Acupuncture has been proven through research that it can significantly reduce both the frequency and the amount of hot flushes in menopausal women. This is one of various menopausal symptoms women tend to suffer from. Since the body goes through a great change hormonally, it tends to affect our physical body and emotional body. Issues such as night sweats, insomnia, irritability, mood swings, dryness can range from mild to severe. Chinese medicine can treat all of these side effects and help the transition into menopause be one of more ease.
When a woman is going through menopause she is loosing her yin essence which is what is need for healthy reproduction. Depletion of yin throughout her final years of having a cycle, is a normal physical manifestation. What Chinese medicine is able to do, is reestablish the balance of hormones by nourishing yin in the body. Through this we see a great decrease in the difficult symptoms and side effects of menopause.
