Let’s Talk about Menopause and TCM!

UGGGH… Menopause!

🥵 You’re thinking: hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, palpitations, vaginal dryness, no sex drive, brain fog and even weight gain.  

☯️ You’re right, all those can happen and commonly do… but none of it has to happen because menopause is a natural process we’re intended to experience. 

We call menopause the Second Spring in Chinese Medicine. It’s a time for inner reflection, spiritual growth and expression of our true selves. 

There is a Chinese saying “Women in their 30’s are Wolves; in their 40’s, Tigers; and their 50’s, Dragons” 

(Remember, dragons in eastern cultures are revered and held in high esteem) 

☯️ TCM recognizes the symptoms of menopause as an indication of imbalances deep within the body. 

☯️ Acupuncture focuses on correcting underlying imbalances that occur over years. Treatment can support healing energies; providing the body with the tools needed to nourish, heal and regain balance. 

Come see me to find out more about how acupuncture can help you.
