Asthma & Respiratory Relief at Care Cure Acupuncture
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine standpoint asthma is the direct result of a deficiency in the lung meridian (channel). Once this lung energy becomes blocked, the chi (vital energy) becomes unstable and triggers an immune system response restricting both inhalation and exhalation. This is accompanied by wheezing and sometimes a cough
In Care Cure Acupuncture clinics we clearly differentiate between actual asthma attacks and the periods before attacks. Acupuncture can have a remarkable effect of stopping an asthma attack and many of our patients experience immediate relief after an acupuncture treatment feeling that the air way blockage was simply removed.
Stimulation of acupoints can also relieve both physical and emotional stress. The patient can therefore experience both a physical release from bronchial restriction and also an emotional release from the fear of suffocation.
According to acupuncture theory asthma can have 5 causative syndromes:
1. Retention cold fluid in the lungs.
2. Retention phlegm – heat in the lungs.
3. Weakness of spleen and lung chi.
4. Weakness of lung and kidney yin.
5. Weakness of heart and kidney yang.
An initial free consultation with our practitioner will determine which syndrome the patient has and depending on the findings, a course of treatment will be recommended.For further details or to avail of our FREE NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION please call us on 086-2159282 or see www.carecure.ie.
