During the assessment, having someone listen to me and confirm that I have in fact started my menopause journey was a relief, having this confirmed felt like a weight lifted off of me.Your caring and professional manner while guiding me through the check list was refreshing, I didn't feel spoken down to and came away from the session invigorated now I know for certain what's going on inside myself, I'm not becoming forgetful, short tempered, emotional and irrational for no reason. Your positivity about the menopause was encouraging, it wasn't all doom and gloom, you provided me with some useful information and tools to make my journey as easy as possible. I felt supported and ready to start this next chapter of my life. I downloaded the Balance app and have been browsing through it to see what looks interesting/helpful.I had a great sleep after my visit and no napping this weekend either, so that was a surprise. Also my mood was very positive and light on Thursday and Friday at work which I am putting down to the acupuncture and massage. Some of the guys at work commented that I was different on Thursday but they weren't sure what it was.
Anne, I want to thank you once again for seeing my last week, I arrived anxious and unsure, then left feeling empowered and ready to take control of this situation after our one to one session.
