Acupuncture in Seattle for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Relief

Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, cramping, and gas. It may also lead to diarrhea, constipation or both. If you suffer from IBS acupuncture can be an effective and lasting treatment for you.

Is Acupuncture Helpful for Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Acupuncture is widely known for pain relief and management. Acupuncture is also an effective treatment for other medical conditions like IBS. Awakenings Acupuncture is a Seattle acupuncturist for irritable bowel syndrome management.

Acupuncture is a safe, effective medical technique that is thousands of years old. We use hair-thin, single use, sterile, disposable needles inserted in specific points of the body to alleviate the symptoms of many medical conditions, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Acupuncture alleviates pain and bloating and balances the digestive system, calming peristalsis in case of diarrhea and promoting movement in case of constipation.

According to Chinese medical theory, IBS occurs as a result of both weak digestion and Qi stagnation, commonly caused by stress. Acupuncture for IBS can both strengthen digestion and regulate Qi circulation specifically in the digestive system.
