Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose Veins is a condition of the veins in the lower extremity of the legs that is characterized as enlarged, swollen, winding, bulging or dilated veins. They are visible under the skin showing red, purple, blue or even black colors. In some severe cases, twisted veins can look like earthworms. Patients usually feel sensations of burning, heaviness, weakness, tiredness, cramps and pains. If not promptly treated, varicose veins can also be associated with skin damage, open sores or vein thrombosis, phlebitis and sclerosis.

The Chinese perspective of Varicose Vein

Varicose veins, in the Asian medical tradition, are due to weakness of the muscles and connective tissues of the body, which are governed by the spleen network of the digestive system. With chronic weakness comes the pooling of blood and energy, leading to these gnarled veins. Our treatments focus on strengthening the spleen network, supporting healthy digestive function, toning the muscles and activating movement of blood and energy. You can use acupuncture, acupressure, and massage to stimulate blood circulation and target certain veins. Topical and herbal remedies will help reduce swelling and discoloration. Our treatment at BLI has a unique treatment protocol with combination of acupuncture/herbal medicine and non-invasive advanced technology. Call now for your consultation.
