Immune Boost at PureBalance

Your immune system is a collective of cells, tissues and organs working together to fight off infections. Your body relies on factors such as nutrition, exercise, rest and good posture to maintain optimal health.

At PureBalance, we offer three services which provide a natural path to a healthier you.

1) Get Adjusted!

The systems in your body are coordinated and controlled by the nervous system. The nervous system runs through the spine and interacts with the immune system, learning how to adapt and protect your body. A spinal misalignment may cause neural dysfunctions, which in turn weakens your immune system. Lessen the stress on your body. Feel the benefits of an immune boost. Get an adjustment!

2) Get Acupuncture!

Acupuncture is a tried and true medical practice. At PureBalance we use acupuncture to reconfigure the energies in your body and balance your Chi. Acupuncture charges your body, giving you more strength to fight off viruses. Leave feeling energized, relaxed and recharged. Stay healthy. Get Acupuncture!

3) Get into the Far Infrared Sauna!

Spending regular time in a far infrared sauna can also help to boost your immune system. The far infrared sauna will raise the core body temperature, removing toxins and helping to keep the immune system strong and in good working order. Check out our sauna special and schedule your sauna sessions today!

Call PureBalance at 224-521-1212 and get started on the path to naturally boosting your immune system!

Cheers to a healthier you!
