Acupuncture and Menopause

WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE AND MENOPAUSE?

If you’re looking for help to ease and lessen your menopausal symptoms, our qualified Acupuncture Practitioners at The Forge Clinic, Richmond have extensive experience in supporting women at this stage of their lives.

WHAT IS THE MENOPAUSE?

The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels decline.

Most women will experience menopausal symptoms. These commonly include hot flushes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping and anxiety. Some of these symptoms can be quite severe and have a significant impact on your everyday activities.

The main conventional treatment for menopausal symptoms is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Some women find HRT effective, but others experience distressing side effects; some are advised against taking it, and others are unwilling to take it.

CASE STUDY

Anna* decided to try acupuncture to ease her menopausal symptoms. She was finding hot flushes a particular problem. “My hot flushes were becoming more and more frequent and uncomfortable,” she explains.

Hot flushes are thought to be caused by changes in your hormone levels affecting your body’s temperature control.

Anna decided to try acupuncture therapy as she wanted a natural way to treat her symptoms. She says, she believes that: “The orthodox approach to managing menopause is very invasive with heavy medication. Also, I am not allowed to take any synthetic form of HRT.”

So, what was her experience of acupuncture treatment?

Anna says she was a little nervous at first as she doesn’t like needles. However, she was reassured with a clear explanation about the treatment process. “The needles don’t harm or hurt. Once the needles are in, I fully relax and completely forget about them.”

Anna began to notice the benefits after just two treatment sessions. “My symptoms were much lighter,” she says. After her fourth treatment, she was pleased with the difference: “My symptoms were almost non-existent!”

She says she feels that: “Chinese medicine works more on the energy levels than orthodox medicine. It has a more holistic view too, which suits me better.”

Anna has been impressed with the results and says she will definitely consider having acupuncture treatment again. “I think I might even book myself for tomorrow,” she smiles.

ACUPUNCTURE FOR MENOPAUSE CASE STUDY 2

Donna* decided to try traditional acupuncture as she wanted a natural treatment to help her through the menopause.
She had begun to experience hot flushes and night sweats shortly after her 50th birthday. “When they became more frequent and difficult to live with, I went to my GP whose only proposal was to go down the hormone replacement therapy (HRT) route,” explains Donna. “But I was reluctant to go there.” So, Donna began searching for another way that might offer her the support she needed during this challenging new phase in her life. She was finding the menopause particularly difficult, not just physically, but emotionally too. “For many years I had found my waning fertility hard to deal with”, she explains. “I knew that I needed something to help me manage these feelings and embrace the changes my body was going through in a more holistic way.” Then a friend suggested that Donna should consider acupuncture therapy. So, she decided to book a preliminary consultation with qualified acupuncturist Maureen McCann. After a long, in-depth discussion about her physical symptoms and emotional health, Maureen proposed a personalised treatment programme which Donna was eager to start. This tailored series of regular treatments proved to be effective. Donna says: “Not only did the hot flushes and sweats disappear very quickly, but I also felt generally ‘better’.” A few months after the initial acupuncture treatments, whenever Donna experienced another occasional hot flush, she would immediately book a further session of acupuncture. “Again, the symptoms disappeared straight away!” she smiles. “Then I remember one evening many months later, being surprised when a hot flush started as I had forgotten all about them. I booked myself in for a treatment again and that was the last hot flush I ever had.” “Acupuncture very quickly and effectively removed hot flushes from my life, but just as importantly for me, acupuncture has continued to make me feel ‘better’ in myself, in a way I find hard to put into words.” While Donna is convinced that acupuncture played a vital role in easing her menopausal symptoms, she has also been pleasantly surprised that it has boosted her sense of well-being too. “From time to time, when I find it difficult to deal with everyday life, I visit Maureen for treatment. Not only does she provide a safe environment and a space to be able to talk through and reflect on what’s happening to me, but Maureen also tailors a treatment plan to ‘top me up’ after which I feel re-energised. In fact, Maureen is my first port of call when things are not right – not only does she know me far better than my GP, but I firmly believe that acupuncture stimulates my body’s own healing response and helps me help myself.”
