Finding Harmony During the Holidays: Acupuncture and Herbal Remedies in Beaverton

The holiday season brings festive cheer, family gatherings, and, unfortunately, a spike in stress, illness, and digestive woes. While Western medicine has its place, many Oregonians are turning to Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM) for a holistic approach to holiday wellness. In Beaverton, Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, helps patients navigate the holiday season with gentle yet effective TAM practices.

Acupuncture: Balancing the Body’s Energy Flow

Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TAM, involves inserting hair-thin needles at specific points on the body to stimulate Qi, the body’s vital energy. This gentle practice helps:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety: Holiday hustle and bustle can leave us frazzled. Acupuncture’s calming effect can ease tension headachesmuscle aches, and racing minds, allowing you to savor the season’s joy.
  • Boost immunity: The cold and flu season often coincides with holiday gatherings. Acupuncture can strengthen your immune system, making you less susceptible to seasonal bugs.
  • Improve sleep: Holiday travel and late-night festivities can disrupt sleep patterns. Acupuncture’s harmonizing effect promotes restful sleep, leaving you energized for holiday adventures.
