Menopause
Menopause, ‘manopause’, and mid-life transitions can be beautiful, world-opening times in our lives when we discover new pieces of ourselves and become more at peace in our bodies. They can also sometimes be uncomfortable, tumultuous, and stressful. Just like hormonal fluctuations during puberty, shifting hormones during menopause are a major cause of this stress and discomfort. The goal of using acupuncture and herbs during this time is to reduce the symptoms of menopause and hormonal changes, regulate and balance your hormones for a smoother transition, and soothe anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can flare up during this time of great change. Whether you’re taking HRT (hormone replacement therapy) or not, acupuncture and herbs may help make your transition smoother and more enjoyable, and continue supporting beyond menopause too. We happily work with MDs and other healthcare providers to give you the most well-rounded care possible.
