Understanding Perimenopause and Its Symptoms

First, can we have a moment and celebrate the fact that terms like “perimenopause” are becoming more common and easier to find information on? We still have a long way to go but if you’re reading this, we consider that to be huge progress. But in case you’re still unsure about what exactly perimenopause is, let us explain. Perimenopause marks the period leading up to menopause when the ovaries gradually begin to produce less estrogen. It’s a natural phase for women, typically starting in their 40s, but for some, it can begin earlier. Symptoms vary widely but commonly include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and sleep disturbances—signals that your body is undergoing significant hormonal changes.

How Acupuncture Supports Hormonal Balance

Acupuncture is an excellent tool for regulating hormonal imbalances, whether used alongside Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) or as a standalone treatment. By targeting specific points on the body, acupuncture helps restore balance in your body and reduce the intensity of those undesirable perimenopause symptoms you may be experiencing. Through this process, it stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal by improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation, and encouraging the optimal function of the endocrine system.


Are You Experiencing Any Of These Perimenopausal Symptoms

  • Hot Flashes and Night Sweats: These can be some of the most disruptive symptoms of perimenopause. Fortunately, acupuncture has been shown to cool down the intensity and frequency of hot flashes and improve sleep quality by reducing night sweats.
  • Mood Swings: Emotional roller coasters may become a common experience during perimenopause. In turn, acupuncture can help stabilize mood swings by promoting emotional calm and reducing anxiety.
  • Sleep Problems: Lastly, difficulty sleeping is one of the top complaints heard in our clinic. Acupuncture can enhance sleep by promoting relaxation and addressing the root causes of insomnia.

While these are the primary symptoms, acupuncture also helps with other issues like decreased libido, irregular periods, and weight gain, although they are typically less pronounced. We will go through all of this in your initial consultation when you come in if there is something you don’t see here that you want addressed!

Integrating Acupuncture into Your Lifestyle

Consider acupuncture not just as a treatment but as a part of a holistic approach to health during perimenopause. It’s not a “one and done” treatment option, but incorporating it into your holistic health-care routine can amplify the effects of other lifestyle changes, such as diet, exercise, and stress management, creating a comprehensive approach to your healthcare during this significant life phase. Acupuncture also encourages mindfulness, helping you stay in tune with your body’s evolving needs. By fostering a consistent practice, you empower yourself to embrace this transition with greater confidence and vitality.


Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions to shed some more light on this transformative journey.

How many sessions will I need before noticing results?

Every woman’s body responds differently to acupuncture. Some may notice improvements immediately, while others might see changes gradually. Typically, a series of sessions are recommended to achieve the best results, tailored to your specific symptoms and health goals.


How should I prepare for an acupuncture session?

Make sure to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and stay well-hydrated. It’s best to have a light meal a few hours before your session to prevent feeling lightheaded. Discuss any concerns with your acupuncturist beforehand so they can tailor each session to your needs.


What additional benefits does acupuncture offer?

Acupuncture not only relieves symptoms but also actively reduces stress and enhances overall relaxation. These benefits are especially valuable during perimenopause, supporting not just physical but also emotional well-being.
