Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Symptoms include reversible airways obstruction that results in episodic attacks of breathlessness and wheezing and bronchospasm, which is a sudden constriction of the muscles in the walls of the bronchioles. Asthma can be a very scary disease, difficulty in breathing can cause patients to become anxious and panic very easily and this can have a huge impact on the patient’s emotional well-being. Patients are also on daily medication which can also cause stress and depression. As a result of being on daily medication for asthma, patients often turn to alternative medication to help with the emotional side effects of asthma, and by bringing the body back into good health there can be a positive affect on Asthma.

Acupuncture treatments are ideal as they offer and more calming approach and therefore feeling more natural than the unavoidable prescription medicine. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese treatment that believes that energy flows through the body in opposing positive and negative forces and that any imbalance in these forces causes and disruption to the patient’s well-being. As asthma disrupts the balance of the energy flowing through the body then acupuncture can be used to treat this and has also been known to help with breathing for patients suffering with asthma.
