Respiratory Health


When the lung’s function is impaired, it is usually for many different reasons according to the TCM methodology. Many illnesses affecting the nose are treated through the lung. For example, low lung Qi causes pathogens to easily enter the body which will result in cough, bronchitis, allergies, sinuses, and asthma. Sometimes low lung Qi is caused by blood not effectively reaching the pulmonary circulatory system or even emotional problems like repressed emotions. While pathogens are understood to be infecting the system, TCM methodology seeks to treat the patient and the symptom. Different symptoms indicate different reasons for an illness, including asthma. Therefore, there are different types for the same illness. This calls for specific treatment method for that specific respiratory disorder.


Acupuncture and herbs will naturally treat respiratory issues when conventional medicine is unable to provide a permanent solution. In order to promote the respiratory function, acupuncture stimulates the nervous system through points linked to the respiratory system. Acupuncture influences the body to:

  • promote healing of lung membranous tissue
  • detoxify the lungs
  • strengthen and stabilize breathing
  • increase max VO2 levels
