A number of symptoms can occur with chills, including muscle ache, headache, shivering, sweating, sore throat, aching joints and feebleness. The causes of chills will vary, so a complete health history will help determine the cause. For example, cold temperatures will cause shivering and chills, and certain pathogens will bring about sore throat, fever, sweating and chills. Low energy will often bring about feebleness and chills.
Depending on the cause of chills, acupuncture will treat the patient to restore the body’s health. In the case of pathogens, acupuncture applied to specific points will strengthen the immune system, helping it eliminate the foreign agents. When chills result from low energy, dietary and movement recommendations and three to four acupuncture treatments that target specific meridians will help restore the body’s natural energy systems.
