Acid Reflux Acupuncture
Acid reflux occurs when a sudden increase in stomach pressure causes the sphincter between the stomach and the esophagus to open. This video talks about some ways of reducing acid reflux, including:
- Eat less greasy or spicy food in one sitting.
- Don’t drink fluids with your meal. Soda is especially bad because the bubbles will cause a buildup of pressure in your stomach.

Acupuncture for Acne
Acupuncture helps clear and prevent acne by making sure that your liver and kidney functions well and is able to clear up the metabolites in the blood that can stimulate your glands to produce too much oil and clog up pores. In addition, acupuncture can decrease inflammation that may lead to infections in the skin, which could result in scarring.
Acupuncture for Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue can occur when we face stressful situations. Since stress occurs in our lives almost on a daily basis, your adrenal gland often becomes depleted at the end of each day. Therefore, at night, we need to help bring energy to our adrenal glands so that they can restore their function and continue to help us cope with the next day’s stress. This video explains how acupuncture can help you restore and enhance your adrenal function.
Acupuncture for Allergies
Allergies are our body’s response to foreign materials and can be caused by multiple factors, including the following:
- Phlegm from salty or sugary foods
- High histamine level from lack of sleep or certain foods

One cause of anxiety is the overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system, which can happen from playing on the smart phone, talking too much, or over-consuming sugar or caffeine. In addition, staying indoors for too long where there is lower oxygen level can weaken the parasympathetic nervous system, which normally balances the sympathetic nervous system. Acupuncture helps instantly dilate small blood vessels and strengthen your parasympathetic nervous system, allowing you to feel calmer and more capable of handling stress.

Acupuncture for Arthritis
Acupuncture can benefit patients with arthritis in a number of ways. First, it strengthens tendons and muscles to keep the joints in proper alignment. Second, it improves digestion so your body is better able to absorb the nutrients that allow the body to heal itself. Finally, it can reduce swelling of the synovial cavities. As a result, patients usually find instant pain relief from their arthritis after acupuncture.
Acupuncture for Depression
Depression medications usually have a wider array of side effects including weight gain and suicidal thoughts. To help minimize side effects and ensure that patients take the lowest effective dose of these medications, we recommend using Chinese herbs concurrently. Please watch our video to learn more.
Acupuncture for Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is usually associated with desensitized insulin receptors. This type of diabetes has become especially common in modern society because we are increasingly consuming foods that contain simple sugars, which causes our blood sugar levels to shoot up, resulting in the rapid release of insulin that produces inflammation and desensitizes insulin receptors. When combined with dietary changes, acupuncture can help people with Type 2 diabetes by improving their digestive function and changing their metabolism, so instead of storing the sugars in the blood, their bodies will burn them to produce energy.
