Menopause

Menopause is a natural transition in a woman's life.  While you may be experiencing episodes of extreme discomfort, menopause is not an illness. Daily stress, improper nutrition, inadequate rest can make it challenging to move through this transition symptom-free. But menopause is not a disease. It is so unfortunate that we are accustomed to feeling so much dread about a powerfully significant time in our lives. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment effectively and easily relieves hot flashes, decreased libido, vaginal dryness, brain fog, and insomnia.  In fact, the women I treat often find relief in as little as 3 to 4 sessions, with the help of ongoing herbal and nutritional supplementation.

In 2011, a research study conducted by the National Institutes of Health concluded that, "application of the combination of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture proved as effective as hormone therapy in the treatment of menopause-related symptoms."  For many women, TCM has made it possible for them to avoid hormone therapies, and enjoy complete relief.  

When you're receiving Chinese Medicine treatment, the physical demands of menopause are greatly reduced. When the symptoms are relieved, your improved physical health frees up your psyche or your spirit to make healthy shifts as well.  When you feel better physically, emotional balance is restored, and you have the energy you want to thrive. You're in a better place to commit to everything you enjoy. You feel inspired to be the woman you truly are, more comfortable in your own skin, and you have a clearer sense of your own priorities.  As attention shifts away from reproductive function, toward the heart center of your own inner wisdom, you have the energy to live each day to the fullest. You'll be able to experience menopause as a life-giving rebirth, not the end or decline of life.
