The hormonal changes experienced during menopause cause some very specific changes in skin and body, but also some very general changes to your health, ranging from joint pain and muscle tension to an irregular heartbeat and decreased bone density.
In addition to the hormonal balancing touch therapies, there are lifestyle enhancements that can also help.
- Take up gentle resistance and weight bearing exercise to help improve bone density and overall fitness.
- Incorporate phytohormones (plant hormones) into your diet with foods like soy and oats as well as your skincare - we love evening primrose oil, soy and geranium oil.
- Don’t give up on sleep - even if you don’t actually sleep, make time for rest when you need it.
- Try supplements like calcium and vitamin D for joint health.

- Try to limit your alcohol and caffeine intake.
