Anyone who’s experienced this deeply restorative snooze will tell you that it’s deeply restorative. But why is it so special?

The menopause often brings disruption and misery to a woman’s life. It can involve one or more of a range of symptoms, which women experience to varying degrees and levels of distress. These can include night sweats and hot flushes, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue, headaches, aches and pains, palpitations and genital and urinary problems.
Acupuncture supports the body to alleviate these symptoms in a natural and long-lasting way, without the need for Hormone Replacement Therapy. For women who want to continue with HRT it is still beneficial to receive acupuncture as it will treat the hormonal imbalance that the medication is masking.

Before we get started on any acupuncture, I get you booked in for a free 30-minute consultation. We can do this via telephone or zoom.
If we decide to work together then the next step is to book an initial assessment and first treatment. Prior to that appointment, I’ll get you to complete a short health history form so I can get started on working out what’s going on for you.
When we meet in person I will ask lots of questions to make a complete diagnosis of your main complaint and to get an overall picture of your health. We’ll also talk a little about emotional experiences that may have contributed to your physical symptoms.
I am a ‘trauma-informed’ acupuncturist, which means that I understand that our emotions, traumas (big and little), past illnesses and current and past life experiences all contribute to our health.
I will then look at your tongue and feel your pulses before starting your treatment.
After we’ve done some acupuncture, I’ll go through which programme I think you need to be on and recommend lifestyle changes that you will need to make to ensure a quick and successful recovery.
