Acupuncture for Menopause

An increasing weight of evidence from Western scientific research is demonstrating the effectiveness of acupuncture for treating a wide variety of conditions such as menopause and hormonal imbalance. 

 

For some women, menopause and the years leading up to it can be a time of troubling emotional and physical symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) eases symptoms like hot flushes and sweats in many cases, but it comes with side effects and it's not suitable for all women. HRT is now only prescribed for short-term treatment of menopausal symptoms in the UK.

 

New Danish research clearly demonstrates that menopausal symptoms can be successfully treated with acupuncture. The Danish study found that at last five weeks of acupuncture in women with menopausal symptoms reduced hot flushes, night sweats, sleep disturbances and emotional problems. Acupuncture for menopausal symptoms is a realistic option for women who cannot or do not wish to use HRT. Among women dealing with menopausal symptoms and hormonal imbalance, acupuncture could reduce the symptoms such as hot flushes, excess sweating, mood swings, sleep disturbances, and skin and hair problems.

Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of traditional medicine, which has been used in China and other eastern cultures for thousands of years to restore, promote and maintain good health. Its benefits are now widely acknowledged all over the world, and in the past decade, traditional acupuncture has begun to feature more prominently in mainstream healthcare in the UK. Traditional acupuncture takes a holistic approach to health and regards illness as a sign that the body is out of balance. The traditional acupuncturist’s skill lies in identifying the precise nature of the underlying disharmony and selecting the most effective treatment to restore the balance to the system.
