Acupuncture Natural Relief From Menopause Symptoms

The precise mechanism of how acupuncture works is very difficult to pinpoint. However, research suggests that, in the case of menopause, it benefits the body through the regulation of hormones and increasing blood flow to the organs.

Evidence Based

Reviews and trials have shown that acupuncture is at least as effective, and sometimes superior to, hormonal drug treatment. And that acupuncture improves on usual, or self, care. As with many research trials it’s suggested that more high quality studies are needed.

How Acupuncture May Help Reduce Symptoms of the Menopause and Perimenopause

Regulating serum estradiol, follicle stimulating hormone and luteotrophic hormone (Xia 2008);

Increasing relaxation and reducing tension (Samuels 2008). Acupuncture can alter the brain’s mood chemistry, reducing serotonin levels (Zhou 2008) and increasing endorphins (Han, 2004) and neuropeptide Y levels (Lee 2009), which can help to combat negative affective states.

Stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, which leads to release of endorphins and other neurohumoral factors, and changes the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord (Pomeranz, 1987, Zijlstra 2003, Cheng 2009)

What People Say About Acupuncture For Menopause With Jo
Jo first started treating me through my cancer treatment, supporting me with fatigue, dropping immunity and sleep problems. When the hot flushes started I knew where to turn. Jo introduced me to the Menopoised Menopause Magnet to help me with my hot flushes and night sweats. It worked, heat is much more manageable and I can get back on with life.”
Jo, West Sussex

Jo worked wonders with my hot flushes! It took about 6 sessions but my menopaual systems have dissapeared. She has studied the menopause and was able to treat me for the menopuase type I am. I would recommend anyone to Jo. Her approach is friendly, caring and professional. Thank you so much jo! I owe you big time.” Melanie, Brighton
