Acupuncture for Allergies

Bees Pollinating Sunflower

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).


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…

Offering Pediatric Massage and Acupuncture

Pediatric Massage

Pediatric Massage

We treat children of all ages: from infants to toddlers and school aged children. When a small child or infant comes in we use pediatric tui-na and shonishin techniques to address any concerns for the little one. Children are especially receptive to bodywork so usually acupuncture is not indicated. Instead we use massage and shonishin, which is Japanese Pediatric Acupuncture. It involves tapping on specific acupressure points and massaging the extremities. Sometimes even moxa is used, which is compressed mugwort that is lit in a device and applied over the skin. This is a very gentle warming and soothing therapy that can help with boosting the immune system, alleviating pain, reducing anxiety, promoting sleep, and improving digestion. We also carry a line of herbs specific for infants and children called Gentle Warriors from Kan Herb Company and even carry some formulas from The Herbalist that are made especially for children.
