Through hormonal imbalances, many women experience a compromised quality of life due to excessive and irregular periods, cramping, headaches, hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings and foggy brain, whether they are premenopausal, perimenopausal or menopausal. Many women are seeking natural and holistic approaches to addressing symptoms.

“As acupuncture is becoming more and more mainstream, we are seeing an uptick in women who are coming to us to discover its capability to treat hormonal imbalances,” says Dr. Harish Rai, of the Living Tree Center for Healing.

“This 3,000-year-old practice has a place in modern medicine. We are able to reconnect brain and body function.”

In a study that took place at the University of Copenhagen, a group of menopausal women were treated over a five-week period with either standardized Western medical acupuncture, or no acupuncture. All in all, a whopping 80 percent of women who had acupuncture said they felt the treatment reduced their menopausal symptoms.

Dr. Rai, along with Living Tree Center’s Founder Dr. Nigel Brayer, are experts at placing the tiny needles along the points of energy to redirect it.

They report treatment is spread over about 10 to 12 sessions, depending on the severity of the symptoms, and that after the initial sessions, patients might need maintenance work periodically.
