About Asthma

Asthma is a condition which causes a patient to produce extra mucus, experience swelling, narrowing and inflammation of the airways and have difficulties breathing. Asthma often causes wheezing, coughing and chest pain. Asthma can be a minor hindrance or something that impacts daily activities. Some patients could even have a life-threatening asthma attack. The most common treatments in America are rescue inhalers and controller inhales which can treat or even prevent symptoms. For more severe cases, longer-acting inhalers and steroids may be used.

Asthma Acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be a wonderful treatment for asthma, helping patients to breathe better and avoid attacks. A study that was conducted by the Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care in the University Hospital of Vienna showed the acupuncture can actually reduce the severity and frequency of asthma attacks, with 70% of the patients in the study having a significant improvement following acupuncture treatment.
