When I started seeing Leah Davida (aka world’s best Encinitas acupuncture provider) I went because I wanted to know how to stop hot flashes. I am old enough where peri-menopause was rearing its ugly head.
What is a hot flash? Well, I was waking up every night at around 4:00 a.m. drenched in sweat. I couldn’t get cool. I would get up, walk around, stand in front of a fan waiting for the hot flash to pass. It wasn’t over, though, even when it would pass. After I cooled down, the sweat froze to my body and I jumped back under the covers to get warm again. By that time, I was awake and annoyed. I needed to know how to stop hot flashes and I wasn’t about to go the hormone route. Because of previous conditions, hormone treatment wasn’t even available.
How to stop hot flashes
- Leah Davida and her amazing acupuncture changed my world. I know it is just anecdotal evidence but it worked amazingly well for me. I find I have many more hot flashes in the summer and that is when I crank up my visits to Leah Davida. Acupuncture for hot flashes worked. It lessened the frequency and duration of my hot flashes.
- Studies on how to stop hot flashes show acupuncture works. That is right – there are multiple studies that all agree that acupuncture reduces the number and severity of hot flashes. The best is that the effects of the acupuncture for hot flashes seems to work for up to three months. Bonus!
- Leah Davida’s therapeutic massage relieves hot flashes, too. Leah does this in two ways. First, she uses acupressure meridian points in the massage to enhance the benefits of the acupuncture for hot flashes. Second, there is a direct correlation between hot flashes and stress. Therapeutic massage is proven to reduce stress. Any time you can reduce stress, you get the benefit of reducing your hot flashes.
When you get a treatment from Leah, you get real relief. You get acupuncture for hot flashes and a therapeutic massage. You will never be the same again… of course, I am being a bit dramatic… I am Peri-menopausal, after all… but not that dramatic, she is pretty amazing. Don’t take my word for it, call her and try it out for yourself!
