The Center for Disease Control defines Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as “a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that may be worsened by physical or mental activity.” We have successfully treated this condition for years. We know it is real, misunderstood and debilitating. Come in for the Raleigh Acupuncture chronic fatigue treatment and see for yourself.

How We Treat Chronic Fatigue
Chinese medicine knows exactly what chronic fatigue syndrome is. It is extreme weakness of the spleen and kidney. Not your actual spleen and kidney, but your Chinese version of these organs. Our medicine is thousands of years old. We talk about organ disharmony as a way of understanding disease.
Mild spleen and kidney weakness will cause fatigue, but not debilitating fatigue. It will cause weight gain because the body is not efficiently metabolizing food into energy. Some food is transformed into energy (not enough) and the rest into fat. Without energy you feel sluggish, but still be able to function. A good night’s sleep goes a long way to helping someone with this type of mild deficiency.
Severe spleen and kidney weakness found in adrenal fatigue is a whole different matter. Metabolism is shot. None of the food you eat is turning into energy. The organ imbalance is so severe that sleep is no longer able to restore health. Any exertion is too much. This is a BIG problem because the body no longer has the ability to heal itself. That’s where acupuncture comes in.
Acupuncture and Chronic Fatigue
Acupuncture strengthens organ function. Points on the surface of the body boost the spleen, kidney, liver, lung and heart. Acupuncture strengthens the stomach as well, allowing it to metabolize food better. The Raleigh Acupuncture chronic fatigue treatment systematically restores your organ health, allowing you to heal in the process.
What To Expect
When you come in for treatment we conduct a comprehensive intake exam. The information we collect helps us make a Chinese medicine diagnosis for your condition. We need to identify the specific organ imbalances responsible for your chronic fatigue. While most cases involve the spleen and kidney, we make sure to include all factors involved in your case.
From here we develop a custom treatment plan to restore your health. You receive a full treatment on your first visit. We want to get you started on the road to health right away.
All of our treatments use sterile, single-use, hair thin needles. You hardly feel them. And the treatments are relaxing. Many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. Afterwards you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. And while you are resting, during your session, the acupuncture is healing your internal organs.

What our Clients are Saying
About six months ago I starting getting debilitating fatigue, to the point where I could not exercise and had to drag myself through the day at work. The doctors said it must be stress, because there was nothing wrong with me. But when I went to Raleigh Acupuncture, they said that my digestion was weak. They said I was not getting proper energy from the food I was eating, so they treated my digestive system. I was amazed to see my energy increase after the treatments. Within 10 treatments I was back to my old self, exercising again and working through the day no problem. And as a side benefit, I started losing weight. They said this was related to my improved digestive function. Now my friends want to go because they see my energy back and see me losing weight!
I am a long term patient of Raleigh Acupuncture. Prior to being under their care, I was disabled with terrible fatigue and pain all over my body. I was unable to drive, could only walk less than a block, and had numerous symptoms that mystified doctors. After countless lab work, x-rays, and MRI’s, several doctors including my primary physician told me that there was nothing that could be done. According to them, it was either an illness that was undiagnosable or it was all in my head. When I came to Raleigh Acupuncture, it was a breath of fresh air. They took me very seriously and were not mystified by my condition. They assured me that my condition was treatable and manageable. They treat me with respect, dignity and care; something that I didn’t receive at my primary care doctor. Thanks to their treatments I am now living a normal life. They have restored my health and taught me how to manage my condition. My family and friends can’t believe how much improvement I have made. My son is grateful to have his mommy back! And I am eternally grateful to Raleigh Acupuncture! They truly have the gift of healing!
