Acupuncture and Cupping for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in San Diego

by Jared Lien RN Licensed Acupuncturist

Are you tired every day? Do you struggle to get through the day without coffee and other energy drinks? You are not alone. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can't be explained by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity, but doesn't improve with rest. In Chinese medicine we call this Qi and yang deficiency. Stress and a poor diet are common in people struggling with CFS. The great news is that research has shown acupuncture, cupping and moxibustion are effective at increasing your energy. One study that was conducted using acupuncture and cupping on patients suffering from CFS showed after 6 weeks they had improved energy levels, sleep, memory and better digestion (Flaws). Put down those stimulants and give your body some love. Get yourself scheduled for some acupuncture this week @lienonmeacupuncture.com.
