Preventative Lung Care Treatments
Jun 27, 2011 11:58AM
Dr. Susan Hathaway, AP, DOM, of Dong Ye Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is pleased to announce she is now offering lung treatments as preventative care.
In Chinese Medicine, there are seasons for each major organ group in the body. The lung season starts in August. If the lungs are strong when winter begins, the body is better able to withstand flu and chest colds. “People who suffer from asthma or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) receive the greatest benefit from this treatment,” says Dr. Hathaway, “however, anyone who wants to breathe easier throughout the winter should have a lung treatment.”
A topical paste of Chinese herbs is placed at selected points on the body and left on for 24 hours. The recommended dosage is four treatments in the summer months to receive maximum benefits. This procedure is safe for adults, elderly, and children and costs $25 per treatment.
