Our Services:
First Menopause Support Appointment

We offer an initial consultation at the centre which which gives you an opportunity to talk through your history and circumstances. This allows us to tailor a treatment plan to suit your individual needs and see how best we can support you.  We will start by taking a full history and talk about your life and lifestyle and look at any fine-tuning that may be helpful.  During the consultation we will suggest which therapies would be most useful to you. The Therapists at Southside Therapy Centre work as a team and will work together to tailor your treatment plan to your needs including reviewing your treatments and making any changes that may benefit you.

Acupuncture for Menopausal Symptoms

Acupuncture has been shown to reduce hot flushes and night sweats!!!!

It also helps balance hormones and return a state of balance at a time when women can sometimes feel quite out of sorts and even disconnected from their bodies. Acupuncture can be grounding and relaxing and reduce symptoms such as brain fog, anxiety and insomnia. Acupuncture can work well with digestion changes, urinary issues, joint pain and other physical symptoms that can occur when hormones are changing.
