Digestive health conditions refer to a range of disorders and diseases that affect the digestive system, which includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus. These conditions can affect how the body processes food, absorbs nutrients and eliminates waste.
Some common digestive health conditions include: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which stomach acid flows back into the esophagus; irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating and change in bowel habits; inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are conditions that affect the lining of the digestive tract which can lead to diarrhea and rectal bleeding; Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the body reacts to gluten can cause damage to the small intestine; food intolerances such as lactose intolerance occurs when the body has difficulty digesting certain foods.
Acupuncture can be a valuable complementary therapy for digestive health conditions, as it works to help restore balance to the body and promote healthy digestion. Acupuncture can help alleviate symptoms of digestive disorders by regulating the digestive system, reducing inflammation, and improving blood flow to the digestive organs. By targeting specific acupuncture points, acupuncture can also help improve overall gut function, regulate the release of neurotransmitters, and reduce stress, which in some conditions decreases exacerbation of symptoms.
If you are suffering from digestive health issues, acupuncture may be an effective treatment option for you. For more information contact us or book an appointment using the button below.

Andrea is a kind and thoughtful practitioner. I went to her for acupuncture and cupping to relieve pain from a chronic back injury. She took a detailed history, provided excellent care, and gave me advice on ways to manage my pain in-between visits. I highly recommend Thrive Acupuncture for anyone who is looking for wholistic and compassionate care.
