Now that spring is here, most people can’t wait to go outside. But allergy sufferers would rather stay indoors than face the multiple allergens and pollens in the air. However, acupuncture can provide effective relief from the usual allergy symptoms you face. Here’s some more information on how you can find relief during the spring and summer months.

Acupuncture is a natural form of allergy treatment

Unlike most allergy medications, you won’t experience the common side effects of drowsiness or fatigue after having an acupuncture treatment. If anything, you may feel more energy as a result of your acupuncture treatments. One of the main goals of acupuncture is to tap into the body’s source of qi, or energy, by focusing on the meridians that promote a greater energy flow. As a result, you’ll be better equipped to enjoy the beautiful spring weather without the hassle of allergies.

Acupuncture is a proactive approach to allergy relief

Acupuncture can prevent the onset of allergy symptoms whereas allergy medications often mask allergy symptoms. Because of that factor, it’s best to plan your treatments before allergy season hits its peak.

You may find relief within your early treatment sessions

Depending on the severity of your allergies, when you come in for an acupuncture treatment, you may start to feel instant relief during your first visit! This is great news for allergy sufferers who often find themselves dependent on allergy medications. For those people who suffer from severe allergies, they know that one day without allergy medication can be an unpleasant experience. Acupuncture sessions can help you to decrease your dependency on allergy medications. After their first few treatments, you can receive treatments as they are needed.

Acupuncture helps to restore balance

When you suffer from allergies, everything seems off balance.  The shift in weather temperatures leads to an increased exposure to the pollens in the air. These changes can be detrimental to your immune functioning, your sleep patterns, and your overall well-being. According to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, allergies are interpreted as a sign of “bi yuan,” otherwise known as an imbalance of qi or energy.  Acupuncture can give your body the tune up it needs to restore the balance of qi by placing an intensive focus on the meridians that are in line with your allergy symptoms. The main points of interest are in the liver and the lungs. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, these are the parts of the body which are most affected by allergies.

Don’t keep yourself stuck indoors this spring! Enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and beautiful flowers without the nuisance of allergies. You’ll feel in a better position to enjoy the spring weather the way you want. After all, the winter has probably put you through enough unwanted stress. It’s time to start enjoying the nice weather outdoors and breathing the fresh air!  If you’d like to learn more and start feeling the relief you deserve, contact me for a complimentary 15-minute consultation session!
