What to expect
Although many women experience similar menopausal symptoms, the root cause for their discomfort can be different. Each treatment is tailored to your body's needs based on your East Asian Medicine diagnosis. Your practitioner may discuss options for herbal medicine treatments, acupuncture, lifestyle shifts, dietary suggestions, meditation practices and more.
The initial meeting with your acupuncturist will consist of a 90 minute consultation where you will go over your past and present health history as well as your current health goals. Your acupuncturist may use diagnostic methods such as pulse taking, observation of the tongue, face and body as well as abdominal palpation to decide what the most appropriate approach for your treatment will be. You will be given a treatment plan based on your body's unique and individual needs. Everyone's body responds differently and results do very from person to person. Some may need more treatment than others in order to achieve the results they desire but with time, consistency, and a positive mindset it is possible to start feeling better and achieve your health goals.
