IF you have digestive issues, acupuncture could be your saviour. Acupuncture has been aiding people with digestive issues for thousands of years.

As acupuncture addresses healing from a holistic perspective, it can be said that a healthy digestive system is the key to a healthy life.

Digestive disorders vary widely and can present with a range of problems such as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, nausea or vomiting, chronic constipation or diarrhoea, heartburn and food sensitivities to name a few.

Acupuncture helps improve the digestive system by influencing acid secretion, motility, neurohormonal changes and changes in sensory thresholds.

For example, bloating is reduced by acupuncture’s ability to increase acid secretion and improve the motility of the gastrointestinal tract.

This means food is broken down more effectively and moved through the digestive tract more efficiently.

A healthy diet and lifestyle can also aide the benefits.

Results usually can appear within the first few treatments, but you may require several sessions to see significant improvement.

Acupuncture provides an extremely safe, highly effective and a completely natural approach to regaining and maintaining optimum digestive health and restoring strength and harmony to your body.

Initial consultations will provide you with an insight into how your health issue can be treated through the use of acupuncture as well as an initial treatment to get you on the road to recovery.
