How It Works
Chronic swelling in the body is due to water build up. When the body is processing water properly, water circulates just like the blood. In Chinese medicine the Spleen is in charge of water regulation. When our Spleen Qi is weak, water accumulates and causes edema. It most often occurs in the lower legs, but swelling can happen anywhere in the body.
Acupuncture resolves edema by addressing the root cause, poor water metabolism. We use specific acupuncture points to strengthen your Spleen function. When the Spleen is working properly it is able to circulate water in the body and resolve edema.
What To Expect
When you come for acupuncture we conduct an intake, ask you lots of questions about your health, look at your tongue and feel your pulse. All of this information gives us a good understanding about how your internal organs are functioning.
While most cases of edema involve Spleen Qi weakness, other organs may also be involved. For example, Kidney Qi deficiency often plays a role in swelling. After examining you we determine your specific Chinese medicine diagnosis, which identifies the organ imbalances responsible for your edema.
We then create a treatment plan to correct this imbalance. You receive your first acupuncture treatment that very same day, starting the healing process. The number of treatments you need depends on the level of imbalance in your body. Some patients’ edema can be corrected in three treatments while others may need six or nine. No matter how many treatments you need, you will start feeling the benefits of your treatment after just a few sessions.
