Now that the cherry blossoms are blooming and we have all these beautiful bulbs coming up out of the ground with many amazing colors and smells… ALLERGIES!!! Not to fear, Acupuncture is here!
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have successfully been used to treat allergies for thousands of years. I myself had horrible allergies, asthma, and eczema for many years and the only successful treatment was Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, diet therapy, breathing exercises).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Acupuncture works to reduce allergies by regulating the immune system. When our immune system is overly sensitive our body will react negatively to things we are commonly exposed to: such as pollens, dust, mold, plants, animals, even food that we eat. Acupuncture combined with herbs helps to reduce the histamine response in our body that triggers the inflammatory cascade leading to extra mucus, red itchy eyes, digestive or GI upset, rashes, hives, feeling foggy headed, etc.
Acupuncture sessions are relaxing and can address other issues even when you are coming in just for allergies. Things like sleep, energy level, metabolism, mood elevation, any aches or pains, the list goes on and on…
