The hormonal changes that accompany menopause depend in large part on the health of the liver and its partner organ the gallbladder.
During menopause, the balance of the body’s hormones changes dramatically, and one of the best ways to treat those imbalances is by working with the liver as it breaks down the excess hormones and at the same time creates the chemical backbone for new, healthy and balanced hormones. This alleviates common symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, fluid retention and mood swings.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the best ways of treating the body holistically, as it combines body, mind, and emotions into one system of medicine.
The body has energy which flows through pathways called meridians that correspond to the organs of the body – liver, spleen, kidney, heart, lung, gallbladder, stomach, urinary bladder, small intestine and large intestine – and come to the surface at specific points, each with specific functions.
When we insert acupuncture needles into those points, we activate those functions, such as strengthening digestion, improving blood flow and energy circulation within the liver, relaxing muscles, and improving the immune system.
A standard course of treatment consists of two one hour sessions per week for approximately four weeks.
