Respiratory Disorders

Acupuncture for Asthma, Allergies, COPD, and Common Cold and Flu

Respiratory Disorders

From the common cold to more serious conditions like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have a long history of working well to reduce respiratory symptoms and strengthen the body’s immune system and overall function. For thousands of years, acupuncturists and alternative medicine specialists have been treating asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, sinusitis, and even allergies with acupuncture and other forms of Oriental Medicine naturally.

 

There is evidence that acupuncture and certain massage techniques relieve sinus pressure and inflammation, allowing the sinuses to properly fight bacteria and other germs. Cupping uses glass containers to activate the lymphatic system and release toxins. Gua Sha is a technique that applies repeated, even strokes with a massage tool to affected areas, restoring fluid movement. It may also be effective in reducing fever.
