How Acupuncture Works
“Damp Heat in the Lower Jiao” is the most common diagnosis of overactive bladder. This Chinese medicine diagnosis indicates that moisture and heat have collected in and around the bladder, causing inflammation, dysfunction, and pain. When healthy, our bodies manage water metabolism and temperature correctly, with no excess buildup. We use the water we need and excrete the rest. Similarly, our bodies generate enough heat to function correctly, no more, no less.
But when disharmony lodges in the body, water (dampness) accumulates. Then, adding excess internal heat to the mix, dampness transforms into phlegm (more sticky and stubborn to expel). When damp heat lodges near the bladder, you get inflammation, UTIs, and an overactive bladder.
Phlegm heat causes trouble anywhere it finds a home. For example, sinus infections are nothing more than toxic phlegm heat lodging in the head and sinus cavities. Acupuncture corrects these imbalances, relieving symptoms in the process.
Acupuncture Relieves Overactive Bladder
We conduct an intake exam on your first visit to learn everything about your condition. You’ll receive an acupuncture treatment that same day.
Acupuncture is completely safe. All needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. Treatments are relaxing – many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. Afterward, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Acupuncture gently corrects the imbalances responsible for your condition as you rest.
If you suffer from an overactive bladder, try acupuncture.
Recent Overactive Bladder Case
A 64-year-old woman came to our clinic complaining of frequent, painful, urgent urination. Her primary physician initially diagnosed her with a UTI and prescribed a course of antibiotics. However, she was rediagnosed with an overactive bladder when her symptoms persisted.
Our intake exam diagnosed her with Damp Heat in the Lower Jiao. Her treatment plan included the acupoints CV3, ST29, ST44, LI11, and ST36. In addition, we prescribed a Chinese herbal formula to clear damp heat from the bladder. Upon returning for her second treatment, she reported feeling 30 percent better. She had less pain and burning and could empty her bladder more completely.
An additional two treatments reduced her pain by 70 percent. After the fourth treatment, she was 100 percent better, and the problem did not return.

What our Clients are Saying
I highly recommend Raleigh Acupuncture. I was getting urinary tract infections every three months since my son was born and it was driving me crazy. After six treatments I was cured and no longer got them. I was treated so well and am very happy.
Went to Raleigh Acupuncture for frequent UTIs. They took care of the problem and I don’t get them anymore. Thank you!
I have suffered from IC for over 10 years, with terrible cramping and burning urination, having to go to the bathroom every 5 minutes. I tried acupuncture out of desperation because I wasn’t getting relief anywhere else. It worked incredibly and took away most of my IC symptoms. Why didn’t I know about this sooner. Raleigh Acupuncture is a really good practice. They have kept me healthy for over three years now. I highly recommend them for treating IC.
