Acupunc­ture eases pe­riod pain

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Acupunc­ture can help al­le­vi­ate pe­riod pain and re­duce the need for painkillers, a study by Aus­tralian and New Zealand re­searchers has found. The small study of 74 women aged be­tween 18 and 45 found that more than half had at least a 50 per­cent re­duc­tion in the sever­ity of their pain af­ter three months of treat­ment. Pe­riod pain, or dys­men­or­rhea, is more com­mon in women in their early 20s.
