Acupuncture Can Reduce Hot Flushes by Half

Published on 3rd October 2016 in Daily Mail indicated that Acupuncture could reduce hot flushes by a recent research.

Almost half of women who experienced eight weeks of the treatment reported a 50 per cent decrease in hot flushes, a study found.

Lead researcher Nancy Avis, from Wake Forest University, North Carolina, said: 'Women bothered by hot flushes and night sweats may want to give acupuncture a try as a relatively low-cost, low-risk treatment.

'Women will know pretty quickly if acupuncture will work for them.

'Women who had a reduction in their hot flushes saw a benefit beginning after about three to four weeks of weekly treatments.'

Researchers examined different responses of acupuncture treatment in 209 women aged between 45 and 60.

The participants were either peri-menopausal or post-menopausal and had at least four hot flushes or night sweats each day.

Women were randomly selected to receive up to 20 acupuncture treatments within six months or to a control group.

Of the 170 women who received acupuncture, one in ten women had an 85 percent reduction in hot flushes by the eighth week of the study.

While nearly half reported a 47 per cent reduction over the same time frame.

However, a third showed only a minimal reduction of nearly 10 per cent in frequency of hot flushes.

And 4 per cent reported an increase in the frequency of their flushes.

The study was published in the journal Menopause.
