Stop Colds Before They Start

It’s that time of year again! The kids are back in school and day care, and they share nothing better than germs. No matter how good we are at washing hands, those pesky bugs travel with people of all ages, and suddenly cold and flu season is upon us.

Squash the Flu

cupping is only a phone call away at Affinity Acupuncture near Nashville, TN

Having a hard time shaking off that cold/flu that’s been going around? It got passed around our family, too.  There are alternatives to toughing it out or taking drugs that give you cotton mouth and medicine head.  Cupping uses vacuum pressure to activate the lymphatic system, increase circulation, and release toxins.  Gua Sha uses a small massage tool to activate the lymphatic system, restore normal movement of fluids, and flush waste from the body.  Both techniques should be available at your local acupuncturist.  If you’re in the Nashville area, give us a call – we have appointments available. 615-939-2787
