Getting regular acupuncture treatments boosts your immune system and alleviates stress, helping to prevent you from getting sick.
Here's some important info about how we can help you with a cold or the flu.
Get acupuncture at the very first sign or threat of a cold. This means the minute you feel a little off, a tiny scratch in the throat, the slightest drip of the nose or ache in your body, schedule to come in immediately!
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can alleviate symptoms and push the pathogen out of the body while strengthening the immune system, and you may be able to catch it quick enough so you don't end up sick.
You missed the magic window and now you're sick.
Are you too late? You didn't catch it soon enough and now you are running a fever, or have copious phlegm and a cough. In this case, we cannot treat you in our communal space but we CAN prescribe an effective herbal formula that will shorten the duration of your illness and alleviate symptoms.
If you need herbal help when you are sick, please call, text, or email the clinic immediately and we will do our best to get you what you need ASAP. If you happened to already be scheduled for a treatment and are too sick to be in our treatment room; we will not ding you for a late cancellation if you buy herbs instead. The time we normally use to put your needles in will be used to help you with an herbal formula. It's better to come in and let us help you the best way we can, while protecting the other patients in our healing space.
