Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine study for digestive disorders.

In a 2015 study from the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers showed acupuncture and moxibustion significantly reduce intestinal inflammation for Crohn’s disease patients. Through analyzing before and after intestinal biopsies, the researchers observed acupuncture and moxibustion were able to relieve inflammation by regulating the ratio of inflammatory response cells. The two modalities were inducing homeostasis in the gastrointestinal cells.


Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine address digestive disorders in a holistic way. They look at root causes like:


Acupuncture is a natural treatment for digestive disorders

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses completely natural treatment methods that leverage ancient herbal remedies and your body’s innate healing processes rather than synthetic medications. We help you get back to optimal health and relieve digestive disorders without drugs or harmful side effects.


We access your body’s natural ability to overcome digestive disorders

Acupuncture stimulates the release of neurotransmitters and other chemicals that activate the body’s internal regulating system. Treatments for digestive distress can decrease inflammation in the digestive tract by restoring balance to inflammatory response cells. In general, acupuncture brings the body into better biochemical balance, which promotes physical well-being and supports the body’s natural ability to overcome digestive disorders.


We address the root causes of your digestive disorders

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine address the root causes of your digestive distress rather than just masking your symptoms. Treatments may include herbal medicine or dietary or lifestyle recommendations. We develop treatment plans that are unique to each patient, because each patient comes in with a unique body, health history and root cause behind their digestive disorder.


Yes, it is very safe. Acupuncturists use individually wrapped, single-use, sterile needles for each treatment.

Acupuncture can cause minor bruising and tenderness around where the needles are inserted. This bruising will go away within a couple of days after your treatment.

This depends on the severity of your digestive disorder and how long it has been an issue. We will help determine the duration of time it will take for you to see significant changes in your health. We can work together to develop a digestive treatment plan that’s manageable for you.
