Fix Your Allergy Symptoms with Acupuncture!
Tis the season of allergies and sinusitis, as the trees begin to bloom with the essence of spring. As different types of pollen, grass, hay, and dogwood spores float through the air, we find ourselves congested, sneezing, with post nasal drip and runny, itchy eyes. While you can take over the counter medications for this issue, there is another solution–Acupuncture!
Acupuncture almost immediately helps to open the sinus passages and clear the congestion. When people get acupuncture for their allergy symptoms, they love to get the facial acupuncture points because it does two jobs in one:
- Gives the person an uplifting facial to help rejuvenate and reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- clears the sinuses and airway
Many people wonder if acupuncture hurts because needles certainly sound like they would hurt, and in the face? You barely feel it. These needles are so thin, and are meant to be inserted in these invisible holes on the nervous system. Most people find that they are completely relaxed during a treatment and do not feel anything once the acupuncture needles are inserted. This is because while acupuncture may be used to clear the mucous out of the airway, it is also releasing endorphins in the brain to promote relaxation, while balancing the hormones, while relieving pain. Acupuncture can do so many things at once that it is a real bargain because you can come in with a laundry list of issues you would like treated and get them all treated in one session.
For sinusitis and allergy symptoms we also use Chinese Herbs which are hugely effective to take during allergy season. They are so effective, that we sometimes run out of them because patients love them! Don’t let allergies get you down this season, get Acupuncture!
