Raleigh Acupuncture Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment
This video discusses our rheumatoid arthritis treatment.
How It Works
Acupuncture effectively treats RA and other auto-immune conditions because it quiets the body’s auto-immune response. Auto-immune conditions turn the body against itself. RA is an auto-immune response that attacks the joints.
Acupuncture reduces RA pain by diminishing this attack. It works at the organ level to train the body to stop attacking itself. This reduces inflammation and pain in the joints. The acupuncture points we use are located on the arms and legs. These points send messages to the organs, causing the body to reduce the auto-immune response.
Joint pain also comes from Qi stagnation. Qi is a form of energy that flows through the body. When Qi gets blocked, we feel pain. RA causes the Qi to stagnate in the joints, resulting in pain. Acupuncture gets the Qi moving again. And when it does, pain is reduced.
The Raleigh Acupuncture rheumatoid arthritis treatment treats RA at two levels – teaching the body to stop attacking itself, and moving the Qi through the joints. This dynamic approach is one of the reasons acupuncture such an effective medicine.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m an RA veteran, having been diagnosed over 20 years ago. So I know all about the treatments and what they can do. Somehow I had overlooked acupuncture. Maybe it was a bias against “alternative” medicine. In any case, my aunt pressured me into trying her acupuncturist. She goes for asthma treatments, but said that the acupuncture treatment for auto-immune disease was similar. My research was inconclusive, but I decided to give it a try. I knew it couldn’t make my condition worse.
To my surprise the acupuncture has substantially reduce my daily pain levels. My flares are less frequent and intense, and pain does not move as quickly from place to place. The doc at Raleigh Acupuncture said there was indeed a connection between RA and other auto-immune diseases in the way Chinese medicine approached treatment. They said that the acupuncture slows the auto-immune response. I can actually feel that happening inside my body.
So I’m taking less medications, having less pain, and am able to be more active. Acupuncture is now an important component of my wellness plan for RA. I’m very grateful to Raleigh Acupuncture for their continued help.
I am newly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (six months ago). My pain was traveling from my hips to feet, with something hurting pretty much all the time. My doctor suggested I try acupuncture as part of my therapy. He had referred other patients to Raleigh Acupuncture and they reported success. I’m feeling much more optimistic since going there. Before the acupuncture, my pain was really bad. Since I’ve started acupuncture, my pain has decreased by half at least. The acupuncture doctor really understands what I’m going through.
The doctor at Raleigh Acupuncture was brilliant at reducing my pain from RA. My wrists and ankles were so bad I could not walk. After a series of treatments the pain is 90% better and I’m living my life like normal. If you’ve got RA, you MUST try acupuncture. I shared my story with my RA support group. They were all queasy about the idea of acupuncture. I told them they were crazy not to make an appointment with my acupuncture doctor. The treatment doesn’t even hurt. I wish I knew about this 5 years ago when I was first diagnosed!!
