Many women experiencing menopause or peri-menopause seek out acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as a way to counteract symptoms that can disrupt all aspects of life. Eastern medicine can be used on its own or in conjunction with western approaches.
Eastern medicine re-establishes the balance of specific organ systems which regulate hormonal cycles and grounds energy that wants to “flash” upward and outward. It focuses on enriching the aspects of the body which tend to decline with the decrease of estrogen. Treatment plans will usually start with two treatments per week in addition to herbal therapy.
