Have you just started menopause and already finding the hot flashes challenging, not to mention sleep? Acupuncture can work wonders for women suffering from menopausal symptoms.
Menopause generally occurs around the age of 50 when the body's level of estrogen and progesterone decline and menstruation ceases. It can be accompanied by some of the following symptoms:
Irritability, mood changes
Weight gain - particularly around the belly

In Chinese medicine terms, menopause is a transitionary process, where the blood, energy and Yin (Chinese term for fluids), begin to decrease and the vessels that are flush with blood for conception and vitality begin to decrease. Menopause is unique to each woman and each woman will have their own experience to signs and symptoms and how best to manage it.
