Acupuncture for Side Effects of Breast Cancer Treatment

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » Acupuncture for Side Effects of Breast Cancer Treatment

Acupuncture has long been used to treat hot flashes in perimenopausal and menopausal women.  Now, researchers in Norway have found acupuncture to be helpful in treating hot flashes caused by Tamoxifen, a common treatment for breast cancer.

Real acupuncture performed better than “sham” acupuncture, relieving hot flashes both day and night by 50%.  Benefits continued for at least three months after the last acupuncture treatment.
