Menopause usually occurs around 51 years of age however, for clinical reasons menopausal symptoms can occur at any time. The changes in hormone levels during peri menopause and menopause particularly the decline in oestrogen, lead to acute menopausal symptoms. Many women experience vasomotor symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats. Some women also report vaginal dryness and psychological symptoms, including anxiety, tiredness, poor sleep, forgetfulness and mood swings.
Menopausal symptoms are very common, and depending on their severity, can have a major impact on quality of life, health and wellbeing, as well as productivity.
"I went to Colette as I was suffering with extreme menopausal hot flushes. She was very considered in her approach and empathetic to my situation. After an initial zoom consultation, I had 7 sessions, all of which were very relaxing. Colette’s clinic is totally COVID secure with full screening, temperature checks, masks and hand sanitiser. I’m delighted to say I began feeling the benefit of the acupuncture almost straight away and my condition significantly improved between the first and last session."
"Excellent outcome. Night sweats and hot flushes reduced by 80% within 4 weeks of treatment. Excellent guidance on nutrition and diet. It has changed my life. Highly recommend Collette Assor and clinic"

"My Aunt had had some success with acupuncture for hot flushes, and after trying various herbal treatments and other therpaies with limited success, I decided that I wanted to try acupuncture. I was recommended to go to Colette by someone who had also had acupuncture with her for menopause symptoms. For me, the primary symptoms which I wanted to minimise were the hot flushes during the day and the night sweats. I had eight treatments with Colette over the course of a few months, and definitely noticed a reduction in both the frequency and severity of the flushes and night sweats. Colette was very professional and started each session with a discussion on how I had been since the last treatment, and involved me directly in decisions about my treatment. She seemed up to date with current research, and is clearly a highly experienced, knowledgeable and professional therapist, with an easy manner and clear communication skills. Oh, and it was so relaxing that I had a lovely sleep during each treatment!"
