Acupuncture for Menopause in London
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can treat menopause effectively and naturally. Every woman should go through menopause with no signs or symptoms. The symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, insomnia, depression, and dryness are all symptoms of the body being out of balance. Acupuncture and herbs can help bring the body back to balance and relieve symptoms completely naturally with no side effects.
Acupuncture can alleviate many menopausal symptoms by rebalancing the hormonal system, especially headaches and migraines, hot flushing, heavy flooding periods, back pain and sagging skin tone. Heavy and erratic menstrual bleeding in perimenopausal women can be relieved by this technique. It also relieves the pain and headache associated with menstruation. Acupuncture also has positive effects on insomnia and stress. Treatment can also improve the mobilization of Qi (chi) to the nervous system to aid poor memory and concentration.
The most common symptoms of menopause can be broken into two categories:
Physical symptoms of menopause include hot flashes/flushes and sweating, night sweats, vaginal dryness, decreased libido, urinary changes, palpitations, digestive disturbance, headaches, fatigue, weight gain and heart palpitations (sensation of your heart beating).
Mental and emotional manifestations of menopause include depression, anxiety, irritability, poor memory and insomnia
What causes menopause symptoms?
From perimenopause to the end of menstruation (menopause; one year of no periods) usually takes 2 to 5 years. Hormone production overall decreases. Periods become more and more irregular and may become heavier or scantier, longer or shorter. Ovulation may or may not occur. As ovarian follicle and ovulation dwindle, and eventually cease, estrogen and progesterone production dips. This causes the symptoms of menopausal syndrome.
How does acupuncture treat menopause symptoms?
From a Western medical perspective, decreasing hormone levels leads to the symptoms of the night sweating, hot flashes, urogenital changes, low libido, depression and fatigue, but Chinese medicine has a different perspective. By identifying the organs and systems that are in distress, acupuncture can help reduce symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, making this transition easier.
Acupuncture balances the constitution, regulates the body’s energy and improves circulation. By restoring balance to the body, acupuncture can treat the symptoms of menopause safely and effectively.
Menopause and TCM–How Chinese medicine understand menopause
The female system is an incredibly beautiful, complex balance. It is an individual module of the creative universe. A woman is usually a marvellous thing to be, but the intricacies of her body are delicately tuned and can become unbalanced or obstructed easily, causing pain, and poor function. A woman is such a wholly bound together person that imbalances often cause lack of union between mind and body. She loses the accustomed oneness with herself, resulting in physiological and emotional problems.
