• Digestion and GI Issues

  • A properly functioning digestive system is key to providing the body with the nutrients it needs to stay strong and healthy. Unfortunately, many people suffer from digestive and GI disorders. This can range from gas and bloating, to abdominal pain and cramping, to chronic constipation or diarrhea. Often, the symptoms don’t stop there. In some cases, digestive issues can lead to headaches, fatigue, and stress.



    Acupuncture is an effective, natural way to address these concerns without the side effects of medications or surgery. According Asian medicine theory, good health happens when all systems are balanced and working together. Symptoms such as those listed above occur when there is an imbalance or obstruction affecting the free flow of qi (pronounced ‘chee’). When qi does not flow smoothly, pain, weakness, and illness can result.



    Julie will work with you to find the underlying imbalance and obstructions and create a treatment plan specific to your needs. By inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points in the body, she will seek to restore balance and enable the natural movement of qi through the body.   



    Julie may also suggest other lifestyle adjustments to enhance treatment and speed healing. This may include diet, exercise, meditation and breathing practices.
