Acupuncture and Allergies

Will Acupuncture help my allergies?

It’s Spring Allergy Season

Did you know that we inherit 70% of our allergies from a parent or grandparent? Regardless of this fact, it is spring allergy season (which is 2 weeks late this year). Now is the time to start the over the counter antihistamine (i.e. Claritin) to prevent the onset of spring allergy sinus congestion, tearing eyes, congested cough, headaches and post nasal drip.

If you want to boost your immune symptom or treat one of the above reactions you can get some acupuncture. I treat points on the face with laser acupuncture which are the same ones I use to treat wrinkles. You get two treatments for the price of one. Have a great day!
