Are you going through menopause or know someone who is? If so check out this study.
In a nutshell, this study found 96% of the participants who received acupuncture experienced a decrease in hot flashes.
What are hot flashes? Hot flashes feel like a sudden rush of heat most commonly over the face, neck, and chest. They can cause sweating and leave you feeling cold after they've passed. Hot flashes can come anytime during the day but many women experience them during the night as well. Some women experience them once a week while others may experience them every hour.
The good news is that acupuncture and herbs can treat more than just the hot flashes. As acupuncturists we treat the whole body, not just the symptom. This means we strive to bring your body into homeostasis so that you feel good all around. Along with treating the hot flashes we can help improve the quality and quantity of your sleep, regulate your response to stress, improve your digestion and overall sense of well being.
