Co-founded by Brighton based Nikki Gatenby and acupuncturist Jo Darling, with Menopoised we’re on a mission to change the lives of menopausal women the world over – by supporting all women to have a positive menopause, naturally, with acupuncture inspired products.
100% of women go through the menopause, 80%* will experience life-limiting issues that directly affect mental health and personal relationships. Rarely are we poised and prepared for such an impact.
We understand menopause through Jo’s work with hundreds of menopausal women in clinic each year, and they know each women’s experience is unique. We also understand first-hand how hard menopause can be, because we’re menopausal too.
That’s why they’ve created a range of acupuncture inspired, naturally derived safe, effective, side-effect free products that treat a broad spectrum of issues, to ease women through their life transition. Our products are rooted in ancient wisdom and effectively proven through practice based evidence. So when your menopause is too hot to handle, Menopoised helps you get your cool back, naturally.
We have also led successful businesses for two decades and know the importance of women being able to live happy, healthy lives in order to thrive. Our approach and innovations are based in our belief in women and to give women a choice, to use naturally derived, powerful products to ease this life transition.
MENOPAUSAL WOMEN ARE HOT. AND WE’RE VERY BOTHERED
Symptoms of the perimenopause can start in a woman’s mid-40s, continuing on average for another 5-6 years, 10 years is not unusual. Hot flushes and night sweats can be particularly disruptive during this time.
Women over 50 are the fastest growing group in the UK workforce. And with more women thriving in their professions; in higher positions, on the board, founding businesses – it’s vital we support these women to continue doing their great work.
Many will know how it feels to sit in a (board)room when a hot flush hits, its bloody awful. And no-one wants to say anything because menopause is the last taboo.
SO, HOW MANY ARE SUFFERING IN SILENCE?
In 2019 there were over 4.3m women between the ages of 45-60 employed in the UK – that’s a lot of women who are about to start, are right in, or have been through menopause and all that it brings.
To cope with the additional stress, women are more likely to reduce their hours, turn down a promotion, move to a different role or may even be lost from the workplace altogether which can then have significant impacts on their lives.
One in four menopausal women considers leaving work and one in 10 actually do. For this to be happening within the fastest growing demographic of the workplace there is clearly something wrong.
This bothers us. A lot.
And we know we can make a difference – we are humbled by the feedback we have received about the life changing effect of our Menopoised® products.
