Acupuncture can strengthen the Immune System through its understanding. While one cold a year is normal and the body's way of cleansing the sytem, if you seem to be prone to any infection going, or feel generally low then this would be a good time to call your acupuncturist for an appointment also take special care with your diet and get plenty of rest. Stress and lack of rest often rob us of our vitality.
Also, when people suffer recurring problems: back ache or neck or shoulder problems for example, certainly see your acupuncturist when you are suffering. But do book in for a course of treatment so your underlying patterns can be rectified. Back problems for example usually occur when part of our system is deficient. Acupuncture can boost, encourage and nurture you. Relax or enliven you. And Me!
