Gastrointestinal conditions

Digestive disorders indicate disharmony between the body organs responsible for digestion. This disharmony is commonly caused by various lifestyle, emotional (excessive stress, anxiety, worry, etc.) and dietary factors, which put a strain on the digestive system. When prolonged over a period of many months or years, digestive disorder imbalances occur. Changes in lifestyle factors and diet modification is often integrated into the Chinese medical course of treatment. TCM corrects these imbalances and assists in regulating digestion.


“The origins of many chronic health problems can be traced to compromised digestive function”.


Specific acupuncture points increase gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation, and reduce gastric acid secretion, making acupuncture beneficial in treating general gastrointestinal symptoms. In conjunction with Chinese Herbal Therpapy, acupuncture can nourish and strengthen related organs, minimize symptoms and contribute to medication-free digestive system health maintenance.
