IBS, reflux, bloating after meals, nausea, irregular bowel movements - we see it all in the clinic! Acupuncture can be an excellent support for people with digestive ailments. Often these issues can be chronic and require ongoing care to moderate the symptoms and help to manage flare ups. The Acupuncture Hub’s sliding scale payments and 7 day a week schedule make regular maintenance treatments a realistic long term option.
We commonly see that people who suffer with digestive ailments may also struggle with managing their stress and mental health. Science backs this observation with increasing evidence showing the presence of many brain chemicals (such as serotonin) being stored in our guts. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine regards our bodies as a whole, giving us tools to consider both mental and physical health when constructing a treatment for patients.
