How It Works
The mechanism is straightforward. Specific acupuncture points on the body’s surface affect the way organs function. All the major organs in our body, including the lungs, kidneys, liver, stomach, and heart, have corresponding acupuncture points on the body that influence them. For example, we most often treat the lungs and kidneys when treating asthma.
From a Chinese medicine point of view, the lungs and kidneys work together to assure steady, regular breathing. Most asthma patients will have weakness or deficiency in one or both of these organ functions. Acupuncture strengthens the lungs and kidneys, resulting in more vital breathing, less wheezing, and fewer asthma symptoms.
Where Are The Acupuncture Points Located?
The Raleigh Acupuncture asthma treatment uses points on the upper back that improve lung function. Acupoints on the low back similarly nourish the kidneys. The treatment is also effective face-up for patients who feel uncomfortable lying face down. Other lung and kidney points are located on the arms and legs and work well for treating asthma.
How Many Treatment Will You Need?
While it varies from person to person, generally, you will receive 6 to 12 acupuncture treatments to improve your asthma condition. You will start feeling the beneficial effects of the acupuncture after the first two or three treatments and will continue to improve as the sessions continue.
Unlike most Western medicines, acupuncture has a long-lasting effect. Acupuncture’s goal is to have the patient retain the improvements they receive for a long time.

What our Clients are Saying
My treatments for asthma at Raleigh Acupuncture were successful. I’ve had asthma my whole life. It was typically triggered when I played sports or physically exerted myself. I was using an inhaler (Advair) for years, but wanted to try acupuncture to see if I could stop using it.
My research on acupuncture treating asthma showed mixed results, but the doctor at the acupuncture office encouraged me to try their treatment. I received 12 treatments total. After the first six treatments I was noticing a positive difference. I didn’t have to use my inhaler as often. After the 12 visits I was needing the inhaler even less frequently.
I can tell that my lungs are stronger now. I get less winded, wheeze much less frequently, and have more stamina. I will continue the acupuncture on a maintenance basis to keep up the benefits. I recommend them for treating asthma.
