With Perimenopause can come a whole host of symptoms and Acupuncture can help. Stress and PMS worsens, sex drive drops or disappears altogether, there can be unexplained mood-swings, sadness or dissatisfaction with life, insomnia, and a change in the quality of periods. Ah, the joy!
Great Results – Acupuncture for Perimenopause
Our experience with Acupuncture and Perimenopause is very positive. Very often we find this particular age group often feels unappreciated and unheard. There is much attention given to the Menopausal woman and surprisingly little given to those in transition to “the change.” This is why we listen intently to the specifics of their experience and give them a new way of viewing this stage in life – Reminding them that in fact it is only a stage, and this too shall pass. Beyond the current symptoms, we put their experience in a larger context that creates helps to manage expectations and see things in a bigger picture.
In a practical sense, it may help to know that the cramping and PMS lessens with acupuncture about one week before menses – good news for all involved. After an Acupuncture session with Nancy M. Burns, L.Ac., they leave more relaxed, usually smiling, and with a new tool for thriving during this phase of their life.
