Menopause is a time of profound change in a woman’s life.

Many may experience uncomfortable health and emotional symptoms. However menopause can also bring about fulfilling life changes and a richer and contented life.


In our 40’s we often experience peri-menopause. We may skip periods, ovulate infrequently, experience mood fluctuations. These  symptoms may go on for years.

All the symptoms are messages to let us know the body is out of balance and in need of some help. Sometimes adjustments to your lifestyle is all you need – a slower pace, more rest, a change of diet.

However other times you may need some help and guidance to help your body balance again. Chinese medicine has a long history in women’s health and is a great place to start if you are interested in addressing your health concerns naturally and proactively.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance including hot flushes, heavy periods, irregular periods, mood swings, quick to anger, anxiety, sleeping issues and fatigue can be so disruptive to the quality of your life. If you are suffering please book a consultation to discuss your treatment options. This may include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, dietary therapy and lifestyle choices.


Menopause is a completely natural experience in a woman’s life. It is simply the cessation of your monthly moon. Your period. Your menstruation. And for some lucky women that is all they experience. For many other women it can be a traumatic upheaval in their lives full of debilitating physical symptoms, shocking emotional swings, a loss of womanhood and the feeling of being invisible. The amount of times I have heard – nobody prepared me for the changes I would experience….
