Menopause for most women comes with a variety of symptoms, such as hot flashes, headaches and mood swings, all of these can be difficult to deal with. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can alleviate these symptoms by supporting and nourishing the body and balancing hormones.
TCM views menopause as a result of lifestyle choices and dietary habits. Many of these lifestyle and dietary choices weaken the flow of Kidney energy causing an imbalance. Stressors, anxiety, overwork, inadequate rest and irregular diet also create imbalances in the body.
In TCM, the most typical pattern for menopause is Kidney Yin Deficiency. The presenting symptoms are hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, tinnitus, night sweats and weakness of low back and knees. TCM has several formulas that are effective in treating these conditions as well as many useful acupuncture points.
Research has demonstrated that acupuncture can significantly decease the frequency of hot flashes. Usually treatments once a week for the first few weeks, followed by bi-weekly treatments and maintenance treatments can prevent occurrence.
Note: Micro-current stimulation can be done on Acu-points, therefore, No Needles!
