The review, published in Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, includes the results from a 2016 study which found almost half of 170 women receiving acupuncture treatments for six months saw the number of hot flushes they suffered cut in half. Looking at studies from 2012 to 2016, it concluded that acupuncture reduces the frequency and severity of hot flushes and improves quality of life.
