Respiratory Acupuncture

Acupuncture works quickly and effectively on breathing problems like it works on problems of the heart and cardiovascular system

Acupuncture works quickly and effectively on breathing problems like it works on problems of the heart and cardiovascular system, because Acupuncture stimulates the Vagus nerve which has a big impact on breathing, and stimulates the release of: calcitonin gene related peptide, white blood cells, and nitric oxide synthase (NOS). These cells and substances are all naturally made in the body and act to fight infection, reduce inflammation, repair tissue damage, and increase blood flow and oxygenation.

The needles target autonomic reflexes in the spine that go directly to the lungs and diaphragm themselves where the above mentioned cells and substances are circulated. Acupuncture treats not only the symptoms but also the underlying mechanisms of the respiratory disorders like: inflammation, swelling, excess mucus production, restricted breathing passages, muscle spasms, and infections (microorganisms). Acupuncture is great as a stand alone but also enhances the effects of medications and breathing exercises.
