Acupuncture can get things moving for you
If you find it very hard to have a bowel movement or usually have less than three bowel movements per week then you have constipation.
Hard, dry, difficult to pass stools that are not happening often can make you feel uncomfortable, unwell and be very painful.
A course of acupuncture treatment is actually better at improving long-lasting difficulty having a bowel movement than medication according to scientific research (1).
