Acupuncture for Menopause and Women's Health

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

Mood swings.


Hot flashes.

Weight Gain.


For many women, menopause can be a rough time. Symptoms like weight gain, insomnia, mood swings, urinary infections, night sweats, hot flashes, irritability, and weaker bones can feel unbearable. At an average of 4-5 years, these and other menopause symptoms can greatly impact a woman’s life.

To make matters worse, women struggling with menopause symptoms have few options to alleviate their symptoms. Although traditional hormone therapy can be effective, it can come at a very high price. Hormone replacement therapy has been associated with an increased risks of breast and uterine cancer, heart attack, and stroke.

The good news: acupuncture can help.

Acupuncture has been found to balance hormones naturally - and without harmful side effects.

Research examining menopausal women found that acupuncture could significantly reduce symptoms of menopause. Benefits included significant improvements in hot flashes, mood, night sweats, frequency and/or severity of sweating, energy/fatigue, skin and hair issues, and sleep issues.

In addition to promoting balance hormones, others benefits of acupuncture include chronic and acute pain, insomnia, mood, stress, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, smoking cessation, and autoimmune issues.

Acupuncture has been found to be especially beneficial for many women’s issues, including:
