Women experience menopause differently across the board. Between ages 40 and 60 the hormones estrogen and progesterone decline, which can result in symptoms that may range in severity from minor to life-changing. From anxiety and bloating to memory issues, weight gain, joint pain and irritability, the symptoms can disrupt your life. While many doctors who practice modern Western medicine prescribe hormone therapy or other medication, our menopause treatment may include acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and other components of naturopathic medicine that address these issues in a healthier, more natural way.
Acupuncture is highly effective in treating menopause and works to reduce stress while enhancing blood flow, promoting healing of the body’s tissues, restoring cells and balancing energy in the body. Many women are not aware of the body’s amazing ability to heal itself using food, herbs and natural things from the earth along with meditation and other therapies that promote wellness throughout the entire body. In traditional Chinese medicine the body is viewed as a whole instead of various systems and organs. By achieving total physical and emotional well-being, many of the symptoms of menopause are eliminated.
When you experience severe hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings or other symptoms of menopause most doctors treat the symptoms instead of the cause. Our natural approach is effective for helping balance hormones through holistic methods, lifestyle changes, improved nutrition, meditation, visualization and more.
Acupuncture improves your neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine systems), enhances circulation to specific glands and tissues that support hormone secretion, and dramatically reduces stress – all of which benefits your overall hormonal state.

Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat chronic and non-life threatening conditions like migraine, PMS, menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalance, and reproductive issues.
Treatment involves placing particular oils on specific acupuncture points on the body in order to trigger energetic changes in the individual that will bring the client back to a state of balance.
