Natural Menopause Support in Yeovil

Supporting and empowering you to regain control of your health



From puberty to post-menopause:

Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture can be highly effective in navigating your hormonal journey from the onset of menstruation through to your post-menopausal years.

Treatment can help to ease period pains, regulate your cycle, reduce bloating or lighten a heavy flow. It can help with PMT, endometriosis, hot flushes, night sweats, bone health and the monthly roller-coaster of emotions. It can be supportive and nourishing through pregnancy and complements or offers an alternative to conventional medicine.

I offer natural menopause support in Yeovil, which ideally begins well before the onset of menopause so that you can enter your peri-menopausal years in a well-balanced way.

In recent years the menopause has become highly medicalised and whilst many women suffer from debilitating menopausal symptoms, I think it's important that we also recognise it as an empowering transition into our older years and that this needn't be a time for medical intervention.

Menopause can be accompanied by turbulent emotions and symptoms such as hot flushes, flooding, irritability, insomnia, exhaustion and the feeling that you can't cope and no longer know who you are. This can make the juggling act of life, family and work incredibly challenging.

As a post-menopausal woman, I have a particular interest in treating women through the menopause and beyond.

How treatment can help

Treatment can decrease or bring freedom from symptoms, whilst the opportunity to give voice to your concerns and fears in a safe and confidential environment can instil renewed hope and energy.

Daily herbal support backed up with acupuncture treatment and lifestyle advice specific for you, addresses underlying issues and hormonal imbalances. The menopausal support I provide offers a different approach to HRT and can run alongside HRT if hormone therapy is not ticking all the boxes.


A tailor-made herbal remedy will generally include 5-7 herbs to address your specific needs and will be altered as your symptoms improve. Your remedy may include:

Peony (Paeonia lactiflora)

An antispasmodic and astringent that can reduce heavy periods and perimenopausal flooding. It can be useful in the treatment of conditions such as endometriosis and fibroids.

Chaste Tree (Vitus Agnus-Castus)

A hormone regulator that can be beneficial in the treatment of perimenopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, vaginal dryness and depression. It can relieve PMT, regulate the menstrual cycle and enhance fertility.


A phyto-oestrogenic herb that can help to alleviate menopause symptoms. Known as “she who possesses a hundred husbands” it is a wonderfully nourishing and rejuvenative tonic. It soothes, cools and moistens when there is excess heat.
