Acupuncture Strengthens the Immune System

Acupuncture strengthens the immune system, helping you better resist viruses like COVID-19, flu, and colds. It is a proactive way to protect your health and build resiliency.  Acupuncture has been shown to strengthen the immune system by increasing T-cells and white blood cells. These cells are key to finding and fighting viruses! The effects of an acupuncture treatment last for a while, and can change baseline levels for days or even weeks after treatment.  Acupuncture also reduces inflammation and treats other issues that contribute to poor immune function. When these issues are addressed, the body has more resources to put into immune health and fighting off viruses.  For those with autoimmune disorders, acupuncture can also help support your immune function. Regulation through acupuncture helps both strengthen immunity and reduce overactivity, which helps create more resilient health.  Acupuncture is able to strengthen the immune system through regulation and a return to healthy function. Instead of only changing your symptoms, it is able to address root imbalances and support the complex biological systems of our body in ways that truly create health.
