Hayfever is seen in Chinese Medicine terms as a sign of an energetic imbalance. There is an over-reaction of your immune system to the pollen or grass and tree spores naturally occurring in the atmosphere from the gardens, fields and countryside around us in summer. And just when you want to get outside to enjoy the warm weather this over-reaction can lead to some very uncomfortable symptoms such as itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, headaches, blocked or runny nose and disturbed sleep which can make your summer a misery.
Acupuncture can be very effective at relieving these symptoms, especially if you start your treatments a few months before the hayfever season. By gently stimulating acupuncture points we can restore the flow of energy and make your immune system stronger so you no longer need to suffer from hayfever symptoms.
