Acupuncture for Allergies

Do you suffer from allegies? We've got you covered!

Seasonal allergies affect one third of all Americans. Over-the counter medicines have side effects such as drowsiness, and daily nose sprays that contain steroids can damage the body’s natural healing abilities. Acupuncture can relieve allergy symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, cough, shortness of breath, wheezing and headaches, while also boosting the immune system. This helps the body find a natural rhythm to address the root cause of the allergies.

ACUPUNCTURE & TCM CAN HELP 

Acupuncture is effective at treating both chronic and acute allergies, including reactions to environmental allergens and food. Symptoms of food allergies that acupuncture can relieve include fatigue, hives, eczema, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, nasal congestion, cough, and asthma.

In a recent study, allergy patients received more symptom relief with acupuncture than with traditional Western medical treatments. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine can be used to give relief from symptoms between acupuncture treatments by helping to boost the immune system. Allergy symptoms respond quickly to acupuncture treatment - often patients experience some relief during their first visit while still lying on the table with needles in place!

ACUPUNCTURE IN A NUTSHELL 

Acupuncture, the most well-known traditional Chinese medical procedure, is the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture triggers spontaneous healing reactions in the body, and scientific studies have proven its efficacy for treating inflammation, pain, depression and a host of other disorders.

ACUPUNCTURE CAN ALSO HELP WITH:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Nausea
