Address Your Body’s Needs at Every Stage of Life with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Here’s a word that can really make you feel old (if you let it): peri-menopausal. And while it is true that our cycles do change as we move through our 40′s, nothing about that has to detract from how vibrant we feel or how active we are. At the Yinova Center we operate under the assumption that though we are all getting older, we do not have to be “Old.”
Our patients living their fifth decade have varied concerns, from parenting young adults to wanting to conceive, from transitioning to new careers to planning for retirement, from caring for aging parents to doing all they can to put off the time when they themselves will need such care. What they all have in common is working on getting and staying as healthy as they can be, in mind and body.
And that’s just the ticket to successfully managing this time in your life. When we were in our twenties we may have been able to get away with some things without notable consequences to our health, but by the time we reach our 40′s our bodies need a lot more support. The good news is: if we are good to them, they will be good to us.
This is particularly important in the run up to menopause. What you do now sets the stage for that major transition; taking action during peri-menopause can set you up for a trouble-free menopause. This is the best time to come in and let us help you deal with any niggling health problems. Your future self will thank you.
For women in menopause, Chinese medicine has some gentle solutions that help make this transition easier. We use herbs, acupuncture and nutritional supplements to treat menopausal symptoms.
For women in this phase of life, we often treat:
- Heavy Periods
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Irregular Cycles
- Mood Swings
- Sleep Disturbances
- Weight Gain
