Acupuncture Relieves Stomach Pain
Does your stomach hurt all the time? Is it a sharp, stabbing pain that doubles you over? Or is it more dull and achy that makes you want to lie down and curl up in a ball? Do you get bloated after meals? Are there certain foods that trigger stomach aches and indigestion? Do you have to avoid certain foods? Has your doctor told you that you have food allergies and need to stop eating many foods? Is your diet becoming limited because foods upset your stomach?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, consider acupuncture. It heals the stomach in a completely different way than Western medicine. In addition, we have a 2000 year track record of success.
How Acupuncture Works
Our goal is to get your stomach to function normally again. You didn’t always have stomach pain, and you used to eat a wide variety of foods. Instead of seeing food as the bad guy, we address why your stomach cannot digest foods properly.
As we get older, our digestive function declines. We all need energy to live, and the stomach is the mechanism that converts food to energy. A weak stomach causes a host of problems, including:
- Triggers pain because sluggish digestion causes stagnation.
- It robs us of energy, leaving us lethargic.
- It weakens our immune system because we’re not building blood to fight infection.
What Causes Stomach Pain?
There are many other triggers for stomach pain. For example, some people have a constitutional weakness in their stomach function. They may have inherited this from their parents. In other cases, a poor diet over a long period can damage the stomach.
Stress damages stomach function as well – so does working too hard. There are so many ways for the stomach to be damaged in this day and age, resulting in pain, poor digestion, food allergies, bloating, and gas. It is no wonder so many people have stomach problems and food allergies.
What To Expect
When patients come for acupuncture, our first job is to identify the root cause of their stomach problems. Then, we evaluate the patient’s symptoms and review their medical history, diet, and lifestyle to determine the problem and what has to be corrected. After that, the treatment focuses on strengthening the stomach, correcting the imbalances, and resolving the pain.
Once acupuncture strengthens your stomach, the pain will naturally diminish. In addition, you will be able to eat many more foods without adverse reactions. Your food allergies will lessen, your energy will increase, and your immune system will improve. And it all comes down to improving your stomach function.
Acupuncture is Safe
Acupuncture is safe, has no adverse side effects, and puts no toxic medicine in your body. The needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. The points activate your own body’s healing mechanism. And once healed, the stomach will stay vital on its own.
Recent Stomach Pain Case
A 53-year-old woman came to our clinic complaining of stomach pain, bloating, and diarrhea every morning. Her intake exam revealed two important clues to her underlying condition. First, her tongue had a thick white coating and scalloped edges. This presentation indicates a weak digestive system, specifically Spleen Qi Deficiency. Second, her pulse quality was wiry, showing that her body held a great deal of stress. This pattern is called Liver Qi Stagnation.
Her treatment consisted of acupuncture points to strengthen her Spleen energy (Qi) and smooth out her stagnant Liver Qi. Acupoints for her treatment included: LV3, LI4, ST36, SP3, CV12, CV6, GV20, and Yintang.
After four treatments, her stomach pain and bloating were 70 percent improved. So too were her energy and bowel function. She felt less stressed and was sleeping better as well. She felt wholly restored following her sixth session. The key to her successful treatment was identifying the root causes of her stomach pain.

What our Clients are Saying
Thanks Mark for helping me to get rid of my gastritis! With you help and dedication I’m feeling so much better. Recommended!
My husband Arthur and I have used Raleigh Acupuncture bi-weekly for at least 4 years, for a variety of treatments, including general well-being. Both of us felt our ailments healed with the treatment. I initially visited for Irritable Bowel Syndrome – and had immediate relief… the practitioners are very professional and learned, and we have every confidence in them. Even though we pay out of pocket, we obviously feel that the acupuncture is worth it. We both highly recommend Raleigh Acupuncture – you won’t regret it!
I have always had a nervous stomach. Some people get headaches, I get stomach aches. It’s always worse with stress and eases up on the weekends when I can relax. I did not think of getting treatment until I stumbled on an article saying how acupuncture was excellent for treating stomach pain. I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and described my condition. They explained why my stomach hurt. It totally made sense to me. It’s all about internal balance. So they went to work on me to get my stomach balanced. And I’m pleased to say that it worked. I no longer have a nervous stomach and stomach pain, even in stressful situations. I’ve made some changes to my diet, based on their recommendations, and took chinese herbs for a while, but don’t need to take them now. I’m convinced that I would have lived with stomach pain for the rest of my life had it not been for acupuncture.
I’m totally afraid of needles, but my wife convinced me to try acupuncture for my IBS. It was really hampering my life. I’d have to go to the bathroom 5 times before leaving for work. Then at work I’d be sitting in a meeting and all of a sudden have to go again. Any type of stress set me off. At first they could only use 2 needles, that’s all I would let them do. But after a few treatments I started relaxing and felt more comfortable with the needles. The effect has been amazing. I’m so much better now. Mornings are easy, no problems at work. It’s hard to believe, because I’ve had this for my entire adult life. Now I just go in for maintenance and have some herbs I take when I need them. Raleigh Acupuncture is a great outfit.
