How Can Acupuncture Help Asthma?

Even in today’s advanced technological age, the cause of asthma is poorly understood at best, and it is usually labeled as a chronic affliction of unknown origin that one must learn to cope with. That’s why conventional medicine aims at lessening the asthmatic person’s symptoms and reducing his or her sensitivity to any kinds of allergens or environmental triggers with allergy injections and medications. Pinnacle Integrative in Seattle WA takes a step further in treating asthmatic individuals by combining such conventional therapies with the ancient Chinese healing art of acupuncture.

How acupuncture works

Like asthma itself, the exact mechanisms of how acupuncture works is not objectively understood, nor can its function be traced to only one specific effect. The eastern theory on acupuncture is that it unblocks “qi”, or energy, that has become trapped in certain areas of the body. What Seattle WA acupuncturists at Pinnacle Integrative in Seattle WA know to be more than just a theory is that acupuncture, or needle therapy, increases blood circulation tremendously in the area it’s applied to and stimulates the brain to manufacture greater amounts of pain-mitigating endorphins.

A whole body treatment

The increased blood flow in specific targeted areas has a beneficial effect on the whole body and circulatory system, which also reduces the inflammation present in the lungs and airways of asthmatics and thus makes breathing easier and less likely to become blocked. For the skeptical patient who demands scientific evidence to back the efficiency of treatments, the qi or life force of Chinese medicine could be seen as being analogous to blood and its ability to flow unimpeded throughout the body. It makes perfect sense that increased blood circulation corresponds with less inflammation and pain, increased absorption of nutrients and faster healing and cellular repair, all of which are of great benefit for the patient who suffers from symptoms such as a chronic sore throat that takes forever to heal.

Attacking the problem at all angles

By combining a holistic with a more conventional approach, the team at Pinnacle Integrative in Seattle WA can increase our chances of getting to the root of our illness while ensuring as much comfort and safety as possible and lessening the frequency and severity of attacks. The skilled Seattle WA acupuncturist understands that the key is in the seamless integration of these two systems, an attack from all sides on asthma which has a much greater chance of improving the patient’s quality of life, while opening his or her body up to the “healer within” that targeted acupuncture enables access to.
