"Navigating Physical and Mental Changes into the Menopause"

The average age for menopause in the UK is around 51 years old. However, the age at which women experience menopause can vary, with some women experiencing it earlier or later than others. Various factors, including genetics, lifestyle, and medical history, can influence the age at which menopause occurs.

Perimenopause can start in women as early as their mid-30s, but it typically begins in the late 40s or early 50s. Perimenopause is the transitional period before menopause, during which the body's hormone production begins to decline and fluctuate, leading to various symptoms. These symptoms include irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, mood changes, and vaginal dryness. Perimenopause can last for several years before menopause is reached, defined as the point at which a woman has not had a period for 12 consecutive months.
during the perimenopausal and menopausal changes, hormonal imbalances can lead to various symptoms, ranging from mild to bothersome. these symptoms may include hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, depression, mood swings, and discomforts such as skin and hair problems and joint pain.
bothersome menopausal symptoms can have an impact on your sleep, work, and relationships, causing feelings of agitation and frustration. although some women may have only mild symptoms, others may experience troublesome symptoms during this transition.
although menopause is a natural process, it can be a challenging time for many women, with both emotional and physical symptoms. acupuncture is a natural approach that can help alleviate these symptoms of menopause and perimenopausal symptoms. 
hormone replacement therapy (hrt) has typically been the primary treatment for menopause symptoms, but it may not be appropriate for everyone. on the other hand, traditional chinese medicine and acupuncture is a type of complementary medicine that is natural  and has proven to be successful treatment for menopause symptoms with very few side effects and low risk.
I recently tried acupuncture treatments for menopause. I was impressed with the results. The treatments were not painful, and I felt relief after each session. I noticed my hot flashes and night sweats started to decrease in frequency and intensity. Additionally, my mood swings also improved. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone looking for an effective and natural way to help manage the symptoms of menopause.

How does Acupuncture work for menopause & Perimenopausal Symptom's?

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine which works by rebalancing the body and restoring energy flow; acupuncture works by stimulating specific acupuncture points on the body that are believed to be related to menopause symptoms. for example, the points on the feet and legs are thought to be related to hot flushes, while acupuncture points on the wrists and hands are related to insomnia and anxiety. by inserting needles into these points, acupuncturists aim to regulate the flow of qi and restore balance to the body.

Acupuncture can help menopausal symptoms in several ways. The menopausal transition occurs when a woman's menstrual periods stop, and her hormone levels decrease. As a result, most women may experience a range of common symptoms, including vasomotor symptoms (hot flushes), weight gain, hair problems or hair loss, anxiety,  mood swings, sleep disturbances, and vaginal dryness.

Acupuncture can help alleviate these symptoms by:
  1. Balancing hormones: Acupuncture can help balance the levels of hormones in the body, such as estrogen and progesterone. This can reduce hot flushes and night sweats and improve mood.
  2. Improving sleep quality: Acupuncture can stimulate the production of endorphins, which can help promote relaxation and reduce sleep disturbance to help create a better sleep quality.
  3. Reducing stress: Menopause can be a stressful time for women, and stress can exacerbate symptoms such as hot flashes and mood swings. Acupuncture can help reduce stress levels and promote a sense of calm.
  4. Boosting energy levels: Some women experience fatigue and lack of energy during menopause. Acupuncture can help improve energy levels by stimulating the body's natural healing processes.
  5. Alleviating vaginal dryness: Acupuncture can increase blood flow to the genital area, which can improve vaginal dryness and discomfort during sex.
  6. osteoporosis is a common issue in post-menopausal women. several large-scale reviews indicate that acupuncture could help.
