DIGESTIVE HEALTH

Chinese Medicine is a gentle, non-invasive approach to treating a wide variety of digestive problems.  As Licensed Acupuncturists, we address some of the following digestive health issues on a daily basis:

  • Abdominal Bloating
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Colitis
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Eating Disorders 
  • Food Poisoning
  • Hemorrhoids
  • IBS & IBD
  • Parasitic Infections
  • Weight Problems/Obesity 

We even get referrals from gastroenterologists, Family Practice MD's, D.O's, OB/Gyn's and surgeons whose patients have requested a non-drug way to address their digestive concerns.

If you are unsatisfied with the treatment (or lack thereof) you've received so far for your digestive problems, try using the wisdom of the East to regulate the Earth Element: your digestive system.

Here's a piece Abigail wrote for her blog, MamaFloat, on Tummy Trouble in kids. Useful tips on home remedies and tips from an Acupuncturist mama!
