Acupuncture for Asthma treatment

As an alternative or supplement to medication, acupuncture can alleviate some of the safety concerns associated with prolonged use of asthma drugs.

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It's based on the theory that energy, called chi, flows through and around the body along pathways called meridians.Illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances the chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance.
