Acupuncturists in Brisbane to boost immunity

Are you always catching every cold, flu or respiratory infection going around? Does hayfever have you sniffling for months on end?

Acupuncture might be a treatment you’d like to try.

Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture view the immune system a little differently to Western Medicine. In TCM, the first line of defence is Wei Qi. Qi is the vital energy that the body needs to live and thrive. Wei Qi is a protective Qi that circulates just beneath the skin’s surface, regulating your immunity.

A healthy, balanced body has a strong and effective immune system. But if you are stressed, run-down, tired or depressed, your immunity may drop. This leaves you more susceptible to bacteria, viruses and other pathogens you might come across.

What to expect from your Acupuncture consultation

At the start of your consultation, your acupuncturist will take a detailed case history. This will include asking details about your current treatment schedule with your oncologist.

Once the case-taking is complete, you will receive a hands-on treatment to provide initial relief. Your treatment consists of the insertion of fine needles in acupuncture points. This aims to improve circulation and relax the nervous system. If you are experiencing pain, acupuncture may also provide an analgesic effect.

Depending on your case, your practitioner may also incorporate Tui Na massage techniques, cupping, and moxibustion.
