Acupuncture for Hot Flashes in Women with Breast Cancer
Acupuncture has been used for 5000 years as part of Chinese medicine. It's known in America for pain management.

Acupuncture can help women get through menopause more comfortably.

Women facing breast cancer can't take hormones to address hot flashes and menopausal symptoms. Acupuncture helps with the hot flashes. Acupuncture also blocks the cortisol.

It boosts endorphins and improves sleep. Many women seek acupuncture for reproductive and hormonal issues.

About 50% of insurance companies reimburse for acupuncture. Check with your insurance provider to see if acupuncture is included in your plan.
