Acupuncture and Herbs Can Help with a Wide Variety of Ailments

Stress and Emotional issues —

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be effective antidepressants, without any harmful side effects. Stress, insomnia and mood disorders, such as depression and anxiety, are all treatable with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. These treatments can help reduce stress and alleviate anxiety based panic attacks. In Chinese medicine, insomnia is symptomatic of an imbalance of our internal constitution that can also cause many different conditions such as brain fog, forgetfulness, lack of concentration and fatigue. Depression and anxiety can be the result of various underlying causes and once we find the root of your condition, we prescribe a custom treatment for you.

Allergies and Respiratory issues —

An allergy is the body’s immune system reacting to a variety of relatively harmless substances ranging from pollen and dust to animal dander. This reaction manifests as coughing, wheezing, sneezing, sinus congestion and sometimes asthma. Allergy medications may offer temporary relief from the symptoms, but they can’t cure the condition. The combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal supplements is very effective at treating allergy symptoms by getting to the root of the issue: a weakened immune system. In traditional Chinese medical thought, strengthening the lungs strengthens the immune system and vice versa. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture can strengthen the immune system and lungs, reduce inflammation in the nasal passages, clear up nasal congestion and stop itchy, watery eyes.

Pain Relief —

Acupuncture points stimulate the nervous system to activate endogenous chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. Some of the physiological effects observed throughout the body include increased circulation, decreased inflammation, relief from pain and muscle spasms and increased blood cell production which stimulates the immune system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
