AcuSpa Serves the Greater Orlando Area
Fatigue can be more than just being tired a lot. Some people’s fatigue can be so debilitating that it hinders their daily lives, making it hard to function at all. People who suffer from fatigue can have trouble staying on top of their home and job responsibilities. In addition, their fatigue is often accompanied by a variety of other symptoms, including flu-like symptoms, chronic pain, diarrhea, easy bruising, amenorrhea, frequent urination and low libido.
According to Acupuncture and Oriental Medical theory, blockages in the body’s life energy or Qi (chee) are responsible for illness and disease. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine seeks to restore the natural flow of Qi, returning the body to harmony and optimal health. Treatment for fatigue may involve acupuncture and herbal medicine with the goal of strengthening a weakened immune system, boosting vital energy, nourishing the blood, promoting the proper elimination of toxins, and improving relaxation as well as strengthening mental function.
Deficiency of Qi or life energy means that there isn’t enough functional energy within a given organ to perform its necessary duties When Spleen Qi is deficient, the body is unable to properly digest foods, and one can feel especially tired after eating. When Heart Qi is deficient, fatigue is predominant in the morning upon waking. Liver Qi deficiency is seen in fatigue that predominates in the afternoon.
An Acupuncture Physician will conduct a thorough initial examination in order to accurately diagnose the underlying cause of a patient’s fatigue. A unique treatment plan, including acupuncture and possibly Chinese herbs, will be the starting point for relief from fatigue, and restoration of optimal health.
Acupuncture for fatigue is used to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with fatigue. Acupuncture helps us achieve balance and control, comfort and focus, and joy in living. We have a lot of potential in our bodies but at times it can be misguided. The needles are very slender. They are about the thickness of two human hairs. Treatments are always carried out with sterile and disposable needles. They are used once and then discarded. All needles are approved by the FDA. Most insertions are just beneath the skin`s surface which enables the skilled acupuncture practitioner to place a needle with little or no sensation. We have great success in helping clients apply acupuncture to help with their fatigue.
