Unlocking Relief: How Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Can Alleviate Long COVID Symptoms

Long COVID, also known as post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC), has left many individuals grappling with persistent and debilitating symptoms long after the initial COVID-19 infection or vaccine. Fatigue, brain fog, muscle pain, vertigo and shortness of breath are just a few of the challenging symptoms that long COVID patients face. In this blog post, we'll explore how acupuncture and Chinese medicine, along with our integrative therapies play a vital role in helping individuals with long COVID find relief and improve their quality of life.

Understanding Long COVID:

Long COVID is a complex and poorly understood condition, with symptoms that can vary widely from person to person. While modern medicine continues to study and uncover the mysteries of long COVID, Bodhi Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a holistic approach to addressing the physical and emotional aspects of this condition.

Our approach to treating Long COVID:

Acupuncture, an integral component of TCM, has been practiced for thousands of years to treat a wide range of ailments. At Bodhi we use Traditional Chinese Medicine along with modern integrative therapies to alleviate some of the most common long COVID symptoms:

  • Fatigue: Acupuncture stimulates energy pathways, known as meridians, to help combat the profound fatigue experienced by long COVID patients. Incorporating our bio-electric therapies have shown to increase your body's ATP production up to 500% which aids in healing and recovery.

  • Brain Fog: Improved blood flow and increased circulation through acupuncture and our other therapies help enhance cognitive function and alleviate brain fog.

  • Muscle Pain: Acupuncture's ability to reduce inflammation and release endorphins can effectively manage muscle pain and discomfort. We also use electro Acupuncture to further stimulate the body's mechanisms to heal.

  • Shortness of Breath: By promoting relaxation and improving lung function, acupuncture eases breathing difficulties.

  • Vertigo: This is a very common condition patients experience and we have great results at addressing it with our holistic treatments.

Long COVID presents unique challenges that continue to baffle the medical community. Every individual has a different set of symptoms, therefore it is very important for the practitioner to be able to personalize each treatment plan. At Bodhi TCM, Dr. Andrea Izquierdo, L.Ac. creates an individualized treatment protocol drawing from our TCM and modern therapies to ensure treatments are effective and long lasting.

We are able to provide relief and improved quality of life for those suffering from long COVID symptoms. By addressing the physical and emotional aspects of the condition, along with integrative therapies, our patients find the support they need to navigate the road to recovery.
