Peri-Menopause & Menopause

Work With Ashley

Menopause is a natural and event that occurs in every womans life. It occurs once the body has not had a period in over 12 months. The transitional period known as Peri-menopause can begin at anytime after 35 years of age.
During this time, the hormones may begin to have subtle fluctuations having little to no affect on the body, however at some point you may experience more and more symptoms that suggest that your body is changing and preparing you for the next phase of your life.
This is an exciting initiation propelling towards creating a life that you truly love!
Rather than try to ignore it, your body, mind and heart are calling you inward to work with what is showing up so that you may navigate this time of your life with ease, grace & flow.
Every body is unique and so is your specific journey through peri-menopause and menopause.
