CURIOUS ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE FOR PERIMENOPAUSE OR MENOPAUSE?
Living a normal daily life while battling with the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause can be incredibly tough. Conventional treatment for menopause isn’t for everyone, and can result in unwanted side effects. Acupuncture offers a natural, safe and effective alternative treatment for perimenopausal symptoms and works in harmony with your body – guiding you through this time of change with gentle support and relief.
After trying all sorts of remedies, acupuncture was the only therapy that actually worked to lift the extreme fatigue brought on by perimenopause.

Everyone experiences menopause in their own unique way. However, the varied – and sometimes embarrassing – symptoms you are experiencing may be more common than you realise. You are certainly not alone.
Common menopausal symptoms you may be experiencing:
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Anxiety and Depression
- Brain fog/forgetfulness
- Weight Gain
- Vaginal dryness
A Swedish study in 2007 found that women receiving acupuncture had greater lasting relief from hot flashes for even longer than women on hormone replacement therapy. Acupuncture is safe, effective and painless when administered by a licensed, board certified acupuncturist.
