Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. Recent professional guidelines classify the severity of CKD in five stages, with stage 1 being the mildest and usually causing few symptoms and stage 5 being a severe illness with poor life expectancy if untreated.

As a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific acupuncture points along the skin of the body using thin needles. According to TCM, stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians.

For CKD patients, Acupuncture can improve blood circulation, adjust qi and blood and promote the elimination of waste. Besides, it can also relieve the pain caused by serious renal damages. Commonly, it is rarely used alone but rather as an adjunct to other forms of treatment. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the main therapy that can help change patient’s life and save their damaged kidneys.
