Allergies

Allergy Season is in full swing for many of us. We're seeing an uptick in patients requesting allergy support, so now is a good time to review the benefits of Acupuncture for Allergies.
 
Acupuncture is a safe, non-pharmaceutical intervention that has a very long, proven track record for relieving allergy symptoms.
 
Acupuncture does this by helping increase the number of messenger hormones sent to the immune system which calms the immune response to allergens for long-term allergy relief. The more frequent the treatment, the quicker and longer-lasting the relief.
 
"Large controlled research studies show that regular acupuncture treatment decreases antihistamine use and improves quality of life for those suffering from nasal congestion and sinus pain due to seasonal allergies." --Brinkhaus, Annals of Internal Medicine, 2013
 
If you or someone you know is suffering from allergies, call us now for an appointment and get back to enjoying the warmer weather!
