For seasonal allergy sufferers, spring and fall can be particularly trying. And for those allergic to mold and dust, winter offers no reprieve. Whether it's pollen, mold, mildew, or a combination of allergens, allergy season often means relying on over-the-counter remedies to help with stuffy, runny noses, itchy, watery eyes, and other common allergy symptoms. However, Green Street Massage offers acupuncture and other alternatives that can ease allergy symptoms in a more natural way.
Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medical practice, centers around the idea that stimulating points outside of the body prompts changes or initiates reactions on the inside. Ultimately, it is believed that acupuncture affects the immune system, the point at which the allergic reactions begin. While the practice works well for one type of allergy, such as pollen, studies have also shown it to be beneficial for individuals suffering from multiple allergies.
In fact, acupuncture is quite helpful for anyone suffering from multiple allergies, as it works to calm down the parts of the immune system that are overstimulated or overreacting following exposure to several allergens and irritants. For all allergy sufferers, combining traditional treatments, including antihistamines and other medications, with natural alternatives, such as acupuncture, could be just the right combination for relief during the worst parts of allergy season.
From allergies to digestive problems and sleep issues, Green Street Massage provides relief from uncomfortable, yet common, health ailments. In addition to acupuncture, other potential solutions include massage therapy or a hot stone massage.
