Digestive disorders include a broad category of conditions such as inflammatory, autoimmune and poor assimilation. The goal of acupuncture treatment is to help reduce reactions, clear accumulations of toxins and gently restore proper function.
In conditions of acute crisis, acupuncture treatments are generally once a week until reactivity is reduced. Abdominal massage is performed to help relax the abdominal wall and increase the blood flow to all the internal organs. It improves digestion and elimination by retraining the muscles to remain relaxed by practicing deep diaphragmatic breath work. Herbal formulas work to stop pain and reduce inflammation reinforcing treatments with at home care. Once pain and inflammation have been moderated, tonification can begin. During this process the goal is to help your digestive function achieve its’ own version of balance. From this balanced space you can listen to your bodies needs, rather then just being alerted by discomfort. At this point you can create your own treatment plan based on when your body tells you it needs attention.
