the second brain

Scientists refer to the gut as “The Second Brain” because there is an extraordinary connection between the function of our digestive system and how our brains, bodies, and emotions function.

Diet, chronic stress, and poor sleep habits can lead to all kinds of digestive disorders, which in turn leads to long-term health problems like heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes.

While some people find their symptoms disabling, others go through life not knowing anything is wrong until they come face to face with a serious health issue.

Conditions We Treat

Stomach Pain
Gas & Bloating

Irregular Appetite

how does acupuncture improve gut health?

Dating back over 2,000 years, this ancient technique has successfully restored balance and enhanced well-being in countless individuals. One area where acupuncture has shown remarkable efficacy is in improving digestive health. Acupuncture targets specific points on the body to regulate and optimize the digestive system.

Acupuncture's impact on digestive health is truly remarkable. Whether you're seeking relief from chronic digestive issues or simply aiming to enhance your overall gut health, acupuncture offers a gentle yet effective approach to rejuvenating your digestive well-being. Embrace the wisdom of centuries and experience the transformative effects of acupuncture on your digestive health today.


Chronic constipation: Studies have shown that acupuncture can stimulate peristalsis (movement) in the intestinal tract, which is essential for healthy bowel movements.

Nausea and vomiting: Acupuncture is an effective way to calm an upset stomach. Just a few sessions can greatly reduce or eliminate symptoms altogether.

Painful bloating and gas: Regular acupuncture treatments can help your digestive system break down foods properly without the excess gas that causes bloating.
