Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a feeling of agitation in the legs when you are not moving. The condition is worse at night when lying in bed. RLS is debilitating, making it nearly impossible to relax or sleep. Medications are available, but they have unwanted side effects.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture treats RLS in two ways. First, we open the channels of the legs to improve Qi and blood circulation. Opening the channels also calms the nerves in the legs. Second, we identify and restore balance to your internal organs. Organ imbalance can trigger RLS. Once corrected, your legs will not feel restless.
Opening the Channels
There are Qi (energy) pathways running through your body. They are similar to nerve pathways, and often run parallel to the nerves. But they are clearly distinct from nerves. Think of channels as a road system allowing Qi to flow through the body. Qi keeps us alive. It circulates the blood and nourishes the organs.
When channels are blocked, Qi cannot flow. Qi stagnation causes pain and discomfort. Almost all pain in the body is due to some form of Qi stagnation in the channels. Just like an accident on the commute home slows traffic, Qi stagnation in the channels creates disharmony in the body leading to pain.
Restless leg syndrome is discomfort associated with Qi stagnation in the channels of the legs. Acupuncture restores proper Qi flow. When it does, the sensations of RLS are resolved.
Restoring Proper Organ Function
If we had perfect health our internal organs would function perfectly. As we age, our declining health is directly related to problems with our organ function. The Raleigh Acupuncture restless leg syndrome treatment identifies your specific internal imbalances by looking at signs and symptoms. This includes not only your leg discomfort, but also your sleep patterns, digestion and emotional state.
This information allows us to create a treatment plan to correct your unique internal imbalances. By restoring internal balance we treat your RLS from the inside out. In conjunction with opening the channels, it provides deep, long lasting relief.
