Acupuncture for Women & Girls
In Chinese medicine females have 7 year cycles of life. The descriptions of what happens in these cycles. There are 3 times in a woman's life that are considered the most vulnerable when health can improve or deteriorate. Menarche (first menstruation), labour, and menopause.
I see women through various times in their lives, from pre-wedding stress, to coming off the pill and deciding to try for a family and on into labour and the menopause.
Mental health is also an area of extreme importance to work on; in every acupuncture treatment I work on helping the person's emotional state using traditional principles and applications of Chinese Medicine.
A doctor specialising in mindfulness training near Slough said during menopause, the tap of a vital hormone gets turned off and you just don't know how that will affect you. For example, if it happens quickly, your symptoms may be more noticeable.
Once you hit a certain age, most of your health related symptoms may get brushed off as menopausal. Remember, you may have had decades of rushing around leading to exhaustion, carrying heavy handbags contributing to frozen shoulder; and possibly all sorts of stressful interpersonal relationships, bereavements and stresses piling up feelings of anxiety.
I use acupuncture, Chinese Medicine dietary principles, mindfulness, and other techniques to start to help your body move to a more comfortable state. It's a gradual process to help you ease into a special phase of your life.
