Treat Menopause with Acupuncture and Holistic Medicine

Menopause is a transition through which every woman will go. It signals the end of her fertility, as well as a new chapter in one’s life as a female. For many women, the physical and emotional challenges are great. However, numerous people also find it to be a time of self-discovery and enhanced wisdom.

Of course, the discomforts of menopause are rarely welcome, and women have sought to alleviate them for ages. Here at our wellness center in Aventura Florida, we offer acupuncture as a treatment for menopause, and will be glad to help you move through this transition with as much grace and comfort as possible. Depending on whether your menopause is occurring naturally, or as the result of an external event (surgery or chemotherapy, for example), investigate the options and talk to us about what is the best treatment for you.

Like with the other conditions acupuncture addresses, menopause is often approached with a combination of Western and Eastern philosophies, and treatments including acupuncture, herbs and conventional medications. Every woman is different, and the complex nature of hormones means that what works for one will not work for another. Still, with enough time and a determined health care team, you should be able to find relief with acupuncture as part of your care.

We have treated many of our patients suffering with the symptoms of menopause with success. And we are confident that we can help you too.

Menopause and Acupuncture Treatment

The treatment of acupuncture itself is very safe. Very thin, sterile needles (which are used only once) are placed in your skin at strategic points. The concept is based on tapping meridians that run through your body, and working with them to restore balance. Another way to look at it is as manipulating receptors that interact with pain management. Whether you take an Eastern or Western viewpoint, acupuncture is a relaxing approach that promotes calm and healing without drugs or physically invasive measures.

It’s important to understand how menopause differs from other acupuncture-treated conditions. It is not an illness. Yet, it comes with symptoms that are typically undesirable. Acupuncture is designed to lessen the symptoms while the condition runs its course. The goal is to help a woman through menopause with as little pain and discomfort as possible. Your quality of life can drastically improve with the help of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

When you approach menopause with a variety of conventional, alternative and complementary treatments, it’s essential to keep every part of your health care team informed. While herbs are considered natural, and usually very safe, they may interact with certain medications. Please tell your family doctor and acupuncture practitioner of any other things you might be doing to manage menopause.
