Acupuncture for chronic fatigue syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a commonly diagnosed illness, but it is one that has baffled medical researchers for years. Becoming an official named diagnosis in 1988, medical professionals have conducted countless studies and research attempting to figure out why Chronic Fatigue Syndrome occurs. It remains unclear.

Although its origin is unknown, scientists have been able to develop therapies and medications that aid in the improvement of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome symptoms such as,

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Emotional Stress
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Depression
  • Injured Immune Function
  • Reoccurring headaches
  • Vision issues

A study conducted by researchers at the Beijing Chaoyang Fatou Community Health Service Center showed that Acupuncture treatments significantly increased symptom relief in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients.

With over 2.5 million people (about twice the population of Hawaii) in the world who experience varied symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, doctors and practitioners have begun to look to alternative treatments, such as Acupuncture. Acupuncture works in ways that pharmaceutical medications cannot. While prescription medications provide temporary relief, Acupuncture can allow patients to experience long-term symptom alleviation. The difference? Acupuncture targets the root cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, instructing the body to kick-start self-healing processes to areas most affected, like the Brain and the Thyroid.

Acupuncture also releases important body hormones associated with adrenaline, “feel good” emotions, and wakefulness. These naturally producing hormones, called Endorphins, boost mood, which improves Depression symptoms and allows the body to feel more energized. Relaxin, another hormone triggered by Acupuncture therapy, aids in patients feeling less anxious.

These processes enable patients to have a better quality of life over a period of time. When Acupuncture is used continuously as part of a balanced regimen, patients can see a drastic improvement in their Chronic Fatigue Syndrome symptoms such as,

  • Mental health elevations
  • Physiological functionality improvement
  • Sleep routine improvement
  • Better alert fullness and wakefulness
  • Higher social function
  • Increased energy
  • Decreased pain sensation

    My Name is John Kim

    I have been a licensed acupuncturist since 2000. When I first started my acupuncture career, my primary goal as a practitioner was to help people anguishing from living with pain everyday of their lives. I have seen on numerous occasions what chronic pain can do to a person physically but also seen how it can debilitate a person’s psyche as well.

    Throughout the years, I have studied, developed and incorporated a very unique treatment protocol that has successfully treated and effectively reduced pain levels on chronic pain patients. I have combined traditional methods of acupuncture along with modern, research proven techniques to help reduce chronic pain symptoms in a safe, non- chemically addictive, and effective process.
