It is hard to believe Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone. We hope you were able to enjoy the holiday with good food, family and friends.
Acupuncture for Immunity
It is that time of year again – the weather is getting colder here in Vancouver, the days are getting shorter, and colds and flus are on the rise.
Whether you have already been hit by the bug or you are trying to stay healthy, acupuncture is a safe, drug-free way to maintain your health this winter.
If treatment is initiated quickly enough, acupuncture can sometimes stop a cold or flu dead in its tracks before it has a chance to establish a foothold in the body. Many of the acupuncture points used for cold and flu stimulate the body’s immune response. At the very least, acupuncture can lessen the severity and duration of an upper respiratory infection.
Treatments are individualized focusing on the root of the imbalance or weakness in the body. By strengthening resistance from within, illness can be prevented and health maintained year round.
Stay warm, stay well, wash your hands often, and get acupuncture!
