Can acupuncture therapy treat the common cold and flu?

When it comes to staying healthy during the cold and flu season – Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy has a lot to offer; but you needn’t wait until you’re sick for a treatment. Being pro-active with your health can in fact prevent colds and flus from developing, with acupuncture therapy helping to fuel your immune system. How? Well, acupuncture needles are inserted into key points along the body – known as energy pathways or meridians – and when energy flows through these points your body’s blood circulation is bolstered, your energy boosted and the outer defence layers of your skin and muscle are strengthened, ignited and reinforced; making it hard for nasty bugs and germs to pass.
