Acupuncture can boost your immunity, decrease your usual aches and pains, increase endurance, improve digestive and respiratory function, balance hormones, and boost your mood. It stimulates the body’s own intrinsic healing responses. Treating our body well when we are young and healthy helps keep these systems integrated as we age, allowing us to be active and heal quickly from trauma or infection. But the wear and tear of life can affect us, leaving us more susceptible to injury and illness. This is where acupuncture and herbal medicine can help, stimulating and enhancing our intrinsic healing responses.
