Alternative Medicine for Menopause

Acupressure and Acupuncture

Pressure applied to specific points on the hands and feet can help stimulate the ovaries, uterus, and adrenal, pituitary, thyroid, and parathyroid glands to balance hormone production and reduce hot flashes. Prolonged menstruation can be controlled by applying pressure to the insides of both legs, five inches below the knees.

Besides releasing energy blocks and rechannelling energy, the needles can also stimulate the release of pain relieving endorphins, the natural analgesics found in the spinal cord, brain, and pituitary gland, by the body. Acupuncture provides a feeling of improved vitality and well-being while encouraging the body to balance and heal itself.

Acupuncture can alleviate many menopausal symptoms by rebalancing the hormonal system, especially headaches and migraines, hot flushing, heavy flooding periods, back pain and sagging skin tone. Heavy and erratic menstrual bleeding in perimenopausal women can be relieved by this technique. Also relieves the pain and headache associated with menstruation. Acupuncture also has positive effects on insomnia and stress. Treatment can also improve the mobilization of chi to the nervous system to aid poor memory and concentration.

A Swedish study of 21 women with menopausal hot flashes found that acupuncture significantly reduced symptoms, with its effects lasting at least three months after treatment had ended. Acupuncture may used alone or in combination with herbs and other remedies. Some alternative practitioners suggest that acupuncture affects aspects of the nervous system that give rise to hot flashes.
