One of the more common symptoms of perimenopause or menopause is poor sleep. As you might have heard, acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help with this transitory time and the host of symptoms that can accompany it. It does this without the side effects or outright dangers that taking hormone replacement can have. So for anyone wishing to forgo taking hormones, Chinese medicine is an effective and health promoting way to help. As far as helping sleep goes, acupuncture usually combined with a Chinese herbal formula taken at bedtime will usually help. We have a number of formulas that we have found over the years to be effective for helping you sleep deeper and better.
