Hormonal Balance During Perimenopause and Menopause

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can go a long way in helping to manage symptoms throughout this period of life. During perimenopause, typically you'll notice your cycle is beginning to change or new symptoms seem to be coming out of nowhere such as insomnia, weight gain or migraines. I can help you through these hormonal transitions using acupuncture, Chinese herbs, supplements and other mind/body practices. It's possible to greatly minimize symptoms and improve your hormonal health.

Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a very individualized approach to balancing hormones during perimenopause and menopause- no two women have the same combination of symptoms or background, so your treatment is tailored to your unique needs. For example, "Earth" type women are more prone to weight gain, digestive problems and mental fogginess. "Fire" type women are more prone to hot flashes, irritability and dryness. The elements of Metal, Water and Wood also have corresponding symptoms. Most women are a combination of two or three of these element types, and the best treatment will incorporate acupuncture points, herbs, supplements, dietary recommendations and mind/body practices which help to bring your body into a greater state of balance.
