Menopause

 

Menopause is a normal, natural part of a woman’s life that is usually experienced in her mid-late 40s or early 50s. It is often a time of change both physically and psychologically where women either need or appreciate some form of assistance.

During peri-menopause (the onset of symptoms to the last menstrual period) and menopause, women can experience a range of symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, menstrual changes, breast tenderness, vaginal dryness, urinary frequency, joint aches, tiredness, anxiety, headaches, irritability, decreased libido, dry skin and depression.

Our practitioners have years of clinical experience supporting women through this time of change and challenge. We do not aim to ‘treat’ the ‘problem’ of menopause; instead we aim to ease the symptoms of this natural reproductive process through changes to nutrition and lifestyle and via the use of natural remedies.

Where conditions are more serious, we work in conjunction with your doctors. Orthodox tests, diagnosis and medicine are used to complement the natural therapy approach and seek to address and heal any issues rather than overriding them.

Our integrative approach may also include referrals to additional alternative health services such as acupuncture to provide holistic, comprehensive care.
