Is Acupuncture a Useful Treatment for People Suffering Menopausal Symptoms?
Common symptoms of the menopause include hot flushes, sleep disturbances, fatigue, joint pain and cognitive changes amongst others. Hot flushes are one of the most widely reported symptoms and a considerable number of women find their quality of life negatively affected.
While hormone replacement therapy can offer effective treatment for menopausal symptoms, it has significant side effects and potential long-term health issues that make it an unsuitable choice for many women. In contrast, acupuncture is generally viewed as a safe therapy with no negative side effects. It’s also usually affordable and widely available.
