Acupuncture for Menopause -
AcuSpa Serves the Greater Orlando Area
Menopause, also known as “the change of life”, can last from several months to several years. Some women have only mild symptoms, while others experience severe symptoms. During menopause a woman’s body chemistry is changing and adapting to lesser amounts of estrogen.
According to Oriental Medicine, menopause can be marked by an imbalance of Yin and Yang energies. Yin energy is of a cooling, fluid nature. The decline of Yin energy during menopause results in symptoms associated with heat such as night sweats, hot flashes, irritability and restlessness, mood swings and sleep disturbances.
On the contrary, Yang is associated with warming, metabolizing energy. An imbalance in Yang energy can result in symptoms of water retention, cold hands and feet, weight gain, and hypertension.
Your acupuncturist will perform a thorough initial examination, piecing together your symptoms and signs, along with information gathered from pulse and tongue diagnoses in order to develop a unique treatment plan to address your concerns. She may utilize a variety of therapies such as acupuncture, herbs, Qi Gong and diet to address the imbalances present.
