Chest indigestion treatment in Beaverton with acupuncture and herbal medicine

Understanding Chest Indigestion: A Holistic Perspective

Chest discomfort, often associated with heartburn, can encompass a range of symptoms beyond burning sensations. In Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM), indigestion is viewed as disharmony within the digestive system, often rooted in imbalances of Qi (vital energy) and Yin and Yang (opposing forces). This holistic approach considers emotional, dietary, and lifestyle factors alongside physical symptoms to understand your discomfort comprehensively.

Patient Testimonial:

“After years of medication and dietary changes, I was still battling chest pain and bloating. Dr. Sohn’s acupuncture sessions and herbal recommendations provided relief I never thought possible. I now understand my digestion on a deeper level and feel more in tune with my body.” – Sarah M., Portland, OR

Acupuncture: Unlocking Energy Flow for Digestion

Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles at specific points on the body to stimulate Qi flow and restore balance. Points associated with the digestive system, like Stomach 36 and Spleen 6, can be targeted to improve motility, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain.

How Acupuncture Works for Chest Indigestion:

  • Stimulates the vagus nerve, promoting communication between the gut and brain.
  • Enhances blood circulation, improving nutrient absorption and waste removal.
  • Reduces inflammation and pain, providing immediate relief.
  • Promotes relaxation and stress reduction, addressing emotional contributors to digestive issues.

Patient Testimonial:

“I was skeptical about acupuncture initially, but I felt a noticeable difference after a few sessions. The tightness in my chest eased, and I started enjoying eating again without fear of discomfort.” – John L., Beaverton, OR
