Acupuncture for Allergies!

  • Did you know acupuncture relieves allergy symptoms like stuffiness, headache, itchy eyes, and runny nose?
  • Acupuncture reduces inflammation and irritation by strategically placing itty-bitty needles the size of a human hair on your skin.  Dr. Board is so good; I cannot even tell when it is being done!
    • Opens up your sinuses – improves circulation to congested areas
    • Boosts your immunity – increases white blood cell count
    • Stops coughing – traditional Chinese Medicine views coughing as “qi” flowing in the wrong direction and acupuncture redirects the “qi” downward thus stopping the cough
    • Stops headaches – increases blood circulation and relaxes muscles
    • Addresses ROOT causes vs. masking with medication which may cause dryness and drowsiness

Works best against allergies when done as soon as possible.  Prevention and relief in as little as 3 sessions, so book your appointments now!  Call us at

  • RESEARCH: In a study published by the Annals of Internal Medicine, the researchers foundpatients who received acupuncture had “statistically significant” improvements in their reportedquality of life and in reducing the amount of allergy medicine they took, compared with the othertwo groups (placebo acupuncture for one and just medicine for the other).- The Effects of Acupuncture on Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis: Annals of Internal Medicine.
  • TIP – also eating a tablespoon of locally produced honey everyday can help relieve symptoms.
