Asthmatic symptoms are coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness that are normally caused by inflammation that results in a narrowing or blockage of the airways. Common triggers are cold, flu, sinus infections, change in weather, strenuous exercise, foods, smoke, strong fragrances and strong emotional distres. Asthma may be periodic and only felt with specific or seasonal triggers while others suffer constantly and may be life-threatening. Prevention is the general approach for treatment
Accupuncture is a holistic-style treatment that works, over time, to control asthma permanently. In other words, not just a quick fix. Accupuncture will focus on what system or organs are creating the imbalance in the body, such as the Lungs, Kidney, or Spleen and work to remedy them.
All aspects of your life incombent your health and will effect your asthma. Accupunturists work hard to understand your daily routines to improve not just your asthma, but your overall health in a safe and effective way.
