The turn of the seasons to colder temperature is a time to start preparing for the cold and flu season. By seeking cold and flu treatments with acupuncture in New York, you limit the risk of facing the worst symptoms of the season. If you are seeking a natural remedy to your cold, visit our clinic.

Acupuncture for influenza and the common cold refers to the traditional Chinese treatment of using thin needles to improve one's health and well-being. Working with our acupuncturist, Alida P. van Heerden provides an opportunity to limit the risk of a cold or flu. Influenza treatments focus on prevention by improving the immune system but if you already have a cold or the flu, then acupuncture treatment helps reduce the impact of symptoms and allow a faster healing process.
The impact of acupuncture treatments depends on your current health and situation. When you have a cold or flu, acupuncture can encourage natural healing and reduces the symptoms causing body discomfort. We use acupuncture in our clinic to manage symptoms and strengthen the immune system so the body recovers from the infection more quickly.
Acupuncture for influenza enhances the immune system at the time of the treatment as well as a few days after the treatment. By boosting your immune system and increasing your blood count with help from our acupuncturist in Manhattan, the immune system is able to kill off the bacteria or virus that causes sickness. As a result, the body is able to resist a cold or flu and recover quickly.
You should visit our acupuncturist in New York when you notice the first signs of a cold or flu. Treatment also helps prevent an ailment when a loved one has a cold or shows early signs of catching a sickness. By seeking treatment before the symptoms of the illness develop, you reduce the risk of poor immune health and ensure that exposure to a cold or flu will not result in sickness.
You also want to consider visiting a professional for influenza treatments in New York when you have a high risk of catching a cold or flu. Individuals who work with children, or who have exposure to large numbers of people throughout the day, will benefit from the treatments. We recommend visiting our clinic for acupuncture treatments if you want to limit the risk of catching an infection or when you have early symptoms and want to improve your immune system to recover from a cold or flu.
