From Puberty to Menopause...and all the parts in between


There are many natural cycles in a Woman's life from puberty to menopause. Ideally these physical transitions should be seamless with minimal disruptions to our everyday lives and emotions. However more and more women are finding these transitions uncomfortable, distressing and sometimes painful. Their emotions can also be affected causing havoc in their personal and professional lives. Women also report feeling isolated or not understood whilst going through these processes. They are often told that their symptoms are natural and they should 'learn to deal with them,' or 'it is all in your head.' However as a Chinese Medicine practitioner Sheira has learned that these symptoms often indicate an underlying imbalance and if treated early can often prevent or minimise the impact of more severe conditions.  Acupuncture can help regulate and balance your hormones and emotions enabling you to cope better.

Teenagers or women who have painful, irregular periods report their symptoms seem to change dramatically following regular treatments. They note a significant lessening or complete lack of pain and cramps, breast tenderness and PMT symptoms with regular Acupuncture treatments. Other conditions that show improvement following regular Acupuncture treatments include endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, PCOS.

Menopause can be a period of significant emotional change for many women. This combined with symptoms such as hot flushes, insomnia, thinning of hair and loss of libido can create much upheaval. There are many studies that show the benefits of having Acupuncture to help cope with these physical symptoms. Clients also report feeling more able to cope and less anxious about the little stresses that come with life.
