Sadly in the United States, we treat the problem instead of preventing it. Acupuncture builds the immune system and increases energy levels overall. In fact, each season, patients flock to the office for their “seasonal tune-up” to prevent illness in the coming season. It is better to be proactive than reactive.
We maintenance our car regularly so that it doesn’t break down but do we really do this preventative for ourselves? Treat your own body with the same respect and diligence as you would with your vehicle.
