How does it work?
Acupuncture and acupressure regulate the autonomic nervous system, so they turn on the "rest and digest" functions of the body. They also reduce systemic inflammation and improve blood flow to the internal organs, like the stomach and intestines.
What to expect
We treat most digestion complaints with a combination of acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.You can expect the frequency and severity of your symptoms to gradually decrease during course of treatment. When you feel better we recommend that you come to see us for regular "tune-ups" and herbal medicine refills to make sure that your symptoms don't come back.
I started acupuncture because doctors told me they'd done all they could do for my Crohn's Disease. Fortunately I called Dr. O'Brien and started acupuncture treatments. I feel so much better! I have not had a flare up for several months. The acupuncture also helped me with some other health problems. I'm sorry I didn't discover acupuncture earlier.Elaine W. Crohn's Disease
I started acupuncture because my doctors could not provide relief for my abdominal pain. I had extreme discomfort and pain in the center of my abdomen. After receiving treatments at Opus Acupuncture I found immediate relief. I have not had any more abdominal pain. The treatments also relieved me of other symptoms I was having (allergies, headaches, arthritis, sleeping problems). Thank you!Eddie J.
