Acupuncture for menopause

A recent study has found acupuncture treatments can reduce hot flushes associated with menopause and night sweats by up to 36%. These results can be maintained for up to six months after the treatment stopped.

The trial was funded by the National institute of health including 209 women between age 45 to 60 who had not had a period for at least three months. On average they experienced at least four hot flashes or night sweats in the prior two weeks before trials.

The study was published in the Journal of Menopause. Source: Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
