Soothes Menopause-Related Insomnia
Additional studies also gave kudos to acupuncture and its ability to encourage the sleep bug in the face of hormonal imbalance. It seems the holistic therapy may attempt to regulate hormones and reduce sleep problems—including restlessness, and menopause-related insomnia.
According to the theory behind acupuncture, hormonal system imbalances occur when the internal balance of Yin-Yang energy is disrupted. Acupuncture attempts to strengthen and rebalance the Yin-Yang equality within the body, restoring internal balance and hormone-related symptoms, like irritability.
Another effect of Yin-Yang imbalance, when fiery Yang energy overcomes cooling Yin energy the body can overheat, especially during sleep. This occurs due to Yin energy is weaning during menopause, which causes the body to be unable to cool itself down as quickly.
Acupuncturists who treat menopausal patients using a short series of regular appointments (i.e., weekly), many women reported an noticeable increase in energy levels as well as a decrease in menopausal fatigue due to raging hormones.
Spider and Varicose Veins
Acupuncture has been long credited with opening pathways and improving circulation throughout the body. So it’s no surprise that the instance of spider and varicose vein development would be greatly reduced thanks to overall improvements in blood circulation from regular acupuncture treatments.
