Acupuncture for Digestive Disorders

Hong Ma, R.Ac., R.TCMP - Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner

Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to naturally treat many acute and chronic disorders of the digestive system.


Acupuncture can help in treating many digestive disorders including:

  • Gas/ bloating

  • Heartburn / acid reflux

  • Sensation of a lump in the throat

  • Gastrointestinal tract bleeding

  • Inflammatory conditions

  • Hiatus hernia syndrome

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea


How does acupuncture treatment help?

Digestive disorders may be caused by a variety of factors, including chronic stress, overeating, or eating too many high-fat foods. Acupuncture can treat digestive imbalance by reducing stress and regulating the endocrine and nervous system hyperactivity that often accompanies digestive disorder patterns.


Using acupuncture for digestive problems works by nourishing related organs, reducing inflammation of the stomach and pancreas and improving digestive functions. It can also help increase gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation, reduce gastric acid secretion, regulate small and large intestine function, and restore stomach acidity to normal levels.


If you've tried conventional medicine to keep digestive problems in check without success, consider acupuncture, which is an effective natural treatment without side effects.
