A new study done by Yale Universtity/University of Pittsburg, has shown a 30% reduction in hot flushes suffered by women as a result of their chemotherapy treatment of breast cancer. The acupuncture points that were used are traditional ones used for treating hot flushes and menapausal symptoms. The study found there was “a significant difference in the average physical quality of life” during acupuncture treatment. It has long since been widely accepted that acupuncture is an effective treatment of menapausal symptoms in general.
