Acupuncture Treatment for Menopause in Canberra

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used to manage menopausal symptoms and support overall well-being during this life stage. In simple terms, here’s how they may work for menopause:

Acupuncture During Menopause:

  1. Balancing Energy (Qi): Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to balance the flow of vital energy (Qi). During menopause, it can help regulate the body’s energy flow to address imbalances and promote overall harmony.
  2. Hormone Regulation: Acupuncture is thought to influence the release of certain hormones, including those related to the menstrual cycle and menopause. It may help regulate hormonal fluctuations that can lead to hot flashes, mood swings, and other symptoms.
  3. Hot Flash Reduction: Acupuncture may help reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes, a common menopausal symptom, by promoting relaxation and modulating the body’s temperature regulation.
  4. Stress Reduction: Menopause can be a stressful time. Acupuncture sessions can promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve emotional well-being.
  1. Sleep Improvement: Acupuncture can address sleep disturbances often associated with menopause by promoting better sleep patterns and relaxation.
