If you live here in Austin, you probably have some sort of seasonal allergies. No matter where you hang your hat, every spring the pollen might seem like it’s tying to kill you. An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. But never fear! Acupuncture is here! According to this recent study by the Annals of Internal Medicine, hay fever sufferers who received 12 acupuncture treatments noticed a significant decrease in their symptoms and the need for antihistamines over the course of their treatments. We would love to try and help you alleviate those annoying symptoms. In addition to working with you on an in office treatment plan, we also offer 2 great herbs from our chi kids line that can help. Our B4 Vax formula helps to boost your own immune system. And our Bi Yan Pian relieves frontal sinus pressure and congestion. In between treatments, you can use a neti pot daily to help relieve your symptoms.
Traditional Chinese medicine often views allergic rhinitis as related to Wind, noting that symptoms come and go rapidly, cause congestion, and make the person want to avoid windy situations. Visit our online scheduler to start your treatment plan today!
