Women in their forties often experience hot flashes, night sweats, foggy brain, poor concentration, insomnia, irritability, and fatigue. These are all common symptoms of perimenopause, triggered by a drop in the hormones estrogen and progesterone. The perimenopause acupuncture solution is safe, natural, and provides long-lasting relief. Learn all about it in today’s blog post.
Some women cruise through their forties without a care in the world – no adverse symptoms indicating that their menstrual cycle is coming to an end. Most women, however, will have some indications of the natural hormone changes occurring in their bodies. As mentioned above, typical symptoms of perimenopause include night sweats, hot flashes, memory and concentration issues, waking during the night with difficulty getting back to sleep, anxiety, depression, and sometimes debilitating fatigue. Symptoms and intensity vary from woman to woman.
Perimenopause Acupuncture Solution
When you come in for your first appointment, we will ask all about your current symptoms. Then we will feel your pulse and examine your tongue. There are 36 standard pulse qualities in Chinese medicine, each reflecting a different internal organ imbalance. The wrist pulse has many subtle qualities, which acupuncturists can identify. The tongue also provides essential information about digestion, metabolism, and overall health.
Armed with information about your particular symptoms, tongue, and pulse, we will create a treatment plan to address the imbalances responsible for your perimenopausal troubles. The fluctuations in hormone levels are normal and to be expected in a woman’s 40s. However, it is often not necessary to struggle through severe symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, and insomnia.
What Triggers Perimenopause Symptoms
Most of these symptoms occur as a result of the body’s reaction to hormone fluctuations. In other words, your body is trying to acclimate to the new hormone levels. Acupuncture speeds up this acclimation process, easing symptoms by restoring balance. For example, a decrease in estrogen triggers an imbalance called Kidney yin deficiency, resulting in hot flashes and night sweats. Acupuncture can boost Kidney yin, safely and naturally resolving excess heat and sweating.
Most perimenopause symptoms have their root in hormone imbalances. As acupuncture helps the body adjust to the new hormone levels, your symptoms will ease and eventually resolve.
What To Expect
All needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. Most acupoint locations are on the arms below the elbow and legs below the knees. The treatments are relaxing, with many patients falling asleep during their sessions. As you rest, the perimenopause acupuncture solution works at the organ level to restore balance to your body. Afterward, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

Jade is the best!! I went from having 10-15 hot flashes a day…. Now I might get one every now and then. I’m so happy.
My husband used to be the furnace in bed every night and I was always freezing. When I turned 50 I became the furnace, and I was not happy about it! I was on my way to get hormone replacement when I got to reading about possible side effects. With that option gone, I turned to acupuncture. My niece had gone to Raleigh Acupuncture for migraines and raved about it, so I made an appointment. Holy smoke! This stuff really works!! It didn’t take but two visits before I started feeling cooler. By the time they got done with me I was back to my normal “always cold” self! Ladies, you owe it to yourselves to try this.
At 45 I started going through menopause. My periods became irregular for the first time in my life, with much more heavy bleeding and painful cramping. I started getting hot flashes and night sweats, was more irritable, and generally did not feel well. I read how acupuncture could treat menopausal syndrome (which I seemed to fit to the tee) and looked around for a practitioner. Raleigh Acupuncture seemed to have a lot of experience in this area so I gave them a try. They treated me for three months and dramatically reduced my symptoms. They used the acupuncture and chinese herbs. I am amazed at how good I feel, even better than before this trouble started in the first place. I never would have thought that acupuncture could make such positive changes in my health.
I went through menopause 10 years ago and was still having hot flashes and night sweats. I thought it would last the rest of my life. Then I tried acupuncture and within two months they were gone. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture!
I’ve been going to Raleigh Acupuncture for 4+ years. I first went to them because I was having problems with my monthly period lasting two weeks or more, hot flashes that were extreme, and all over pain from fibromyalgia, which is a chronic pain condition. I was in a state of depression and despair, unable to work, or do things I love to do, like working in my yard. On a good day, I could perform simple household chores, perhaps a little yoga, and that was all. My first few visits brought relief from hot flashes, terrible neck pain, and wrap-around pain in my ribs that restricted my ability to breathe comfortably. I felt this was a miracle as I had suffered for many years, and had no idea it was so easily remedied. This miraculous ride continued as I took Chinese herbs for aiding my menopausal symptoms, sinus problems, anxiety, and general pain. As time went on I began to depend on Raleigh Acupuncture for psychological strengthening as well. Nowhere else have I found anyone that really listens to what I have to say without thinking I was crazy. Today, as I sit and reflect, I am about to graduate from an intense two year program for Landscape Architecture Technology. I took a huge leap when I signed up for full-time classes when I was 50 years old. I have enjoyed great success, making one B in 64 credit hours, the rest were A’s! In February of 2011, I was in a car accident where I was sandwiched between a van and a school bus. I was able to continue school and finish the semester, I believe because of my acupuncture treatments. I contribute most of my academic success, emotional well-being, and diminished pain to Raleigh Acupuncture.
