Male: We’ve got Novella, a licensed acupuncturist from El Leon Spa with Chellena back in our own med spa. So acupuncture is used for a lot of things nowadays. Novella, what is theory behind why it works for hot flashes. Novella: In theory, traditional Chinese Medicine we use specific points that will restore and regulate hormonal balance and we also use specific points that will cool the internal body temperature. So here, I am using two specific points we have kidney 3 and spleen 6 that is used very commonly for this condition. Dr. Lisa: I actually use this in my spa because you know it’s great to have many, many options for women. All women are different. Some can’t use hormones or even these alternative things that act like hormonal fighter because of breast cancer issues or things like that. And that’s when a lot of times use alternative methods. It really works. Male: Chellena how are you feeling? Chellena: Actually I feel the stimulation and I thought the pricking would be a lot worse but it doesn’t feel bad. I mean it definitely worth me getting the treatment done so that I can have some relief without having to do the hormone replacement. So this is great. Male: I think Novella is going to actually give you a free day spa pass so you can get some further treatment. So thank you both for being here.
