Back to Health Center Provides Summer Allergy Relief with Acupuncture

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Many allergy sufferers turn to acupuncture treatments to manage summer and seasonal allergy symptoms, reports Back to Health Center. Patients at Back to Health Center benefit from holistic acupuncture treatments that can decrease the frequency and severity of allergy symptoms and activate their body’s natural responses to combat summer allergies. Research demonstrates a link between allergy relief and acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide range of ailments and improve patient outcomes without prescription medication or invasive surgery.

Acupuncture has been used for over 4,000 years as part of the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM. Targeted acupuncture treatments can be used to address hypersensitivity within the respiratory and immune systems. Acupuncture as part of a multi-disciplinary approach can offer gentle and effective relief for many experiencing summer and seasonal allergies. Patients can reduce their reaction to commonplace airborne allergens, including pollen, smog and mold. An acupuncturist gives allergy patients a thorough evaluation involving an interview that reviews their medical history for a deeper understanding of the patient’s needs. Patients lie comfortably on the examination table and the acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles into specific points of the body. Needling has been shown to release biochemical signals that direct healing, rebalance the body and provide pain relief. Individuals can experience relief after the first visit with a decrease in watery, itchy eyes, congestion and other allergy symptoms. Additional visits may be required to manage allergy symptoms.

“Acupuncture treatments can create a considerable difference to patients suffering from summer allergies,” said Dr. Shara Posner. “As an experienced chiropractor at our practice, I have seen the difference in many allergy patients that choose to incorporate acupuncture into their treatment program to reduce allergy flare-ups and improve immune and respiratory system response. Acupuncture can provide relief for some in a single visit and helps reduce patient response to known allergy triggers. Allergy relief from our Alexandria acupuncturist is possible for many allergy sufferers.”
