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.
“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 Japanese integrated therapy and stress reduction techniques, acupuncture can nourish and strengthen related organs, minimize symptoms and contribute to medication-free digestive system health maintenance.
Acupuncture has demonstrated clinical effectiveness in managing the digestive side effects of chemotherapy, as well as digestive symptoms following anesthesia. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for digestive imbalance as well as a wide range of medical conditions.
