According to Chinese medicine, the season of autumn is associated with the Metal element which corresponds to the Lung organ. The lungs control the circulation of the "Wei-Qi", which is the body's defensive Qi that protects you from the invasion of flu and colds. It is also associated with the emotions of "letting go"; for example, those who find it difficult to let go of the summer.
With the change in weather, our bodies' defensive qi weakens thus making it easier to catch the flu & cold bug. Acupuncture is a safe and effective, drug-free option to not only treat the common cold & flu but also to boost your immune system in prevention of catching these bugs.
Massaging acupressure points are also an effective preventative measure. Read the article below to learn which points to massage:
