Heartburn, also known as pyrosis is a burning sensation in the esophagus or throat caused by acid rising from the stomach.
Unlike conventional medicine, which views this as a single pathological process that is similar in all cases, the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective is that different people present with different types of acid reflux. During acupuncture the stimulation of selected acupuncture points can prevent the oesophageal sphincter from relaxing, which reduces acid reflux and heartburn.
