Acupuncture for Allergies: The Natural Solution You’ve Been Searching For
If you suffer from seasonal allergies or eczema, you know how frustrating it can be to rely on medication to alleviate your symptoms. But what if there was a natural solution that could help you find relief without relying on medicine? Look no further than acupuncture.
At Midland Sports Rehab, acupuncturist Courtney specializes in targeting relief from allergies and other conditions. Here’s what you need to know about acupuncture and how it can help you find relief from your allergies.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that uses hair-thin needles to target specific medical conditions. This practice is based on the belief that acupuncture points are connected by energy lines called meridians, which act as pathways for the body’s energy to flow. When these energy lines are disrupted, a variety of symptoms can occur. Acupuncture aims to reestablish communication between organs and the nervous system to restore the flow of energy and alleviate symptoms.
During an acupuncture session, a trained practitioner gently administers needles under the skin in specific placements on the body. These placements are well-studied areas that target the organs associated with the condition being treated.
Acupuncture for Allergies: What the Research Says
Research studies have shown that acupuncture can be an effective natural treatment for allergies. In a German study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, two groups of participants were studied: allergy sufferers who sought relief through acupuncture, and those that took over-the-counter antihistamines to treat their allergy symptoms. After two months, those that received acupuncture reported less need for medication to treat their allergies, as well as an overall improved quality of life over other control groups.
While results are mixed, quantifiable evidence suggests that acupuncture is a viable solution to allergy relief as a means to reduce the need to take allergy medication.
How Acupuncture Works for Allergies
Acupuncture seeks to improve immunity through circulation of the body’s energy. For allergies, treatment is focused on the front of the body, where the defensive qi is stimulated to improve immunity and lessen the onset of allergic reactions. Regular acupuncture treatments can naturally alleviate allergy symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, inflammation, puffy eyes, and eczema.
At Midland Sports Rehab, our team takes a client-centered approach to all of our treatment options. We will target specific acupuncture points based on your needs for allergy symptom relief. During your appointment, you can expect a relaxing session that will yield immediate relief. The frequency of your recommended sessions will depend on your personal needs and the severity of your allergy symptoms. While some people see prolonged relief after only one session, others require multiple sessions over 4-6 weeks to realign the body’s immune system response.
