Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can have varying presentations, all of which can greatly and negatively impact a person’s life. Most suffer all too often and have given up on their well being. Many believe that it is simply something that they must suffer through, especially when under stress. You deserve to live well. We have used gentle acupuncture to successfully treat this condition. Along the way, other benefits take place, such as more energy and weight loss. Our clients are amazed at how well they can feel. They look forward to their sessions, which leave them relaxed and feeling great.
IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) has had a profound impact on my life. Consultations with an acupuncturist to manage IBS has reduced the frequency of my attacks and has reduced the stagnant, pervasive stress that can cause an attack.

Dorothy Pang, L.Ac. specializes in the treatment of digestive disorders with Traditional Chinese medicine.
Dr. Dorothy says, “Very often, when a client walks into my office with a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), they will find that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine work together to curb their symptoms very quickly. What has sometimes been a lifetime of suffering can soon be controlled surprisingly rapidly.”
A randomized study of patients with IBS, conducted in the year 2000 in New York, showed that acupuncture care helped all of the patients involved that had been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Quality of life scores improved as patients reported feeling less pain and less hardship under stress. Stress perception was also shown to have been reduced. Follow-up showed that patients were still feeling better, with pain still being controlled four weeks later.View the study here.
