Acupuncture for Gastroparesis

Acupuncture at Stomach 36

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be very effective for improving gastric motility and the treatment of constipation.

I have treated many people with gastroparesis and can tell you that acupuncture is very helpful for this issue.  Many research studies have shown that acupuncture and electroacupuncture stimulate gastric motility and can be helpful for gastropariesis.

Some of the most effective acupuncture points are ST 36 , Ren 10, And St 25 on the abdomen.

Acupuncture can also help by boosting the body’s energy and getting rid of the heat. From a western science perspective, we’re not completely sure how it works. But it may help by “waking up” the nerves in your digestive tract and reminding your brain how communicate with the gut.

Regulating gastric motility can help in many digestive conditions include Irritable Bowel Syndrome and constipation.
