Common cold due to wind cold
If a person experiences chills, fever, headache, nasal blockage, pain in the joints, cough and itching of the throat, and white tongue coating, he or she might be having a common cold due to wind cold.
The treatment will be focused on eliminating pathogenic wind and cold from the head and facial region. Sometimes acupuncture will need to cause sweating to ease exterior symptoms like headache and nasal congestion.
Common cold due to wind heat
If a person has fever, thirst, dry congested throat, yellow tongue coating and has aversion to wind, his or her cold might be due to wind heat.
The main strategy of the treatment will be to use reducing methods of needling to eliminate wind and heat. Some bloodletting might be used as well ( a drop or two), as it helps to get rid of heat in the body.
This is a small place of healing for a great NY, where we provide acupuncture, Chinese herbs, medical massage, physical therapy and Reiki therapy services.
Thank you for stepping by and may you always be healthy.
