Allergy: It is not uncommon for each of us to suffer from some type of allergy. Fortunately for most of us it is only an inconvenience but for 1/3 of the people it can cause serious symptoms and resulting problems. Allergies are an overreaction of our immune system to immunogenic substances such as pollens or insect dust.

During spring, summer and fall, with its abundance of flowers, varied plant life and generally mild climate, southern Ontario is particularly prone to allergy related health issues. Acupuncture and herbs bring a natural approach to helping out clients with recurrent sneezing, congestion, watery eyes and other discomforts. The purpose of our treatment is to lessen the symptoms and reduce the frequency of recurrence.

During a treatment session, we will use several approaches including:

· Acupuncture & Electro-Acupuncture

· Auricular Acupuncture & Acupressure

· Cupping Therapy

· Chinese Herbs

Our goal is to balance the immune system to help the body heal itself more efficiently.While the results vary from person to person, many patients notice immediate relief from common allergy symptoms. Many report a significant decrease and less dependent on most forms of medication.

For optimal results, we recommend initiating acupuncture treatment before or early in the allergy season.
