Different from cough coming from a common cold, lingering cough that has asthma or other conditions are behind the cough is often difficult to suppress. In that case, I usually recommend home therapy with moxa (heat therapy) and/or drinking lotus root tea to strengthen Lung energy in addition to acupuncture treatment, but such cough often doesn't go away easily.
The following is the case which showed very good result after one acupuncture treatment.
The patient in her 70s initially came to my clinic to treat other symptoms. When I was checking her pulse, she was coughing on the treatment table, so I asked her about that. She had bronchitis 4 months ago and the bronchitis got better 2 months ago, but still cough had been continuing since then.
After I performed whole body treatment and treatment for her main complaint, to treat her cough, I burned moxa, which is a kind of dried herb, on a tender point under her arm pit and attached a short needle on the same acupuncture point to bring it back home.
When she came back to my clinic 4 days after the previous treatment, she reported me that her cough reduced dramatically.
