For Acute Viral Infections

Acupuncture is very useful for acute viral infections.

Western medicine does not have too much to offer for the common cold,(antibiotics do not act on viruses), so the usually recommended “supporting therapy” (rest-fluids-it-will-go-away) can be wondefully complemented with Traditional Chinese methods to eliminate the acute “wind invasion”.

At the onset of your early cold symptoms,

  • sore throat
  • nasal drip
  • sinusitis
  • viral bronchitis
  • stomach flu, and so on...
  • ...our treatments can clear up your condition expeditiously, allowing you to return to work next day with rejuvenated energy, and practically without symptoms, versus the usual being down and suffering for three, five, or more days.

    80% improvement of symptoms You`ll get 80% better immediately during one treatment session!! The explanation is simple. Not easy to do, though, you might need Gua Sha, Cherry Blossom, and other techniques.

    Viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi need a good host to colonize. When your natural defense goes down, (weak Qi and Qi stagnation), the mucose membranes provide a friendly environment for the germs so they can grow, eventually overcoming the body`s local natural defense and immune system. The clinical signs of inflammation arise, manifesting in redness, swelling, pain, and fever.

    At the time the onset of early symptoms, the attack is still superficial, an optimal time to intervene. Piquering the respective underlying meridians, we can flush the area with Qi, and connecting appropriate meridians we can eliminate the noxious agents from the system.

    I know it almost sounds too good to be true but when you got hit with the flu or other minor but momentary debilitating viral illness, think of trying acupuncture to get better fast.
