Acupuncture for Menopause in Las Vegas

Menopause may be an entirely natural occurrence, but the symptoms you experience can make you feel anything but normal. Hot flashes, chills, mood swings, fatigue, and other issues can seriously erode your quality of life. But the healing benefits of acupuncture can help you transition to this stage of life much more easily. If you're struggling with menopause in Las Vegas, you can obtain much-needed relief here at Peter Lok Acupuncture in Las Vegas, NV.

Menopause Symptoms and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Menopause is the time of life when ovulation ceases, ending a woman's menstrual cycles and childbearing years. It is preceded by a transitional phase known as perimenopause. The physical and biochemical changes that occur during this phase can cause a great deal of discomfort. Symptoms may include sleeplessness, cold and/or hot flashes, depression, mood swings, weight gain, headaches, migraines, and joint pain.

Western medicine takes a rather straightforward approach to addressing menopause symptoms, from hormone therapy to antidepressant drugs, as if it were a disease to be stamped out. By contrast, Traditional Chinese Medicine views menopause as the body's way of redirecting its blood and energy to support the kidneys, the traditional source of longevity and spiritual vitality. This more positive perspective means that instead of trying to treat menopause itself, Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on simply relieving the individual symptoms as needed to ease the transition.

Drug-Free Relief from Hot Flashes, Mood Swings, and Other Discomforts

As a staple of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture can prove instrumental in providing relief from hot flashes and other common menopause symptoms. Some of the acupuncture points used relate directly to the kidney health and energy; others aim to improve coordination between the kidneys and liver and/or spleen.

Still, others are effective against specific symptoms such as sleeplessness, hot flashes, and fatigue. We may even make use of acupuncture points that offer a more general healing effect on the body as a whole. For example, we may use a point at the top of the head called Bai hui to re-balance the complementary energies of yin and yang throughout your body.

Research has found acupuncture effective against menopause symptoms. One study saw a 35-percent reduction in hot flashes and a 50-percent reduction in insomnia among participants.  Another study found that hot flash relief continued for up to 6 months after acupuncture treatment.
