Traditional Chinese Medicine associates summer with the fire element, which relates to the enjoyment of life, sociability and passion. Like the sun, which radiates light and warmth in all directions, the life energy or Yang Qi is also radiated outwards in summer. In Summer the yang energy is predominant, which makes it important to find a good balance between cooling and warming during this time. The changes in daylight hours and the rising temperatures during these months have a great effect on the natural cycles and rhythms of our body and often result in susceptibility to various ailments.
Treatment during the summer time with acupuncture, as well as other traditional Chinese medicine treatment methods, can help boost the overall immune system and effectively relieve existing physical, mental and mental health complaints.

Respiratory diseases, including allergic sinusitis or rhinosinusitis, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma
Sub-health and immunodeficiency including permanent fatigue, exhaustion, recurrent cold
General rheumatic pains and joint problems
