Acupuncture & Herbs: Restoring Balance for Tingling Sensations in Beaverton, Oregon
Understanding Tingling Sensations: From Minor Nuisance to Medical Concern
Tingling sensations, often described as pins and needles or prickling, can range from mild annoyances to bothersome disruptions in daily life. While occasional tingling is harmless, persistent or severe cases can signal underlying medical conditions.
Common Causes of Tingling:
- Vitamin deficiencies: Lack of vitamin B12, vitamin B6, or vitamin E can lead to nerve issues and tingling sensations.
- Diabetes: Chronically high blood sugar can damage nerves, causing tingling, numbness, and pain.
- Autoimmune diseases: Conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis can affect nerves and cause tingling.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: Repetitive wrist movements can compress the median nerve, leading to tingling and numbness in the hand.
- Thyroid disorders: Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause tingling sensations.
Traditional Asian Medicine: A Holistic Approach to Tingling Relief
Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Beaverton, Oregon, employs a holistic approach rooted in Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM) to address tingling sensations. TAM views the body as an interconnected system where imbalances manifest as symptoms, including tingling.
Acupuncture for Tingling Relief:
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow (qi). Dr. Sohn tailors acupuncture treatments to address the underlying cause of your tingling, promoting nerve healing and reducing discomfort.
“I had tingling and numbness in my hands for months. After a few acupuncture sessions with Dr. Sohn, I significantly improved. The tingling is almost gone, and I can finally sleep comfortably again.” – Sarah K., Beaverton
Herbal Medicine for Tingling Management:
Dr. Sohn may also recommend herbal remedies to complement acupuncture treatments. TAM herbs, like ginseng, astragalus, and rehmannia, possess anti-inflammatory and nerve-protective properties, supporting overall healing and reducing tingling sensations.
“I was hesitant about trying herbs, but Dr. Sohn assured me they were safe and effective. Along with acupuncture, the herbal formula he prescribed has helped manage my tingling and improve my energy levels.” – John L., Portland
Finding the Right Treatment for You: A Collaborative Approach
Dr. Sohn emphasizes the importance of individualization in TAM. He works closely with each patient to understand their unique needs and develop a personalized treatment plan that combines acupuncture, herbal medicine, and lifestyle recommendations.
