Acupuncture for Raynaud’s Disease
Raynaud’s Disease is constricted blood vessels in the hands and feet causing the fingers or toes to turn blue or white. The symptoms include discoloration, numbness or tingling and coolness at the fingers or toes.
How does acupuncture work for Raynaud’s Disease?
A recent study indicates that acupuncture surpasses drug treatment for Raynaud’s disease. Acupuncture treatment regulates brain chemistries/nervous system to balance the function of vasoconstriction, and improve blood circulation in the affected areas.
Course of treatment
There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
