Acupuncture for Digestive Disorders in London
Most people suffer from indigestion and other digestive disorders from time to time. When digestive symptoms become frequent, they may be a larger issue that needs to be addressed. There is no denying that some very modern maladies are on the increase. Irritable bowel syndrome, that spectrum of general digestive unpleasantness, afflicts an estimated 10 to 20 per cent of the UK population. More serious, perhaps, are the inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. A 2012 study published in the journal Gastroenterology indicated that inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are emerging as a global problem.
Symptoms can vary and may include stomach pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and changing appetite and some of the many causes are believed to stem from emotional stress, poor dietary habits, antibiotics or drug use, and toxin exposure.
Acupuncture is a system of medicine, which describes in detail the functioning of the body and how it produces energy. With this understanding, treatments are focused, primarily on addressing the root cause rather than on just the symptoms. Many clinical trials researching the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of digestive disorders have presented data which indicates that it can have positive results on conditions such as dryness of the mouth, functional disturbances like reflux, nausea and vomiting, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, inflammatory processes in the intestines, obesity, diabetes mellitus, gout and cholecystitis.

I’m really well looked after by Archna and feel my needs are being treated with care on a weekly basis. Would highly recommend to anyone!
“I have really enjoyed my experience going to Archna I was hesitant at first having never tried accupuncture before but have found it to be a very effective compliment to other treatments. Archna has treated my for stress, lower back pain and allergies. I was surprised how effective acupuncture can be and what a wonderful practioner Archna is. The location is very convienent I can go right after work.”
“Sitting in the office all day and working without much movement during the week, my neck and back have bothered me for months. I was recommended accupuncture with Archna and after initial skepticism of needles and acupuncture in general, I made an appointment with Archna. My experience was excellent and she has relieved my of my aches, whether in neck, head, back, hips etc. I am a regular with Archna now and very happy! Highly recommend her!”

“I went to Archna initially with a very painful bursitis which couldn’t be treated with physiotherapy apart from steroid injections. She managed to treat my shoulder in a few sessions and I started to feel so much better. What I love about Archna is that she is very professional and she explains exactly what she is doing. She has an amazingly calm energy which helps you relax into the treatment and the session. I am a regular client now as she has helped me with many other issues from digestive issues to tension and even emotional imbalance. I look forward to my sessions as I leave feeling so relaxed and very light which are a result of the acupuncture but also Archna’s magical touch and energy.”
“My experience at the Acupuncturists was wonderful, every time since I have started seeing Archna over two years ago. She is a fantastic practitioner, really knowledgeable and very focused on providing the best treatment possible. She is very professional and knows how to adjust each treatment so that when you leave you feel much better then when you arrived. She has helped me with stress, back pain, shoulder tension, digestive issues and common cold relief. I would highly recommend Archna to anyone looking to receive treatment.”
“Archna is the most professional, knowledgeable and caring acupuncturist I have seen so far. I will get treated by no one else in the future. Archna not only has over 20 years of acupuncture experience, but in addition she is the only practitioner in her field who I have met, who takes a holistic and much more thorough approach for treating her patients. Archna is efficient, to the point, and extremely skilled. I have recommended Archna to several friends, who are all as happy as I am. I cannot recommend Archna enough and wish I had found her earlier! Thank you Archna!”
