Yes, in that it can improve your immune system by balancing your body systems.
Acupuncture boosts immune system, which is great to prevent viruses.
Hi, acupuncture supports the immune system, so with that in mind, it does not prevent viruses, but it helps to boost your immune system to fight off the invasion of a virus.
Acupuncture can help support and boost your immune system which in turn keeps you healthier and stronger.

In acupuncture, there are points to increase our immunity by strengthening the Qi (energy). If you really want to prevent viruses, here are some videos I share online. There are Eastern functional exercises to enhance your T cells. Please check it out. There are a lot of videos in my channel to boost up immunity:

Yes, in the sense that it strengthens your immune system by improving circulation, absorption of minerals and nutrients, and organ function. I hope this helps!
Acupuncture helps strengthen your immune system. A strong immune system is more likely to keep you healthy and fight back strongly if you get sick. Acupuncture also helps strengthen your body in general. You will be fitter and stronger for any pathogens.

No, but it can boost your immune system to prevent you from getting sick
Thank you for such an appropriate question during these difficult times. No. Acupuncture cannot prevent you from contracting a virus if you are unfortunately exposed. But, acupuncture can strengthen your immunity by prescribing immune enhancing formulas, acupuncture and eating foods that will help your immunity rather than injure your health. It is important to be aware that healing starts from the inside first. Also, wear your mask, social distance, and wash your hands.

Acupuncture is often used to strengthen your immune system and prevent allergies and colds. With virulent cases, usually it is too late to prevent and acupuncture is then used to expedite the condition and progress the disease to help the patient get over it faster. Each condition is different and may have a different method of treatment for the best prognosis. Some may need alternative methods of treatment like fire cupping or even herbal supplementation. In any case, it is best to check with your primary care physician and to see if acupuncture and Chinese medicine would be a good alternative treatment for you.

Acupuncture does not have directly an antiviral effect. However, acupuncture has a calming effect on the immune system that can create a more balanced neurotransmitters and hormones. This effect may help reduce the inflammatory markers and allow the body to cope better with any stressors.
Yes it can. Acupuncture together with herbs can help to improve your immune system to prevent getting sick with the virus after exposure and or shorten the time of illness. And if you are sick from a virus the acupuncture with herbs can help your immune system fight the virus and lessen the symptoms and recover quicker.
I would not claim that it can prevent viruses.  No,  certainly not.  What it can do is enhance a person's immune system.  We all need to be working on having an optimal immune system at all times and especially now.  That way we may be able to prevent illnesses or at least  have symptoms that may be fewer and less intense if we do become ill.

Acupuncture treatments can boost your immune system and it helps fighting with virus.
Thank you.
It can help strengthen your immune system, improve your rest, relieve some stress, and thus since all those things boost your immune system, indirectly it helps... but no, viruses enter the body the same way with or without acupuncture. Only universal precautions can prevent viral spread to the best of my knowledge. There is an herb i use in my practice that works very well for acute viral infections though.
It can help with boosting your immune system, so you will have a lower chance of catching the virus.
Herbal formula and acupuncture can help you to prevent flu symptoms but you need to consult with your family doctor and professional licensed acupuncture for right diagnosis.
You need to see your family doctor first and ask him (her) to refer you to see the professional licensed acupuncture.
Acupuncture helps to balance and strengthen the immune system along with healthy practices such as drinking lemon water, keeping up on your vitamin C, and adding coconut oil to your daily diet it can be very helpful at preventing viruses.
The best way to prevent an infection is to make sure your Qi is strong.
Acupuncture treatment helps improve immune system
Acupuncture is a wellness medicine. Getting a monthly checkup (or at least quarterly) will help you stay healthy. A good acupuncturist can tell if you are coming down with something and boost your immune system. Acupuncture also reduces stress, a major cause of illness. Diet and lifestyle are also important factors in preventing all kinds of illnesses.
It can boost your immune system!
Yes, acupuncture can strengthen the immune system and help fight off viruses as well as reduce the duration of illnesses if they are caught.
That depends on the virus and how it's been contracted. Something like a cold or flu can be easily prevented with regular acupuncture treatments. A virus like herpes, however, cannot be prevented but acupuncture can help treat the symptoms.
Yes, acupuncture can help you body immune system get stronger then can help you prevent viruses more.
Acupuncture regulates your immune system to prevent and fight any bad microbes
No, acupuncture can not help prevent viruses.
Acupuncture and moxibustion may help to boost the immune system in general. Usually for folks looking to prevent illnesses like cold or flu I recommend vitamin supplementation and hand washing.
