Tummy troubles affect so much more than your stomach.
A healthy digestive system is the key to a healthy life. That’s why when our bellies rebel, we tend to struggle with a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. Everything from our energy to our mood to our confidence suffers when we can’t predict our digestion.

Gut troubles? I get it.
I know what it’s like to struggle with stomach pain, gas, bloating and a sensitive digestive system. For years I was tired of being told by tests and doctors that I was “normal” when I felt anything but normal. I had test after test and because nothing ever showed up, there was no treatment available for me. Instead, I was told that there was no treatment for me and to just live with it. I felt like I had no other option but to live with and I suffered for years, until I discovered acupuncture and herbs and started using them for myself. There was actually even a term to describe exactly what I was suffering from! I no longer suffer from the same issues that I once had and I am grateful for that.

FAQ: Long Beach Specialty Acupuncture for Digestive Health
What kinds of digestive conditions can acupuncture treat?
Because acupuncture helps the digestive system return to a state of balance, it can help a wide range of digestive symptoms and disorders. Here are just a few of the most common reasons people seek out acupuncture for digestive symptom relief:
How many acupuncture treatments will I need to get digestive relief?
Every situation is different so the total number of treatments varies. I take many things into consideration when assessing the total number of treatments such as: medical history, severity and frequency of symptoms and your current quality of life. After your initial consultation, you’ll receive a personalized Plan of Care with a recommended frequency and an estimated number of sessions needed.
How does acupuncture work to improve digestion?
Acupuncture helps strengthen the digestive functions that are at the very core of every bodily process. Our systems function best when they receive the nutrients that they need from the food that we eat. In order to get those nutrients, the digestive system needs to work together harmoniously.
What should I expect at my first acupuncture visit?
I will go through your detailed medical history with you, assess where your current condition is at right now, we will establish your treatment goals and then you will get an acupuncture treatment. I will explain the entire process as I go and make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
Does acupuncture hurt?
No, acupuncture is not meant to be painful. You may feel some of the needles upon insertion, but any sensation usually subside afterwards. I only use high quality needles and gentle techniques. I will make sure that you are comfortable throughout the entire process.
Digestive symptoms don’t have to control your life.
