As your body goes through the change there is potential for a disruption to homeostasis relating in particular to body temperature and emotional stability.
Symptoms such as hot flushes, insomnia, anxiety & depression have all been shown to respond to Acupuncture &/or Chinese Herbal Medicine.
Acupuncture delivered from when your cycle first starts to show signs of the change can largely negate the extent of the disruption.
