Menopause occurs naturally at an average age of 50 and involves the natural cessation of menstruation.
Many women feel very little symptoms apart from noticing that their periods gets scantier, fewer until they disappear all together. They may feel more sensitive or warmer but don’t feel overwhelmed by it. That is the ideal menopause that most women would wish for.
But it’s not always the case. Menopause is a bit like periods. You want them unoticed, pain free, stress free. But some women don’t have it that easy. While some women may experience few uncomfortable symptoms, some women may experience extreme, unbearable symptoms. Again, just like the periods.
The list of what women may experience during that period of their life is long: hot flushes, insomnia, inability to concentrate, depression, memory loss, headaches, anxiety, nervousness, sleep disruption, fatigue and irritability. But also intermittent dizziness, palpitation, nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, cold hands and feet and weight gain. Finally, the large reduction in oestrogen leads to changes in the lower genital tract. Therefore women tend to lose pelvic muscle tone, develop urinary incontinence, cystitis, vaginitis, and loss of libido.
So life can become, from one year to another, a nighmare.
The answer is often HRT which saves lots of women, let’s face it. But acupuncture, reiki and womb massage (also called fertility massage) may also help making that sensitive transition in women’s life.
Acupuncture, reiki and womb massage are an amazing way to help women shift from one major period of their lives to the other.
It helps balancing the hormones, lower their stress and reconnect with their body and who they truly are.
It also reduces the hot flushes, lower the anxiety, calm and improve sleeping.
