Have your ever noticed that people often get sick with a cold or allergies right around the change of Seasons? It takes energy to shift from one season to the next and if the body’s immune system is already slightly weakened, a cold, virus or allergy has a better chance to talk hold. Seasonal Acupuncture treatments boost the immune system and assist the body in making the transition from one season to the next. These treatments have a cumulative effect on the body and with each seasonal treatment the immune system becomes better able to fight off colds, viruses and allergic reactions. Specific acupuncture points are selected each season to boost the body’s natural immune defenses for the season we are transitioning into. The treatments are relaxing and energizing at the same time. At Community Acupuncture of Longwood we also have B12 shots which are given in the top immune boosting acupuncture location. Thus, stimulating the body even more to stay healthy and energized.
