Valley Acupuncture

From perimenopause to post menopause

This time in a woman`s life can be a big transition and different women can experience different changes both emotionally and physically. Some symptoms may be mild and don’t really affect your day to day functioning that much. Others may be more debilitating leaving you feeling tired, depressed and generally withdrawn. Whatever your age, acupuncture aims to restore your body`s natural balance, helping you to feel more in control and function better. This is achieved by assessing all your symptoms to get a detailed picture of what is your menopause and therefore individual to you. If required your treatment sessions can also include nutritional advice according to Chinese Food Energetics. This model helps women to understand the energetic temperature of food and how this may influence their symptoms.

Before starting acupuncture I was suffering from migraines, hot flushes, mood swings and night sweats. My sleep pattern was quite erratic, making every day functioning quite difficult. After my first treatment with Louise, I stopped experiencing migraines and the hot flushes considerably reduced. The night sweats were more bearable because they were less frequent. My sleeping pattern improved as did the mood swings and I continue to receive acupuncture because it has helped me with menopause symptoms.
Acupuncture is powerful yet gentle at the same time. Before treatment, I was angry on a regular basis as well as sad, high, low and tired. With acupuncture I felt more energized and relaxed. Hot flushes were fewer and my emotions felt calmer. For women out there, who feel completely out of control during menopause, try acupuncture, you will be amazed how much better you feel.
I started the menopause and didn’t want HRT. I had night sweats which disturbed my sleep, leaving me irritable the day after. I was suffering from low mood, low energy and a feeling of confusion. I felt old, and wondered where my zest for life had gone!. After the treatment I had no sweats and the morning after my zest for life was back. Louise was caring and the ultimate professional. If you are wondering if acupuncture will work for you, stop wondering and give it a go I cannot recommend this lady enough.
