Menopause Treatment

Doctors have confirmed that acupuncture can reduce hot flushes and night sweats in women going through menopause,. Researchers from the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centre tested 209 menopausal women all of whom were experiencing at least four episodes of hot flushing and/or sweating per night. The results showed a reduction in symptoms of around 36 per cent, and the benefits continue for up to six months after treatment has stopped.
