Smoke, Ash, Heat, Fog, Pollution, Grief……just getting through the day……we have it all right now!

There is good news, we will get through it for sure.

And we are here to help.

Many years ago I had a transformative experience with my Lungs.

As a child and through my college years, my go-to illness was bronchitis and pneumonia. All colds led there. I was sick a lot and was on a lot of antibiotics.

Then I moved in next door to an Acupuncturist…I was sick again and she came with herbs and needles and I owe her my life. After having a short course of Chinese Medicine, changing my diet a little and therapy for grief, I have NEVER had pneumonia or bronchitis again.

I have had colds but nothing like I used to experience. It was so profound I gave up my corporate business career to help others.

Lungs hold a special place for me.

Now, we are in a really tough time in every way and our Lungs are taking a hit.

We need them to breathe and we need them to process emotion (in the Chinese Medical realm), namely grief…there is a lot to grieve right now.

As Acupuncturists we are trained to treat Lung issues without antibiotics.

Lung issues like Asthma, Bronchitis, COPD, Allergies, and the Common Cold (with a negative Covid test) can improve with acupuncture treatment. Lungs also house grief and we are ready to balance out the grief as well.

Come in, get balanced, find your compass, take a nap and honor your Lungs.

How does acupuncture for respiratory issues work?

Your lungs are one of the bodies most vital organs. Our body needs oxygen – each and every cell. The lungs are responsible for delivering that oxygen throughout your bloodstream.

Acupuncture will stimulate your blood flow. An increase in your blood flow can help support your lungs and your immune system. Acupuncture treatment can also produce anti-inflammatory agents that will relax your muscles and improve your breathing.

Acupuncture is an excellent alternative to over the counter or prescriptions medicines like cough medicines, allergy shots, inhalers, or steroids.

You may experience relief within minutes of the needles being inserted.
