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

Every acupuncture treatment is tailored to your unique situation and concerns. During your first appointment, your acupuncturist will take a detailed case history to identify factors that may be contributing to your immune concerns. Lifestyle choices, stress levels, diet and physical environment are a few of the factors you may discuss.

You will then receive a hands-on treatment that aims to provide some initial relief. This involves the insertion of fine needles into acupuncture points.

Depending on your specific case, your acupuncturist may recommend other interventions to support immunity. This may include dietary advice, Chinese herbs or gentle exercise.
