Yang Sheng Nourishment of Life Programme

The Benefits

“You may be just coping or you might feel not quite yourself and not sure why.  I can be your trusted guide; I’ve spent hours sifting through the masses of information out there, done specialist Biomedicine training, so that I can give you an unbiased view.  We can plan your route back to vitality and ageing well.”

For many women, changing hormones commonly starts in their 40s and 50s which can be up to 12 years before their periods stop and lead to numerous symptoms. Women’s risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, fractures, recurrent urinary tract infections, incontinence, painful sex all increase as their reproductive hormones decline.

Using acupuncture and Chinese Nourishment of Life or Yang Sheng wisdom these changes can be addressed to manage your perimenopause or menopause transition and improve your future health. In this 8 session programme we can address: hot flushes, nightsweats, aches and pains (arthritis, sciatica etc), insomnia, anxiety, low mood, migraines, loss of bone and muscle mass, difficult menstrual periods that aren’t usual for you.

You may benefit from new exercise ideas, better nutrition or taking supplements and stress reduction. I can connect you with the right experts to help you on this journey, together with lifestyle and diet advice from a Chinese Medicine perspective. As a member of the Newson Health Menopause Society I can help you navigate Hormone Replacement Therapy if this is the right option for you. This will include support to help you get the right advice and HRT from your GP.

How it Works

Before your consultation, the first step is for you to email me any relevant biomedical test results and for you to complete a Life and Symptom Diary before your first appointment.  Please download Dr Newson’s Balance App and complete the Journal (this is free and for women who have or don’t have periods). You will be able to email me a Health Report from the Balance App prior to your consultation.  Or complete Greene Menopause Questions and email or bring the results to your Initial Consultation. If either of these are not possible we can work out a programme from your consultation details.

At your consultation we’ll review any information, test results and medical history, your goals for treatment and create a programme with feedback, ideas and inspiration.

You will be asked to attend 8 weekly sessions. These will be set up at your initial consultation or after your introductory follow-up (4 weekly packages are available too). If you book a package immediately after your introductory follow up the cost will be reduced to whichever package of sessions you choose.  Sessions will be taken within 4 months of your initial consultation. Though this may be extended for holidays and sickness.  Packages are non-refundable though consideration will be given to exceptional circumstances. You can gift any remaining sessions to a friend.
