Acupuncture is often used in treating a number of respiratory disorders. These may include acute or chronic rhinitis, sinusitis, the common cold, tonsillitis, bronchitis, asthma and COPD or emphysema.

Acupuncture helps to:

  • decrease the bodies reactivity to substances - the histamine response - which produces allergic symptoms
  • stimulate anti-inflammatory agents naturally to decrease inflammation
  • calm the sympathetic nervous system to relax smooth muscle to open constricted airways, ease breathing and move excess mucous and phlegm.
  • improve lung capacity and ease of respiration during activity and at rest enabling COPD sufferers to perform the activities of daily living.

In Chinese Medicine the lungs are the main circulatory organ in the body and are known as the commander of qi.  If you can improve the function of your respiratory system then you can improve your overall circultion and therefore your overall health.
