Find constipation relief that can be more effective than medication, with the powerful therapeutic effect of acupuncture.

For women who suffer from this uncomfortable condition, acupuncture treatment can offer significant relief and improve overall digestive health. In a study conducted by Zhang et al. in 2018, the benefits of acupuncture for constipation in women were explored, shedding light on its effectiveness over prescription medications.

At Allied Acupuncture Gold Coast in Burleigh Waters, we understand the unique challenges women face when it comes to their health, and we offer acupuncture treatments tailored to address constipation and promote overall well-being.

Constipation affects millions of women worldwide.

Constipation can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, poor diet, hormonal changes, and certain medical conditions. For women seeking a natural and holistic approach to alleviate constipation, acupuncture can be an effective option.

The study conducted by Zhang et al. in 2018 examined the effects of acupuncture on women suffering from constipation. The researchers found that acupuncture treatment significantly improved bowel movement frequency, stool consistency, and overall quality of life. Acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body, promoting the smooth flow of energy (known as Qi) and activating the body’s natural healing response. By targeting the underlying imbalances contributing to constipation, acupuncture helps restore proper digestive function often with only 1 needle.
