Are you struggling with hot flashes?

Are you struggling with hot flashes? They’re a very common complaint among perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. Perhaps acupuncture might relieve the problem. A recent study indicates that for about 50 per cent of women, eight weeks of acupuncture can reduce the frequency of hot flashes by almost half. It’s well worth a try as a relatively cheap and low-risk treatment option. If it works for you, you should expect to see the benefits after about three or four weeks.
