Try Acupuncture to Tune Immune System With the Seasons
With autumn here and plant life drying out and going dormant in preparation for winter, Adriana Royal, licensed acupuncturist at Royal Road Clinic, is ready to use acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help people boost their immune systems in order to stay in tune with the seasons.
“TCM is a 2,000-year-old medicine that looks to nature as its teacher,” says Royal. “In fall, imagine the leaves changing colors, falling from trees and eventually drying. Like fragile leaves, our lungs are susceptible to the wind and dryness in the fall. Acupuncture and other TCM modalities help prepare lungs for the cold winter months ahead.”
Royal explains that acupuncture and moxibustion can help prevent old injuries from suddenly reappearing or aching, provide a natural alternative to keep allergies under control, help one let go of negative energy and emotions, and help one slow down and turn attention inward to focus on self-care.
