Get fast help for perimenopause hot flashes

Hot flashes are one of the most challenging parts of perimenopause. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the changes in hormone levels that occur during these years leading up to menopause can bring about a variety of symptoms that wreak havoc with your body's thermoregulation center—most notably, hot flashes. Lower levels of estrogen and progesterone can cause the brain to believe your body is overheating, triggering a hot flash in a misguided effort to get rid of excessive heat.

For those seeking help for perimenopause hot flashes, there are many potential options but few that are able to deliver relief when you need it most, in the moment a hot flash occurs. Hormone replacement therapy and prescription drugs may reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, but side effects make many women wary of these approaches. Natural remedies for perimenopause symptoms include yoga, meditation, and changes in diet and lifestyle, but these options are time-intensive and generally aren't able to help when you need immediate relief.

That's where Embr Wave® stands apart from other perimenopause solutions. As a body cooler device that you wear on your wrist, the Wave harnesses your body's natural ability to draw comfort from local thermal sensations, providing safe, natural, and highly discreet help for perimenopause hot flashes.

Embr Wave: temperature relief on your wrist

Embr Wave packs powerful thermal technology into a stylish and lightweight wearable device that operates completely silently, with no fans or moving parts. It uses a compact thermoelectric heat pump to generate pleasing warmth or coolness that is felt on the temperature-sensitive skin of your inner wrist. These thermal sensations activate a neural pathway to your brain that can provide natural relief and instant help with perimenopause hot flashes.

Waveforms: precise cooling for maximum relief
The Wave delivers warming or cooling sensations in carefully designed patterns called Waveforms. These Waveforms are precisely engineered to optimize relief for hot flashes as well as insomnia, stress, and other temperature-related conditions common during perimenopause. By applying just the right amount of warming or cooling at just the right time, Embr Wave takes advantage of a connection between the thermoreceptors on your inner wrist and the part of the brain that deals with emotion, stress, pleasure, and temperature. They respond to these localized temperature sensations by sending a feel-good message to your brain, which in turn triggers a change in the way you perceive temperature throughout your body.

How does a cool wrist translate to greater comfort?
Though you might not have realized it, you've probably already experienced your body's instinctual ability to rebalance its comfort in response to local temperature sensations. It's what's happening when you warm yourself up by cupping a hot mug of coffee in your hands, or how pressing a cold compress to your forehead can make your whole body feel cooler. The Wave harnesses this natural phenomenon in a precise and repeatable way, delivering on-demand relief and help for perimenopause hot flashes.

The symptoms of perimenopause

Perimenopause begins several years before the actual onset of menopause, when menstrual cycles end and the ovaries stop releasing eggs. During perimenopause, the body gradually begins to make less estrogen, causing many of the symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause. These include fatigue, irregular periods, lower sex drive, breast tenderness, and mood swings. On days when estrogen levels swing back up, women may experience perimenopause nausea. The most troublesome symptoms for most women, though, are hot flashes and night sweats.

The science around hot flashes isn't completely determined, but these episodes are believed to be related to fluctuating hormone levels that cause the brain to be highly sensitive to temperature changes. When your brain believes your body is overheating, it triggers hot flashes in an attempt to help expel heat quickly. During these incidents, blood vessels beneath your skin dilate to release heat, causing a burning sensation usually felt on your face, neck, and chest. Your heart rate may increase as well, causing feelings of anxiety. And your sweat glands may trigger excessive perspiration in an effort to help you cool down faster.

Some women have mild hot flashes over a few months, but for others, hot flashes can be severe and last for years or decades. These incidents are especially disruptive for women in professional settings, who may find it impossible to focus on their work, carry on with meetings, or lead presentations when a hot flash strikes. Embr Wave provides fast help for perimenopause symptoms with a technology that is convenient, effective, and highly discreet.

Embr Wave lets you use soothing warm or cool sensations whenever you need help feeling calmer and more collected during stressful times.

FAQs

What is perimenopause?

Perimenopause refers to the years leading up to menopause, the time when a woman's ovaries stop releasing eggs and she is no longer able to reproduce. During perimenopause, the ovaries gradually begin to make less estrogen, leading to symptoms such as hot flashes, irregular periods, trouble with sleep, fatigue, and mood swings. Perimenopause can last anywhere from a few months to 10 years.

How does Embr Wave help with perimenopause hot flashes and insomnia?

Hot flashes and insomnia caused by changing levels of hormones tend to be the most difficult symptoms for women during perimenopause. Embr Wave helps relieve hot flashes by generating a series of refreshingly cool pulses on the temperature-sensitive skin of your inner wrist. These sensations send a comfort signal to the part of your brain that deals with pleasure, stress, emotion, and thermoregulation, helping to rebalance your sense of temperature so you can recover quickly from a hot flash. When you're seeking perimenopause insomnia remedies, the Wave also offers special sessions that can help lull your body to sleep more quickly and allow you to rest comfortably through the night for up to 9 hours at a time.

Does the Wave change the body's core temperature?

No. Even during hot flashes, the body's core temperature is always around 98.6°F. Hot flashes merely change the perception of temperature by dilating blood vessels beneath the skin and activating the sweat glands. The Wave provides help for perimenopause symptoms by tapping into the body's natural ability to find general comfort in local thermal sensations, using concentrated cooling on the skin of the inner wrist to instantly start helping you feel cooler all over.
