Acupuncture and Seasonal Allergies: There's No Need To Suffer

May 9, 2018

 

This month's special is a seasonal allergy treatment for $55.

 

So many people suffer from spring allergies, and in many cases unnecessarily. Symptoms of nasal congestion, headache, itchy eyes and tight chest are easily helped with acupuncture. Acute symptoms are usually reduced after one treatment. During allergy season, people come when symptomatic. For more long-term relief, scheduling a series of treatments before the season starts can help reduce the severity of allergic response. 

 

Chinese 'patent' herbs can provide relief, as well, 'Patents' are ancient formulas, tested over centuries. They come in pill or tablet form and are sort of like our over-the-counter medicines. Unlike OTC and prescription drugs, Chinese patents don't have annoying side effects such as drying mucous membranes, drowsiness, or reduced mental alertness. They are inexpensive (between $8 and $20 for a week to ten day supply), safe and easy to keep handy. If poor sleep accompanies your symptoms, consider using a patent sleep remedy along with your allergy pills. 

 

If you suffer through the season stuffy and head-achy, come on in for an acupuncture allergy treatment, $55 thorough May. Or you can opt for a half-hour facial massage ($45) to relieve discomfort. For less than $20 you can purchase allergy relief herbs to get you through.

 

With all these safe and inexpensive options, we've got you covered. You, too, can enjoy our lovely New England Spring!
