Indegestion and Acupuncture

For temporary relief from indigestion and constipation, sure, you can take an over-the-counter pill, and yes, there are prescriptions available too.

They can provide temporary relief of your symptoms. They can help with the gas, heart-burn, bloating, cramping, and diarrhea, but they are only temporary. If your condition is chronic, (meaning it has been going on for more than a couple of weeks), you may need to look into going a little deeper than just popping a pill.

We all know that diet and activity are very important in maintaining your digestive health. We could probably all do better in that department couldn’t we?

There is more you can do to help balance your digestion and relieve your symptoms. Acupuncture works wonders with almost all digestive problems. It can be combined with other therapies, or you can try needle-free therapies on their own. An acupuncturist can also offer abdominal cupping therapy to help relieve gas and constipation.

It is always advised that a person also see their medical doctor to rule out any complications, but if you are suffering and looking for relief, you owe it to yourself to see an acupuncturist. Many people have great success with as little as 3 to 4 treatments.

Acupuncturists can do much more than just poke needles into people!

Acupuncture for Knee Pain

Knee pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek acupuncture.

If you’ve every had a sore knee, you know how debilitating it can be. You can’t sit down, you can’t stand up, you can’t walk it out, and you might not be able to sleep through the night either.

Anti-inflammatory drugs can help, but if you’re like most people, you are worried about the long-term effects of taking so many medications.

I am very honest with my clients. I tell them that what I do, will help to reduce inflammation, improve energy flow and circulation,improve range of motion and reduce pain. If you have cartilage damage or bone damage, I am not going to be able to take that away. I always advise that you seek the advice of a medical doctor about what to do next with your knee pain. With their help, you can decide if you are able to continue with exercise and complimentary health practices, or if you should think about further medical treatment.

I have several clients who come for acupuncture treatment to help ease their symptoms while awaiting surgery. It can take months to wait for arthroscopic surgery or for a knee replacement, so acupuncture is a great way to help you to feel better and stay in the best shape you can be in while waiting for surgery, and for helping to speed your recovery after surgery.
