Suffering from painful period cramping and other menstrual pain? A recent clinical trial showed acupuncture and moxibustion provided better outcomes to patients than the use of ibuprofen. The study looked at results taken over three menstrual cycles in both the acupuncture group and the ibuprofen group, with the final results showing that the acupuncture-receiving group had a total effectiveness rate of 96.8%, whereas the ibuprofen group only experienced 58.1% treatment effectiveness.

This study is part of a wider collection of research that helps to prove acupuncture’s effectiveness in treating conditions like menstrual pain. Acupuncture is extremely effective for both hormonal imbalances and pain treatment, making it an ideal option for menstrual pain relief.
