Acupuncture and Seizures
Acupuncture helps to restore the flow of Qi (life energy) throughout the body. Qi flows along pathways known as meridians and it is this energy force that is believed to play a role in the health and vitality of the body.
In an individual with epilepsy and/or PNES, the flow of Qi is often impeded, and through acupuncture those imbalances can be harmonized. There have been numerous studies done proving the efficacy of acupuncture on seizure disorders.
The Rocky Mountain Center for Epilepsy collaborates with Elizabeth Astor – MSOM, L.Ac, Dipl. OM, CHom who, in addition to acupuncture, offers homeopathy, Chinese herbs, and oriental medical techniques to support individuals with seizure disorders.
