The beneficial effect of acupuncture on menopause symptoms can last for at least 21 weeks post-treatment, according to a Danish research team. Data was analysed from a randomised controlled trial where women with moderate to severe menopausal symptoms were offered weekly acupuncture treatment over five consecutive weeks. Acupuncture was administered at Zhongji REN-3, Guanyuan Ren-4 and bilateral Ququan Liv-8, Sanyinjiao SP6 and Yinlingquan SP-9. A statistically significant, sustained long-term beneficial effect of acupuncture was found for hot flushes, sweating and sleeping issues, lasting up to 21 weeks post-treatment.
