Respiratory Conditions

Treating Respiratory Conditions With Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

As with all the organs in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the lungs are considered to be much more than just a physical organ but a whole energy system that encompasses functional as well as physical aspects.  The throat, nose and sinuses, as well as the skin, are part of the lung system and many different conditions such as the common cold, sinus infections, allergies, asthma and bronchitis are under the control of the lung system.


At AromaOasis, not only do we offer acupuncture treatment tailored to your choric and acute lung conditions, but we also incorporate cupping, external herbal applications, and/or other modalities in order to maximize the therapeutic benefit and accelerate the process of your recovery.  Dr. Jennifer Gao has many years of experience to help the following respiratory conditions:

  • Acute or Chronic cough
