Aperçu du document


Lymphedema Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a treatment method based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The practitioner
inserts very thin needles in specific points (Acu-points) along energy pathways (meridians). The
stimulation of those points helps to adjust and balance the flow of energy and restore health.
According to the National Institute of Health, over one million people in the US receive acupuncture
annually. There is evidence that the stimulation of acupuncture points can affect internal organs by
means of nerve reflex pathways (the autonomic nervous system). Acupuncture increases the
release of natural pain-relieving chemicals called endorphins. It stimulates the pituitary gland,
which in turn activates the adrenal gland to release anti-inflammatory chemicals.

Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver
Traditional Chinese Medicine has developed over more than 2000 years. It includes herbal
medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui Na), exercise (Qi Gong) and dietary therapy. Acupuncture is
one of the main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
During the initial evaluation the practitioner of Chinese Medicine will listen to your pulse and
examine your tongue. There will be a thorough questioning of your current and past health history.
An extensive physical examination will include palpation of painful areas and general observation
of your facial color, body type and speech. Through this process we can establish an accurate
assessment of your condition and develop a treatment plan based on Chinese medicine.
In Chinese medicine, there are many cases in which specific illnesses are treated before symptoms
arise. This is the true essence of the medicine. We might suggest dietary or life style changes to
assist you in achieving better overall long-term health.
Herbal treatment is an integrative part of Chinese Medicine and together with acupuncture has
been used in the treatment of acute and chronic disorders. Generally, for acute conditions, e.g. a
viral infection, Chinese herbs should be taken everyday 3-6 times per day until the condition
resolves. For chronic conditions herbs are most effective when they are taken daily 2-3 times per
day for a longer period of time.

What is Lymphedema?
When a person has lymphedema the ability of the lymphatic system to transport fluid has been
compromised. This results in an accumulation of protein rich fluid in the tissue spaces that cannot
move back effectively through the lymph vessels. The excess swelling decreases the oxygenation of
the tissues and interferes with normal cell function.
Lymphatic dysfunction may also be related to a malformation of the lymphatic system from birth.
This is considered primary or congenital lymphedema. It most commonly manifests in females and
most often only one limb is affected. In primary lymphedema the lymph vessels are inadequate to
transport fluid efficiently. This condition can appear at birth, at puberty or later in life.
