Are you a woman in your 40s, 50s, or 60s? Do you get hot flashes or night sweats? Do you tend to wake up during the night and find it difficult to fall back asleep? Are you more irritable lately? Do you feel drier, both inside and out? If so, you’re experiencing the classic symptoms of perimenopause.
You might still be getting your period, it might have become quite irregular, or it may have stopped. The Raleigh Acupuncture hot flashes treatment offers a comprehensive solution for this condition, and it is entirely different from what Western medicine has to offer.
A hot flash is a brief episode of flushing, sweating and a sensation of heat, often accompanied by heart palpitations and anxiety. Eighty percent of women experience hot flashes during the last year of their menstrual period or soon afterward.
Acupuncture Resolves Hot Flashes
Menopause is a natural change in your body. Our treatment does two things. First, it helps your body transition to the new hormone level. The body often takes time to adjust to new circumstances – like hormone changes. We see this with pregnancy. When a woman first becomes pregnant, she has morning sickness due to significant hormone changes in her body. Acupuncture resolves morning sickness by helping her body adjust to the new hormone levels.
A similar process occurs with hot flashes and night sweats triggered by dropping estrogen levels during perimenopause. So again, women are experiencing a significant hormone change, and their bodies have not adjusted to it. The result is a host of unpleasant symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and sometimes irritability.
Acupuncture Restores Homeostasis
Acupuncture helps your body adjust to the new normal, returning to homeostasis. The results are excellent – the unpleasant symptoms disappear! We select acupuncture points to bring your body back into balance. We also prescribe Chinese herbs to support the acupuncture treatment. The hot flashes significantly reduce and often resolve within three to nine treatments. Your body is again in harmony with your new hormone levels.
Recent Hot Flashes Case
A 48-year-old woman came to our clinic struggling with debilitating hot flashes and night sweats. In addition, she was waking at 3:00 am, unable to fall back to sleep. She was feeling anxious and stressed, which was a departure from her usual laid-back personality. Her doctor offered to prescribe hormone replacement therapy, but she didn’t want to take medications.
We treated her nine times with acupuncture, once a week. Within the first three sessions, her heat symptoms eased 50 percent. With each additional treatment, her condition improved until she was free of hot flashes and night sweats, her sleep improved, and she felt like her old self again. Acupuncture helped her body acclimate to the drop in estrogen brought on by perimenopause. Once adjusted, her body knew what to do – and the unpleasant symptoms resolved.
What To Expect
All needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. The treatments are relaxing – many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. Afterward, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

What our Clients are Saying
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.
