Acupuncture for IBS

Acupuncture is one of the oldest therapies in the world, with the practice originating in China over two millennia ago. Acupuncturists treat their patients by inserting ultra -fine needles along specific points of the body, in places known as meridian lines, or key points of energy. It’s believed that doing this helps to stimulate these meridian points, alleviating symptoms of conditions both mental and physical, from depression and anxiety, to liver issues, heart problems, and diabetes.

Research has discovered that acupuncture can also help to relieve IBS symptoms – one study found it’s particularly effective at reducing stomach pain and diarrhoea when combined with moxibustion, the burning of dried mugwort on or near a person’s skin. These findings could be exciting news for IBS sufferers, as 96.7% of the study’s participants saw an improvement in their IBS symptoms – with many reporting a total recovery from the condition without any relapses!
