Hot Flashes

Hormonal changes at menopause can cause women to experience these dramatic fluctuations in body temperature. The hormonal system is considered a deeper or Yin aspect of the physiology. Acupuncture can support the hormonal system and the Yin, thereby helping lessen or eliminate hot flashes over time. Strengthening the Yin however is not a “quick fix”. It often takes 6 weeks to 3 months to begin to see changes when treating menopausal symptoms.
