Acupuncture for Symptoms of Perimenopause and Menopause
Acupuncture is a safe, natural, and effective way to manage menopausal symptoms. Acupuncture for women’s health has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of conditions, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and insomnia. Studies demonstrate the efficacy of acupuncture in treating hot flashes, night sweats, and other hormonal symptoms.
Personalized Herbal and Nutraceutical Formulas
We create personalized herbal and nutraceutical formulas to address the specific needs of each patient. Our formulas are sourced from the highest quality ingredients available and are tailored to each patient’s individual needs. These formulas can help manage menopausal symptoms, support hormone balance, reduce stress and improve overall health and wellbeing.
Dietary and Lifestyle Recommendations
Diet and lifestyle changes greatly affect our body’s ability to function smoothly as hormones fluctuate. We work with you to create a personalized dietary and lifestyle plan that addresses your specific needs. We may recommend dietary changes, such as adding more whole foods and reducing processed foods, or lifestyle changes, such as stress management techniques or specific types of exercise. We collaborate with other nutrition and exercise professionals when necessary to build you the team you need.
Functional Medicine Testing
Functional medicine testing can help identify underlying imbalances that may be contributing to menopausal symptoms. We may recommend testing for hormone levels, nutrient deficiencies, or digestive health to address your specific needs.
At San Francisco Acupuncture Group, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care and the best possible outcomes. Helping you gain more vitality and joy in your life is our best reward.
