How Acupuncture Provides Relief from Seasonal Allergies

What is Acupuncture ?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice in which hair-thin needles are inserted into the body at specific points believed to be connected to each other by a network of energy lines called meridians. The meridians serve as a pathway along which qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital life energy, flows. According to TCM, each meridian is associated with a different system in the body. Therefore the placement of needles is based on targeting the organs associated with the condition being treated.

Treating Allergies with Acupuncture

An allergy is an excessive reaction by the immune system to a substance that is normally harmless. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine work by rebalancing the body’s systems, regulating the body’s healing energies and enhancing the immune system. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are safe, natural and effective ways to support the body’s innate healing systems.

When acupuncture is used for allergies, several meridians located on the front of the body may be targeted, including the lungs, colon, stomach, and spleen. These meridians are believed to circulate defensive qi, a type of energy linked to immunity. A backup or a deficiency of defensive qi cause typical allergy symptoms such as swelling, watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, allergic eczema, and conjunctivitis.The idea is that stimulating these points will restore defensive qi and relieve symptoms.
