• Allergy treatments

  • Inflammation of the nasal mucosa and sinuses (often called allergic rhinitis) is interpreted in TCM as an imbalance in Qi distribution. Symptoms can be alleviated by re-balancing the Qi using acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

    Allergy treatment with TCM can significantly attenuate allergic reactions and in some cases help the sufferer tolerate the causal element - pollen for example. When a client is treated for an allergy condition we also look more deeply, pursuant to our philosophy of treating the whole person. According to TCM, chronic allergy sufferers often have spleen or kidney deficiencies and possibly lung problems. The practitioner will develop a treatment plan to alleviate the immediate symptoms while addressing any underlying systemic imbalance which may be at the root of the issue. 

    TCM provides an alternative that doesn't require taking pharmaceuticals. There are excellent Chinese herbal formulas that will treat allergy symptoms and support the immune system. If you suffer from allergies, you should definitely consider Traditional Chinese Medicine.
