Here’s a lovely message from a recent patient about how acupuncture has helped her with symptoms of the menopause
‘Prior to having acupuncture I was suffering from recurrent night sweats , severe mood swings & migraine type headaches, all of which I understood to be symptoms of the menopause, after my third treatment all of these symptoms had stopped & I recall saying to a friend "I feel like me again, but better!" this for me is a far safer option than HRT.’
There is some research that supports the anecdotal feedback I receive. The results of these studies tend to indicate there is benefit in the use of acupuncture in the alleviation of menopausal symptoms, particularly hot flushes and anxiety.
