Menopause is a condition that over 67% of women in the United States experience. It is a natural phase of a woman’s life and is part of her aging process. However, sometimes, menopause leads to symptoms that can be painful and distressful. The most popular way of treating the symptoms is with hormone therapy. However, this treatment has not without its disadvantages. If you want a safe and really effective alternative treatment for the relief of menopause symptoms, you should consider getting magnetic acupuncture.

What is Acupuncture?

A healing procedure practiced for several thousand years, acupuncture works on the theory that the human body possesses a life force known as qi that needs to be in balance and harmony for good health. Qi circulates throughout the body via channels known as meridians. This circulation can be controlled through the insertion of needles in different acupuncture points in the body. The traditional way of doing acupuncture is to insert needles into acupoints to help restore balance and normal qi circulation in the body.

For people who have a fear of needles, there is another type of acupuncture which uses magnets instead of needles. The magnets are applied on the acupoints to stimulate the meridians. This type of acupuncture, called magnetic acupuncture, uses devices to deliver various wavelengths of electromagnetic energy that can help diagnose and treat the symptoms of menopause.

The Symptoms of Menopause

Vaginal dryness, low sex drive, night sweats, mood swings, and hot flashes are the most typical menopause symptoms. Other symptoms some women may experience include digestive problems, joint pain, breast pain, headaches, gynecological problems, anxiety, depression, poor concentration and memory, insomnia, and fatigue. Most of these symptoms can be resolved by stimulating a number of acupoints in the hand.

How Does Magnetic Acupuncture Treatment Work?

With a Magnetic Wave Therapy machine, any problems experienced by the body can be addressed by stimulating certain acupoints in the hand. Some of these machines are designed to diagnose health conditions such as menopause and relieve their symptoms. The hand has several acupoints and each of these points is associated with several body functions. When these acupoints are stimulated, it can help restore balance to the circulation of qi in the body to relieve most, if not all, of the symptoms of menopause.

Western modes of treatment for menopause may involve the use of medications such as antidepressants, osteoporosis drugs, hormone replacement therapy, and even herbal remedies. Unfortunately, these drugs come with adverse side effects, which oftentimes compound the symptoms. However, with magnetic acupuncture, it is possible that all or most of the symptoms that afflict you are relieved within minutes. Overcome those night sweats and hot flashes and be in charge of your personal wellness with magnetic acupuncture, which is the acupuncture of the 21st century.
