Menopause is a truly remarkable time of coming into your own light and radiance. During this phase your energy shifts from a period of growth and reproduction to one of increased wisdom and intuition. Your body, in its wisdom, conserves the blood and essence from the menstrual cycle to nourish your spirit and vitality and extend your longevity.
This remarkable transition can also be marked by physical, emotional and spiritual challenges. Menopausal symptoms can range from mild to severe and may last a few months to several years. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a common treatment that is often started when the first symptoms of menopause appear. While HRT may alleviate hot flashes and prevent osteoporosis, they also have a number of significant side-effects including an increased risk of breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer. Chinese Medicine truly shines when it comes to the treatment of menopausal symptoms. Treatments include acupuncture and herbal medicine along with diet and lifestyle changes. These healing therapies promote safe and natural hormone regulation and restore balance to your mind, body and spirit.
