Portland Acupuncture for Allergies

Customized Acupuncture Treatment Programs That Provide Allergy Relief

Allergies to pollen, mold, dust and other contaminants are a common complaint in the Pacific Northwest. If you are looking for a better way to both relieve allergy symptoms and treat the underlying cause, acupuncture may be right for you. A growing body of evidence suggests that acupuncture can reduce inflammation and histamine response – the body’s reaction to many allergy triggers. In some cases, acupuncture may be even more effective than antihistamine medications.

At Inner Works Acupuncture, we treat the root cause of allergies, not just the symptoms. Along with acupuncture, every treatment program includes nutritional, herbal, and wellness consultation so that you can manage your allergies in the best possible way. Our clinical experience shows that, with regular acupuncture treatment, allergies often improve year by year.

Proper wellness habits and acupuncture treatment can significantly reduce seasonal allergies, eliminating the need for pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter (OTC) medications, which can cause dependence and unpleasant side effects. With a customized acupuncture treatment plan, you can achieve allergy relief in a natural and holistic way.

Acupuncture for Allergies in Portland

The goal of acupuncture is to clear energy blockages and to stimulate the body to release natural chemicals that relieve irritation and reduce inflammation. Five Element acupuncture treatment plans are personalized to address a client’s unique needs. For those who suffer from allergies, the optimal time to begin an acupuncture treatment program is several months before the arrival of allergy season. Although acupuncture sessions during allergy seasons can reduce symptoms, starting an acupuncture program before the season starts will help to prevent symptoms from developing while balancing the immune response. Most clients find that the combination of regular acupuncture sessions and disciplined wellness habits lead to a reduction in allergies over time.
