Acupuncture & Circulatory Disorder Guide 

What Is Acupuncture? 

Acupuncture is one of the oldest methods for treating wellness issues, dating back over 3,000 years to China. According to ancient Chinese medical theory, human beings have a natural flow of energy throughout the body, referred to as Qi. When Qi circulates smoothly throughout the energy pathways, also known as meridians, the patient is in good health.

AcupunctureHowever, a disruption or blockage of energy can lead to physical, mental, and emotional problems. To eliminate or reduce these ailments and encourage wellness, an acupuncturist treats points related to specific meridians on the skin. This treatment helps to free the flow of Qi and return vitality to the mind and body. 

How Does It Treat Circulatory Disorders? 

Acupuncture treats circulatory problems by targeting the meridians that are associated to issues like coronary artery disease, stroke, and heart failure. The fine filaments are placed at specific points determined by the person’s individual condition and empirical knowledge in Chinese medicine to treat vascular disease. The correct placement of the filaments dilates blood vessels, increases blood flow and nutrients to the area, and helps remove waste. The new flow of oxygen and the removal of lactic acid buildup also contribute to better circulation and the elimination of heart problems. 

By utilizing an acupuncturist as part of your healthcare team, you can manage your circulatory disorder symptoms and prevent illness. Regular appointments can also help you quit smoking, improve digestion, reduce pain and manage your sleep schedule, which all contribute to better cardiovascular health. For more health benefits that apply to your situation, consult with a Chinese medicine professional.
