Researchers believe acupuncture may help cure women’s lack of libido, claiming the Chinese treatment helped every woman who participated in the research.
Twenty-four female volunteers — between 28 and 45 and with regular sex partners — were recruited for the Chinese study, published in the journal Sexual Medicine in August.
All of the women involved suffered sexual dysfunction, or persistent problems stopping a person from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity, thought to affect around 43% of women and 31% of men in the US.
The women underwent two to three 30-minute sessions a week, with acupuncture needles inserted on the top of their head, stomach, above their ovaries, under their knee, on the ankle, foot and lower back.
After the treatment, all the women saw an improvement. The desire was the biggest improvement, with 23 out of 24 women saying they noticed a difference and 100% of the cohort saying they were more aroused.
Researchers believe that the treatments improve estrogen!
