A recent 2012 study in Climacteric, the journal of the International Menopause Society, states that acupuncture can help those suffering from menopausal symptoms get a good night’s sleep. Insomnia tends to increase as women take that sometimes long, bumpy ride through menopause. Some women float through only happy that they no longer to have to curb beach days, while others trek through with concern over whether or not they will make it past that next hot flash.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture therapy on sleep parameters, depression symptoms and quality of life in postmenopausal women with insomnia.The study found that acupuncture helped women sleep better and feel better overall.
As a practitioner with over 5 years of clinical experience working with women who want their lives back, I could have told you that menopausal women LOVE acupuncture… because it works! It does the very things this study illuminates, the most important being overall improved quality of life. Interested in getting your life back?
