Acupuncture and respiratory disorders

Acupuncture can help control common respiratory conditions such as asthma, hayfever, sinusitis and their accompanying symptoms.

Recent research in Japan has shown that acupuncture treatment improves breathing and quality of life for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The results were "on a par with, or better than" the results normally obtained with drugs such as steroids and bronchodilators, and special breathing exercises, the researchers said.
