Symptoms of running nose, sneezing, and watery itchy eyes that recur during specific parts of the year (especially Spring and Fall) are a cause of much suffering of a large segment of the U.S. population. Millions of dollars are spent on medications and the allergy shots for the treatment of seasonal allergies.
Western medicine views seasonal allergies as a form of immediate hypersensitivity reaction which occurs when anti-bodies produced by lymphocytes interact with airborne particles such as pollen. Western medicine describes the locations of lymphocytes in addition to being in the blood stream as also in the gastrointestinal tract, spleen, lymph nodes, and bone marrow. Our acupuncture techniques target the the pressure points in your body that target these ares.
Often, our patients get some relief during their first visit while lying on the exam table with their acupuncture needles in place. After an initial series of treatments, patients come in for further treatments on an as needed basis. Some patients come back in once or twice a year for a booster while others may come more often.
We see many patients who failed medication and allergy shots respond to acupuncture. Patients can continue with whatever standard treatments they are currently undergoing while getting acupuncture treatments. Most patients end up significantly reducing or eliminating their dependence on allergy medications.
Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques to stimulate a plethora of anatomical locations. As a traditional acupuncturist, we incorporate a variety of applications from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries. We use gentle stimulation of acupuncture points by penetrating the skin with almost hair-thin, solid, metallic needles.
