Case Studies

chief complaint: menopause

A 52 year old woman complained of hot flashes for 2 years. She also complained of poor sleep, PMS, and fatigue. When she originally came to acupuncture for low back pain, we were able to clear up the back pain easily and then all her symptoms of menopause as well. Sinus congestion and heartburn also responded to acupuncture. She was treated weekly for a few months and then came for tuneup sessions every few months when she became tired or stressed. She responded beautifully to an herbal formulation that she used periodically to maintain her good results.
