Valley Acupuncture

From teens to post menopause.

The gentle approach of traditional acupuncture means treatment can be helpful to women of all ages with a variety of conditions. You may be looking for help with a diagnosed condition that affects your health in your teens, twenties and thirties. Into your 40s and 50s you may need relief from menopausal symptoms. Whatever your age, or symptom, acupuncture aims to restore your body`s natural balance, helping you to feel more in control and therefore function better.


Post Natal Acupuncture: Helping you recover after baby is born

Traditional Chinese Medicine holds the view that after the delivery of baby, the mother should rest and recover her energy that has been depleted during labour. When caring for your little one this can sometimes be difficult to achieve. Therefore, help is at hand in the form of traditional acupuncture which aims to balance your system physically and mentally. The benefits of acupuncture during the post natal phase can include increased energy levels, improved sleep, stabilised mood and reduced pain levels. Many women find acupuncture helpful not only in the weeks after delivery but up to 12 months after.

Menopausal symptoms

Acupuncture is powerful yet gentle at the same time. Before treatment, I was angry on a regular basis as well as sad, high, low and tired. With acupuncture I feel more energized but also relaxed, on an even keel. Hot flushes are fewer and emotions are calmer. I am honoured to have a superb therapist and feel blessed to have acupuncture therapy. For women out there, who feel completely out of control, try acupuncture, you will be amazed how much better you feel and I recommend it whole heartedly.
Menopausal symptoms

Acupuncture was recommended to me by my sister in law. I didn’t like the idea of HRT because of all the negative reports in the news. At the time I was suffering from hormonal migraines quite regularly, I was also experiencing hot flushes and night sweat. My sleeping pattern was quite erratic which was making every day functioning quite difficult. Mood swings were an issue too. After my first treatment with Louise, I stopped experiencing the migraines and I have not had once since. The hot flushes are considerably reduced and the night sweats are more bearable because they are less frequent. My sleeping pattern has improved as well, therefore so have the mood swings. I am still receiving acupuncture treatment and I find it has helped me with menopause symptoms.
Menopausal symptoms

I attended Valley Acupuncture on recommendation. I had started the menopause and did not want to go down the route of HRT. I had night sweats, which disturbed my sleep, leaving me irritable the day after. I was suffering from low mood, lack of energy, downright feeling of confusion, feeling old, and wondering all of a sudden where my zest for life had gone. Louise took my medical history and not only did she listen to me, she took the time to explain what was going to happen. She was kind, caring and an ultimate professional. Ladies if you are wondering if acupuncture will work for you, stop wondering and give it a go. Louise will do her best to ensure that you are looked after to the best of her abilities. The night after the treatment I had no sweats, the morning after my zest for life was back. I cannot recommend this lady enough.
