A randomized trial of 100 menopausal women having at least 3 episodes of hot flashes daily, found that acupuncture significantly reduced the occurrence of hot flashes and sudden sweating. Acupuncture treatment also significantly improved other symptoms such as sleep disorders, tightness in the chest, irritability, bone pain, and feelings of depression. (Baccetti et al, 2014) In another randomized controlled trial involving 60 women suffering from menopausal irritability, acupuncture was found to be more effective than the medication diazepam.
