Acupuncture for Asthma

NYC Asthma AcupunctureAt its core, asthma is an immune disorder. The main symptoms of asthma, wheezing and shortness of breath, are manifestations of the body's immune response to pathogens found in the environment. Our experience has shown us that in the majority of asthma cases, the patient has an imbalanced immune system. Thus, our treatments focus on balancing and strengthening the immune system. Many patients report significant, lasting benefits in just a few sessions of treatment.

Acupuncture has also been shown to have beneficial effects on the primary symptoms of asthma. It can improve pulmonary function and lessen the severity of asthma attacks. Depending on the specific situation, we may recommend traditional acupuncture or a combination of acupuncture and exercise in accordance with our Active Acupuncture philosophy. We urge you to read through the patient testimonials and related research and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us!


-Richard Q, Active Acupuncture Patient, NYC, New York
After suffering from asthma for 10 years, I was a bit skeptical that Eastern medicinal techniques, namely acupuncture and forms of acupressure excercises, could help what strong steroids and bronchio-diolators could only pacify. After massaging my back and having no prior medical information, they instantly knew I had asthma since I was seven. They made me do these exercises that had me sweating after ten seconds. I was reassured that that only meant it was working. Most types of physical activity work out muscles, but according to them, the exercises worked out the organs, in my case, lungs. The acupuncture part proved to be equally successful. I felt very calm and relaxed during the 15 minutes I laid on the table and my breathing was getting better. After five sessions, all similar to what I just described, my asthma went away thanks to the acupunture that stimulated my lungs and the exercises I will do every day and every night for the next year.

The week prior to visiting Acupunture for Natural Healing, I was taking Albuterol(the most common fast acting inhaler) at least two times a day. After this practically miraculous experience, I have been completely free of asthma medication for the first time in a long while. That being said, not only do these people know what they are doing and give the care people like me so desperately want, but they changed my life forever, and for that, I am eternally greatful.
