Acupuncture for the Immune System

Navigate a healthy seasonal transition!

Summer is behind us and the kids have settled into school.  The holidays are on the horizon, as is the dreaded cold and flu season.  We want you to be healthy and happy this winter, which means taking great care of yourself this fall!

Eating well, exercising, and getting enough rest are so important to staying healthy. However, we can all use a little extra help in fortifying our immune systems and promoting balance and relaxation.

Life doesn’t have to be a chain of never-ending colds!

Acupuncture helps stimulate the immune system and promote optimal flow of energy in the body.  We utilize acupuncture, herbal medicine, and complementary modalities such as cupping and MOXA to bolster the body’s natural defenses against pathogenic influences, ie. colds and flus. 

Acupuncture is SAFE and free from the negative side effects commonly associated with medications like drowsiness and fogginess. In fact, the side effects of acupuncture include improved quality of sleep and more balanced mood throughout the day!

Finding Balance

How does acupuncture work for immune support?  Acupuncture has a regulatory effect on the body.  In other words, it helps return the body to homeostasis, or balance.  A treatment can tonify a deficient condition by building up and accessing the body’s reserves, RESTORING ENERGY and function.  Or, a treatment can calm and clear conditions that are considered excess, or gumming up the works.

Studies show that acupuncture stimulates innate immune response by augmenting NK cell activity, activating cytokine production, increasing blood flow, and much more.

 

Come in for your seasonal acupuncture treatment and create a self-care plan to get you through the upcoming wet and cold months.
