Can acupuncture help during menopause?

Yes! Acupuncture has helped many women with their menopausal symptoms. A Danish study concluded that acupuncture produced a “clinically relevant reduction in moderate-to-severe menopausal symptoms during the six-week intervention”. Most often women who look to acupuncture for relief from their menopause symptoms are struggling with hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, loss of energy, vaginal dryness, or difficulty sleeping. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine recognizes these symptoms as signs of imbalance and our goal is to not just relieve the symptoms but to balance your system as a whole.

We can also offer great herbal formulas and supplements based on the symptoms you are experiencing.

At home, you can be sure to support your body by eating nutrient dense foods, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding or reducing alcohol, spicy foods, coffee, and fried foods.
