Energy Support

with Acupuncture

There are many causes for chronic and daily fatigue, and our acupuncturists are expertly trained in assessing your health and getting to the root cause of your lowered energy levels. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can provide amazing results in boosting your energy levels, helping you maintain consistent energy throughout the day (no ‘afternoon crash’ or morning grogginess) and supporting your body to be able to participate in all the daily activities you desire!

Acupuncture for

Immune System Support

Acupuncture has been shown to boost white blood cell count and function, which is your body’s natural immune response. Many patients report fewer colds and flus and better resilience to situations in daily life that frequently cause illness (poor air quality, airplane travel, sick children in the household, etc.) Patients with lowered immune function benefit from regular acupuncture and can monitor Ig levels with their primary care provider to see these results! Regular and consistent acupuncture is most beneficial for longterm immune support, but some patients enjoy benefits with a few sessions right before travel or other immune-challenging events.

Mental Focus

Lack of mental focus, poor short term memory, and ‘brain fog’ can be extremely frustrating and puzzling symptoms of an otherwise healthy body. Acupuncture can help reduce brain fog and help sharpen your mental acuity for improved quality of life! Your acupuncturist will assess what may be causing these symptoms and may suggest dietary, herbal or supplement recommendations to help provide lasting results.

Relief from 

Seasonal Allergies

Acupuncture is incredibly effective at reducing symptoms and severity of seasonal allergies! Itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat, and MORE can be relieved with acupuncture and herbal medicines. For more information on acupuncture for seasonal allergies (aka: ‘allergic rhinitis’) view the EBA booklet. For best results, starting acupuncture a few weeks before the spring ‘allergy season’ is most effective and produces the longest lasting results. 

Similar allergic responses to dust, pets, and other allergens can be treated with acupuncture as well.

Relief from

Cold & Flu Symptoms

Traditional Chinese medicine is full of remedies and helpful treatments for a variety of cold and flu symptoms. Although leaving the house isn’t the most appealing idea when you’re feeling under the weather - one or two acupuncture sessions and potent doses of Chinese herbal medicines can help QUICKLY reduce symptoms and severity of cold, flu, stomach flu, and other illnesses. Please alert your acupuncturist if this is your condition so they can provide adequate self protection (gloves and masking) and ensure we have the correct herbal formulas onhand for your speedy recovery!
