Acupuncture can treat many digestion issues

As a traditional holistic practice, acupuncture evolved through a “whole systems” perspective and supports the digestive system through coaxing it toward normal functioning.  This “wholistic” approach is an often overlooked and underestimated complement to medical treatments for digestive conditions.

When combined with exploring changes in diet and lifestyle, the subtle and cumulative effects of acupuncture can set the stage for natural healing of stomach or bowel problems.

We customize each patient’s treatment based on their unique set of health circumstances and apply traditional principles of Oriental Medicine to support the body’s underlying function and ability to heal.

Research has shown that acupuncture can exert some large whole system effects through the autonomic nervous system. Generally speaking, acupuncture promotes the “rest and digest” system, also known as the parasympathetic nervous system, and it diminishes the reactivity of the “fight-or-flight” system, also known as the sympathetic nervous system.

Some digestive conditions commonly treated with acupuncture include:

Irritable bowel sydnrome (IBS)

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Nausea – Chemotherapy Induced

Nausea – Pregnancy Induced

We also regularly have success in treating patients for:


Chronic loose stools



Crohn’s Disease
