Lots of you have sent a message to ask. However, before I answer, it’s important to explain why I’m here.
After spending the past couple of years researching groups that support women going through the menopause, it struck me just how many reinforce negative stereotypes. It doesn’t have to be that way.
I want to change the narrative, and that is the Menopausal Godmother’s mission. However, I’m not here to tell fairy tales, but to pass on friendly, factual advice that you can rely on and with the help of other godmothers.
So, back to the introduction.
My name is Emma Guy, and I am 51-years-old. In 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and after a successful mastectomy and reconstruction of my right breast, I was plunged into a surgical menopause. For good measure, every one of the 37 symptoms came rushing at me!
Fortunately, one of my many job roles – I guess you could say that I’m a ‘multipreneur’ – equipped me with some of the tools to cope.
Let me explain.
To date, I have practiced as an acupuncturist for close to a decade in my own clinic; Acupuncture That Works. I have also spent six years working in two hospices, delivering acupuncture to over a thousand women going through the menopause.
In 2013, I created the Guy Protocol, an acupuncture treatment devised primarily to help those same ladies. I have continued research to support its development, something I write about in a chapter of my first book – due for publication soon.
Meanwhile, Acupuncture That Works continues to grow. It is now a multi-discipline practice delivering, reflexology, reiki, and massage alongside acupuncture.
Last year, the team celebrated their proudest moment when we were named UK Acupuncture Clinic of the Year by judges for the Global Health Pharma Awards.
