Our blossoming trees and abundant plant life seemed to spring forth almost overnight. For many people allergies can put a damper in their enjoyment of being out and about. For some people this is cyclical, occurring in either the spring or fall, for others it’s a year round battle.
Though allergy season is in full bloom, there is no need to despair. In Chinese Medicine, an allergic reaction to airborne pollens and mold is considered to be due to an attack of “wind.” This is very much like when we catch a cold – the signs and symptoms can be quite similar. Due to our immune system being weakened, and perhaps coupled with a stiff neck and shoulders, we become vulnerable to a myriad of allergens.
Allergy shots and medication do provide symptomatic relief but do little to produce a resilient immune system.
How does this health paradigm work? The use of very fine Japanese needles, PAINLESSLY inserted, frees the blockages that cause stagnation.
