Acupuncture and Auricular Acupressure in Relieving Menopausal Hot Flashes of Bilaterally Ovariectomized Chinese Women : A Randomized Controlled Trial

Auricular Acupressure– The selected auricular acupoints : sympathetic (AH6a), shenmen (TF4), adrenal gland (TG2p), subcortex (AT4), endocrine (CO18), kidney (CO10), heart (CO15) and liver (CO12).

After the above acupoints were sterilized with 75% alcohol, pieces of plaster with magnetic beads of proper size and good quality were stuck to the acupoints, which were then pressed slightly until the patient had an aching pain, numbness, distention and a warm sensation. The patients were asked to press the acupoints by themselves six times a day for a 3 min duration each time. It was explained that the strength of the pressing should make the local auricle congestive, flushed, hot and achy. The auricular acupressure was alternatively conducted on the two ears every 2 days. The plaster with magnetic beads was exchanged for a fresh set once a week.
