Acupuncture & Gout

We are proud to be good acupuncturists, recognised and controlled by the governemental health departement Cofepris.

We devote our full strength to the successful interacting in genuine human to human relationships with those who are suffering from gout. 

Reversing gout has become our passion, and we get a lot of satisfaction from doing so.





Acupuncture effects

  • Pain reliever without using medicines (no more side effects).

  • Efficient healing (reversing your gout condition).

  • Reduction of inflammation.

  • Restoration of homeostasis (increasing efficiency of Liver and Kidneys).


             How does it work?

 Acupuncture promotes recovery by:

  • Improving Oxygen flow

  • Improving the flow of Nutrients, nourishing every cell

  • Stimulate the production of beneficial chemicals

  • Softening muscle spasm

  • Improving blocked blood flow, tackling blood stagnation, by local vasodilation and Angiogenesis

  • Increased circulations leads to improved Uric Acid evacuation! and helps to rebuild organs

At The Gout Clinic, acupuncture is our most effective treatment. We screen a patient, every day, with Acugraph* and balance "meridians" to achieve ideal healing conditions. Secondly, and more important, we use dr. Tan and Master Tung style acupuncture to heal the "sick" channels (Kidney, Liver, Spleen, ..) and to tackle the pain. We have optimised our acupuncture protocols, during the last years to heal gout efficiently. Further, we use Auriculotherapy, Scalp, Korean hand, Korean SaAm, Abdominal, Nose, Navel and Electro-acupuncture, Motor point release and Trigger Point release.

We always use super pulsed laser stimulation after needle insertion, sometimes together with mechanical stimulation as well as electrical stimulation ("e-stim").

In Short, Acupuncture stimulates the body's natural ability to heal itself! We just push it a bit in the right direction.

The Gout Clinic is also the home of PACO, Pacific Acupuncture Centre of Oaxaca.


The Primary goal

  • Reversing your gout condition without prescription medicines and side effects.

  • Fast and efficient pain management during a gout attack. Acupuncture releases natural painkillers. Inserting a needle sends a signal through the nervous system to the brain. As a result, in the brain, and spinal cord, chemicals are released, efficiently blocking the transmission of pain sensation. These are natural, potent, opiates produced in the body. They circulates for several hours when released. 

What can we do?

We have developed gout acupuncture in depth, today we achieve:

  • Restoring disturbed balances in the body, see the video above.

  • Tackle gout pain, instant effect, with no side effects.

  • Increased local blood flow. Restoring proper blood flow is vital to curing gout because everything the body needs to heal is delivered locally by the blood flow, this is important treating acute attacks as well as for repairing organs.

  • Stimulating the body’s built-in gout (Bi syndrome) healing mechanisms, improve the efficiency of kidneys, liver, and spleen. Or in other words, tackle the origin of your gout.

  • Motor point acupuncture and dry needling of trigger points causes shortened, stresses muscles, to relax. Releasing pressure on joint structures, arteries, and nerves, promoting further blood flow and Uric Acid evacuation.

  • Reduces stress; recent research confirmed that acupuncture stimulates the release of hormones and signaling substance that regulates the parasympathetic nervous system. For this reason, we include in each treatment points like GV20.

    A vertebra perfusion acupuncture treatment will ease the sympathetic nervous system.

  • Nerve stimulation, especially people with neuropathy will feel relief.

  • Today, the body is still a great mystery on many levels, but that is OK!  So, yes, it might look like magic. We always enjoy the look of new amazed gout patient, receiving our acupuncture treatment, and, PAIN GONE!  In seconds!​

Most people feel minimal pain when we insert the thin needles. The needles are inserted to a depth that produces a slight sensation of pressure, warmth, electricity or ache.

There are a few exceptions; needle insertion in those points (e.g. KD1) can be a painful experience, once inserted, the pain fades away. We inform you prior using such "painful" points, and when a patient does not want acupuncture treatments on these points, we apply straight laser therapy instead.
