For centuries, acupuncture has been used to help women transition into menopause smoothly. In Chinese Medicine, menopause is referred to as the ‘Second Spring’, a time to celebrate and relish in the amazing female body. Unfortunately for many women, this is a time of sleepless nights, restless legs, vaginal dryness, pain and hot flashes.
According to TCM, menopause is a time when a women’s yin is depleting and no longer balancing a women’s yang. In TCM, Yin encompasses the watery, cooling, passive, receptive, grounded aspects of our body while Yang encompasses the fiery, hot, active,
expansive aspects of our body. Acupuncture is used to restore balance to a women’s yin and yang to reduce the symptoms women experience during their time in menopause.
Whether your symptoms are just starting or have been persistent for years, acupuncture may help to reduce these symptoms and allow you to enjoy this season of life.
