How can acupuncture help as a hay fever treatment?

Acupuncture is best used in the prevention of hay fever symptoms. The aim of treatment is to
balance and boost the body’s immune system and therefore strengthen the body’s ability to fight off the allergen. Acupuncture can help ensure the body is in the best possible health with treatment starting before the season begins and identifying specific weaknesses within each individual person that could cause this reaction.

Can acupuncture help during hay fever season?

Acupuncture treatment during hay fever season focuses on specific points around the body to reduce the histamine immune response and inflammation that follows. Points are used on the face to stimulate nerves and help clear blocked sinuses and general irritation. The aim of treatment during the season where symptoms are present is to strengthen the body’s defences so that it is no longer threatened by the external allergen. Acupuncture can achieve fairly fast and lasting results.
