening yin acupuncture rebalances yang, the bodys hot, dry element, which becomes overactive during menopause.

Your acupuncture physician may recommend Chinese herbs, dietary modification and exercise to supplement your acupuncture therapy.

Acupuncture Vs Western Medicine

Menopausal symptoms are often treated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). However, HRT has been associated with adverse side effects such as heart disease, stroke, blood clots, and cancer. For women who choose to treat their symptoms naturally, acupuncture offers a holistic alternative.

Acupuncture improves yang-related menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats and dryness while nourishing the body fluids and tonifying blood. Acupuncture increases production of serotonin, the body natural painkillers, which can minimize discomfort associated with menopausal symptoms such as mood and sleep changes.
