Acupuncture for menopause

This fabulous article in The Guardian inspired me to write about menopause today, as it is time to remove the taboo that stops women from talking freely about it as it has negative connotations about age and vitality when in reality young women can go through the menopause naturally or as a result of treatment for cancer, and older women can find a sense of liberation and joy in not having to deal with menstrual cycles anymore.

I have lost count of the number of women who come to my clinic and report anxiety, insomnia, night sweats, genitourinary symptoms and brain fog, and when I ask about their menstrual cycles they tell me they have not had a period for some months or they have become irregular or they are bleeding a lot less. All these signs can indicate perimenopause, the years leading up to the menopause (the menopause is a one day event, marked by one year since the last menstrual period).

As a result of this, I took specialist training on acupuncture for menopause and now feel a lot more confident that I can help women through this period, alongside their HRT if they are taking it or with acupuncture only if they decide to go down that route.

Get in touch if you would like a no obligation conversation about how I might be able to help in my clinic in Crouch End, North London.
