Digestive disorders can be incredibly uncomfortable and even embarrassing for some people. Bloating, heartburn and acid reflux can make simply eating a meal a painful prospect, while struggles with irritable bowel syndrome or constipation can cause a great deal of physical discomfort. Fortunately, WellStream Acupuncture offers acupuncture treatments specifically tailored to help with these and other digestion issues.
While most people think of acupuncture for pain relief only, the ancient practice is actually a complete medical system for internal disorders as well, and is quite effective at treating digestive problems. By targeting points on the body with acupuncture treatments, many people find themselves with a vast reduction of their digestive symptoms – sometimes even finding complete relief.
Contrary to what you may guess, the points that offer the greatest relief for digestive issues are often located far from the stomach. Pressure points on the hand, wrist, elbow, knee and feet offer the greatest benefits and reduction of nausea symptoms, gas issues, indigestion, diarrhea, vomiting and much more.
The digestive tract is a core body system, and ensuring its proper function is vital to overall health. In fact, recent studies have shown that imbalances in the digestive tract can contribute to more global body conditions, such as chronic fatigue syndrome – a condition that physicians have been unable to definitively diagnose and treat for decades.
