IBS is at epidemic proportions. It seems everyone knows someone struggling with stomach pain and bowel issues. Trademark symptoms include frequent and urgent bowel movements, stomach and abdominal pain, and stools that are too loose or too hard. Want your irritable bowel syndrome resolved? Check out acupuncture.
How It Works
There is no Western medical cure for IBS. The medications prescribed by doctors are not particularly effective and often have negative side effects. Acupuncture, on the other hand, brings long lasting relief safely and naturally.
When you come for acupuncture we first identify your internal imbalances. These imbalances are responsible for your IBS symptoms. Second, we use acupuncture to correct the imbalances. And when we do, your symptoms resolve.
Case Study: Irritable Bowel Syndrome Resolved
Gene, a 34 year old man, came to Raleigh Acupuncture complaining of frequent, painful and urgent bowel movements every morning. His symptoms were aggravated by stress. By the afternoon symptoms eased. But the next day they were back again. He had been struggling with IBS for years.
This patient had a very specific Chinese medicine diagnosis involving the liver, spleen and large intestine. After examining the patient we created a treatment plan to correct this imbalance. We used acupuncture and Chinese herbs to restore proper balance.
After seven treatments the patient no longer had frequent bowel movements with urgency and pain. And best of all, he was able to stay healthy afterwards. That’s because acupuncture corrected the root problem, not just the symptoms.

What our Clients are Saying
My IBS triggered diarrhea every day, all day long, but especially in the mornings. It would be triggered by the foods I ate, stress at work, or nothing at all. I was getting to the point where I was going to give up my job and try to find a job where I could work out of the house. As a last resort I went to Raleigh Acupuncture. I started seeing changes right away, less attacks in the morning, less triggers during the day. Over the duration of my treatments it seemed like my intestines were getting stronger and less sensitive. After about a month of treatment I was just having problems in the morning, going about three times. After about another month I was having normal bowel movements just once in the morning. As far as I can tell, my IBS is completely healed.
My husband Arthur and I have used Raleigh Acupuncture bi-weekly for at least 4 years, for a variety of treatments, including general well-being. Both of us felt our ailments healed with the treatment. I initially visited for Irritable Bowel Syndrome – and had immediate relief… the practitioners are very professional and learned, and we have every confidence in them. Even though we pay out of pocket, we obviously feel that the acupuncture is worth it. We both highly recommend Raleigh Acupuncture – you won’t regret it!
I have always had a nervous stomach. Some people get headaches, I get stomach aches. It’s always worse with stress and eases up on the weekends when I can relax. I did not think of getting treatment until I stumbled on an article saying how acupuncture was excellent for treating stomach pain. I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and described my condition. They explained why my stomach hurt. It totally made sense to me. It’s all about internal balance. So they went to work on me to get my stomach balanced. And I’m pleased to say that it worked. I no longer have a nervous stomach and stomach pain, even in stressful situations. I’ve made some changes to my diet, based on their recommendations, and took chinese herbs for a while, but don’t need to take them now. I’m convinced that I would have lived with stomach pain for the rest of my life had it not been for acupuncture.
I’m totally afraid of needles, but my wife convinced me to try acupuncture for my IBS. It was really hampering my life. I’d have to go to the bathroom 5 times before leaving for work. Then at work I’d be sitting in a meeting and all of a sudden have to go again. Any type of stress set me off. At first they could only use 2 needles, that’s all I would let them do. But after a few treatments I started relaxing and felt more comfortable with the needles. The effect has been amazing. I’m so much better now. Mornings are easy, no problems at work. It’s hard to believe, because I’ve had this for my entire adult life. Now I just go in for maintenance and have some herbs I take when I need them. Raleigh Acupuncture is a great outfit.
