Abstract

I am a general practitioner with both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Medical Acupuncture qualifications. My research focuses on acupuncture's effectiveness in treating hot flushes after the menopause. In my study 360 women with hot flushes will be divided into two groups with one group receiving acupuncture and another group receiving "placebo" or "sham" acupuncture. We will compare number and severity of hot flushes in both groups at the end of the treatment period.
