What Acupuncture Can Do For You

From a western medical perspective, acupoints placed in dermatomes (sensory nerves of the skin) can effect changes in the nervous system. In hyperhidrosis then, needles inserted into acupoints found in the T2-T4 dermatome areas can be used to temper the over activity of the sympathetic system (that controls sweat gland function) to reduce sweating and regulate normal body temperature. Points that are commonly used for stress relief and relaxation can also lessen the impact of any aggravating factors such as shyness, anxiety, or emotional turbulence.

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, the points used to treat a condition such as hyperhidrosis would be dependent on an individual person’s accompanying signs and symptoms, overall health, and lifestyle. This means that not all persons suffering from hyperhidrosis would necessarily be treated alike. Both local and distal points (away from the area of concern) may be used with different point combinations to address a particular person’s condition and general constitution. The primary goals of TCM and acupuncture would be to regulate excessive sweating by correcting any energetic balances in the body based on pattern differentiation, and to harmonize the mind and body so that emotional disturbances do not aggravate the condition further.

Through the years I've tried it for compensatory hyperhidrosis and more recently nerve regeneration, no noticeable effects. :(

However I have managed to get fitter and healthier (losing two stones in the process) over the last two years, so I think it maybe helped with energy levels which I was grateful for. :)
