Denver Acupuncture Chronic Rhinitis Treatment
We treat chronic rhinitis all the time in our practice, with great results. What is chronic rhinitis? It’s a non-allergic runny nose and post nasal drip. People with this condition either take medications all the time to control the drip, or they live with their nose running all the time. Acupuncture offers a safe, effective way to heal this condition.
How Does The Denver Acupuncture Chronic Rhinitis Treatment Work?
Chronic runny nose and accompanying post nasal drip are most often caused by a weakness in a person’s Lung and Spleen function. This is not their Western anatomical lungs and spleen. Rather, they are the organs that Chinese medicine traditionally recognizes as being responsible for symptoms involving runny nose. This is very important because once we know the “organs” responsible for the condition, we can use acupuncture points that influence them. These specific acupuncture points will strengthen the Lungs and Spleen, resulting in a resolution of symptoms.
Most of the acupuncture points we use are located from the elbows and knees down. A very powerful Lung point is located on the palm side of the wrist. A strong Spleen point is located on the lower leg below the knee. When we needle these points, we activate something called Qi (pronounced Chi), which acts like a messenger to the organ. In this way we can affect internal organ function from the surface of the body.
What To Expect From Your Denver Acupuncture Chronic Rhinitis Treatment
All the needles we use are sterile, single-use and hair thin. Insertion is painless. Once the needles are in, you will feel very relaxed. Many of our patients fall asleep in the table during treatment. Afterwards you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. With each treatment, your symptoms will gradually be reduced, until they are resolved.
