It’s that time of year where the snow melts and things start to turn green outside. Most people are thankful for the weather changes and sunshine, but for some this time of year turns into allergy season. Hay fever, seasonal allergies, sinus infections, and sinus congestion are very common due to the pollen in the air from trees, grass, and flowers.

Do You Develop Any of These Symptoms Around This Time of Year?

  • Pain in sinuses/Sinus headache
  • Runny nose/Nasal congestion
  • Itchy, watery, red eyes
  • itchy nose or throat
  • Sneezing/Cough

Acupuncture Can Help!

Acupuncture helps reduce inflammation & pain in the sinuses. It also helps with the movement of fluids in the body, which drains sinus congestion experienced during this time of year. Immediate effects are often noticed, which helps reduce congestion and relieves pain throughout the treatment. 

What Will the Treatment Look Like?

Local & distal points will be used during the treatment to help provide a whole body treatment, for overall body wellness.  

Local: a few points in the face will be used to help decrease sinus inflammation and promote sinuses drainage. 

Distal: utilizing points in the arms / legs will help boost the bodies immune system and overall body wellness.
