ABC news recently reported on a small study examining the effects of acupuncture on hot flashes. The results were clear, however, that women receiving acupuncture experienced a dramatic reduction in the severity of their hot flashes. While it may sound lovely to many of us to have a free, brief vacation in the tropics after the New England winter we've been having, women who experience hot flashes can also experience insomnia and excessive sweating during a hot flash. These symptoms can range from non-existent to severe and may last for years.
