Not only does acupuncture feel good but it can help with your allergies as well. Allergies are a systemic or whole-body reaction to allergens with common ones being: ragweed, mold, pollen, and dust. One view of how acupuncture helps allergies is that acupuncture helps to strengthen your immune system when you receive treatment. Some common symptoms of season allergies may be:
Itchy eyes and nose
Dark circles under the eyes
A healthy immune system from acupuncture and herbal medicine can provide adequate support in dealing with aggressive bouts of seasonal allergies.
In this Australian study; Four weeks of acupuncture treatment is a safe and effective option for clinical management of Seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR) for patients' symptom relief. (Xue et al., 2015)
