Acupuncture is a key element in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that involves thin needles that are inserted into the body at acupuncture points and energy channels. Through the centuries, this amazing alternative medicine has been used for various ailments like chronic pain, weight loss, anxiety, migraines and menopause. Today, many use acupuncture for maintenance and prevention as well as helping with specific symptoms.
What is more, recent studies show that a holistic method such as acupuncture can ease various menopausal symptoms.
When rendering the principles behind acupuncture, hormonal imbalances emerge when the internal balance of Yin-Yang energy is broken or interrupted. The objective of acupuncture is to rebalance and strengthen Yin-Yang within the body. When the internal balance is restored, irritability and mood swings are drastically reduced or eliminated.
