In the world of acupuncture there are at least 400 points, depending on who you talk to, out of the 400 there are about 150 commonly used points. Thats because some points have multiple affects over the body and therefore can be more effective during treatment.

Tip: Washing your hands under warm water multiple times a day can stimulate points that can reduce sore throat, cold and flu symptoms.
A sore throat isn't a common complaint people go see an acupuncturist for, but it sometimes happens to tag along with a patients main complaint especially during the fall or winter months. A sore throat can be annoying, irritating, itchy and just uncomfortable. In chinese medicine a sore throat is usually seen as a form of heat or a pathogenic factor trying to invade the body and with out treatment it could go deeper turning into a cold or a flu.
