From PMS to Fertility to Menopause, balancing our hormones can sometimes be a challenge for our bodies. Acupuncture can help to re-balance our hormones and create harmony in the body again, thereby alleviating symptoms of PMS or Menopause or by getting the body in a place it can be ready to conceive. Acupuncture can help with alleviating many of the following hormonal symptoms:

  • Changes in mood

  • Irritability, anxiety or depression

  • Tiredness

  • Interrupted sleep

  • Dry skin

  • Sore or weak muscles

  • Breast tenderness

  • Headaches or migraines

  • Spotty or sensitive skin

  • Changes in appetite 

  • Sugar cravings

  • Poor co-ordination

  • Weight gain

  • Low libido

  • Prolapse

  • Hot flushes

  • Changes in vaginal discharge

Menopausal women 

Typically the symptoms of menopause are treated using Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) which is thought to ease many of the symptoms of menopause, but unfortunately it is not suitable for all women to take HRT. Acupuncture can provide women with a less invasive, gentler and effective way of combating the symptoms of menopause and can be used as an alternative to medication. It works by balancing hormones which in turn reduces the frequency and intensity of symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings, headaches and more.

Fertility

It has been shown in studies that acupuncture along side IVF can improve a woman’s chances of conception considerably and acupuncture alone can also have a significant effect on fertility.
