Soothe Racing Hearts: Exploring Traditional Asian Medicine for Palpitation Relief in Oregon
Palpitations, those unsettling fluttering or thumping sensations in your chest, can be a source of anxiety and discomfort. While conventional medicine offers valuable diagnostic and treatment pathways, many Oregonians are turning to Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM) for a holistic approach to managing palpitations and promoting overall well-being.
Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Beaverton, Oregon, embodies this integrative approach. With many years of experience, Dr. Sohn leverages the wisdom of TAM to restore balance within the body, addressing the root cause of palpitations rather than simply masking symptoms.
Acupuncture: A Needlepoint Path to Harmony
Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TAM, involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body. These points connect with meridians, pathways through which vital energy, or qi, flows. By stimulating these points, acupuncturists aim to harmonize qi flow, addressing imbalances that can manifest as palpitations, anxiety, and other health concerns.
“After struggling with palpitations for years, I was hesitant to try acupuncture,” shares Sarah B. from Portland. “But after just a few sessions with Dr. Sohn, I noticed a significant difference. My heart rate stabilized, and the fluttering sensations became much less frequent. I’m so grateful for this natural approach to managing my heart health.”
Dr. Sohn tailors acupuncture treatments to each individual’s unique needs and palpitation triggers. This personalized approach ensures that the needles target the specific meridians and imbalances contributing to your discomfort.
Herbal Wisdom: Nature’s Remedies for a Steady Beat
TAM’s therapeutic arsenal extends beyond acupuncture needles. Dr. Sohn utilizes a vast knowledge of medicinal herbs to formulate personalized herbal blends for his patients. These blends, carefully crafted from time-tested ingredients like ginseng, magnolia bark, and jujube fruit, work synergistically to nourish the heart, calm the nervous system, and promote overall cardiovascular health.
“Dr. Sohn’s herbal remedies have been a game-changer for me,” says Michael H. from Beaverton. “The combination of acupuncture and his custom herbal teas has significantly reduced my palpitations and improved my sleep quality. I feel more balanced and in control of my well-being.”
Dr. Sohn emphasizes the importance of understanding the underlying causes of your palpitations, which may include stress, dietary factors, or underlying medical conditions. He works with patients to address these contributing factors, creating a comprehensive treatment plan promoting long-term well-being.
