I am thinking of trying acupuncture to treat my rather severe and ongoing asthma. Has anyone out there used acupuncture in their treatment?

  1. Hi JoJo (Joan) and thanks for your inquiry. While you hear from other community members who have personal experience with acupuncture and asthma, I thought you might find it helpful to look over this material on that very subject:

        1. Hi, Joan. I tried acupuncture for a few months, before resigning myself to the need for daily inhalers. I always felt that I could breathe better after the treatments, but the effect was short-lived. It may have been the result of relaxing in a quiet, dimly lit room with an air purifier and a salt lamp as much as the acupuncture itself. If you have the time for frequent treatments, acupuncture may be helpful as a supplement to your medical treatments.
