Acupuncture can help alleviate your menopausal symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, fatigue, irregular periods, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, and other menopause related symptoms.
A study on acupuncture for menopause reported by ABC News revealed that women who received acupuncture showed significant drops in the severity of their hot flashes.
“Researchers suggest the reason why acupuncture may work for women suffering from hot flashes is that the treatment is able to boost the production of endorphins and that could help stabilize body temperature.”
