Can acupuncture help with my hormones?

It can be difficult to know what to do when you’re suffering with problems that are related to changing and out of balance hormones. Many people come to us as a last resort, feeling that they haven’t been properly listened to or that the treatment suggested hasn’t worked. And the key difference with our approach is that we want to get to the bottom of why your hormones are suffering. We take the time to listen and dig deep to get a full understanding of all areas of your life that could be impacting upon them. Some of the common problems we see in clinic include:

• Painful periods
• No periods
• Heavy periods
• Irregular cycles
• Peri-menopausal/menopausal problems
• Endometriosis
• Hormonal emotional imbalances, anxiety and depression

Acupuncture can help bring balance to hormones that feel out of whack, reduce stress and improve many of the side effects so many people experience, including insomnia, digestive issues, hot flushes, migraines, low energy, mood changes and vaginal changes, including dryness, thrush, itching, repeat UTIs, which are all too common. 

As with all our work we take the time to explain what is happening and why and what all the options are that you could access to help improve symptoms, these include nutrition, exercise and lifestyle information. We can also help you if you’d like to get blood tests done to check your hormone levels and what the results all mean.

“Having acupuncture with Hannah has helped so much with my PMT and mood swings. For years I have suffered with long cycles and have really struggled with low mood for weeks before my period comes. Now my cycles are down to 30 days and my mood is so much better. I sleep better and take better care of myself. I have so much more understanding of my hormones and how they can affect me. She is kind and caring and I would really recommend.”
