Watch this video to learn more about our treatment.
The Attention Deficit Disorder Associates defines ADHD as “a brain-based syndrome that regulates brain function and behavior, referred to as executive functioning skills.” These skills include attention, concentration, memory, motivation and effort, learning from mistakes, impulsiveness, hyperactivity, organization, and social skills. Various contributing factors play a role in these challenges, including chemical and structural differences in the brain as well as genetics.”
While acupuncture cannot cure ADHD, it is a powerful tool to manage and reduce symptoms. Patients describe feeling more calm and having improved focus and concentration after receiving acupuncture.
Benefits are long lasting because acupuncture addresses root causes responsible for the condition. Acupuncture works very well in conjunction with traditional treatments including medication, talk therapy and coaching.
How It Works
Acupuncture improves concentration by nourishing the brain. There are acupuncture points that strengthen the marrow of the brain. Memory is improved by nourishing the Kidneys and Heart. Motivation is improved by strengthening the Liver. Hyperactivity is reduced by clearing excess heat from the body at the organ level. All of these techniques are safe, natural and painless.
A primary point for nourishing the brain is called GB39 located on the lower leg. Points to boost memory include KD3, PC6 and GV20. Motivation points include LV3 on the foot and LI4 on the hand. Hyperactivity calming points include LI11, GV14 and KD2. Each person with ADHD will receive their own treatment plan that includes specific acupuncture points best suited to their needs.
These points provide both short-term therapeutic value and well as long-term adjustments to the way the body works. After a course of treatment a person with ADHD will have more control over their state of calm, concentration and behavior.
