How acupuncture with Crispin
might help you
A lot of women turn to acupuncture at this time of their lives as a means of lessening the often unwelcome symptoms that accompany menopause. Founded upon the principles that underlie Chinese Medicine, acupuncture chiefly sees the menopause as a manifestation of the natural decline of the energy (or Qi) associated with the kidneys. Thus treatments are often geared towards boosting kidney energy as well as alleviating any associated stress that might be present.
One of the strengths of acupuncture is in the tailoring of treatments to that unique individual and Crispin’s clinical experience has taught him that no two individuals are the same. He has acquired a long and varied experience of treating menopausal women and recently undertook and successfully completed a post-graduate gynaecology diploma at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.
