Acupuncture for Allergies

Allergy treatment is one of our deepest areas of expertise. Our allergy patients typically find relief from their worst symptoms in just several treatments.

In our experience, acupuncture is especially effective in relieving the following symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Rash, Itchiness
  • Congestion
  • Confusion and Dizziness

Whether your allergies are caused by pollen, insects, mites, chemicals, foods, or medications, the underlying cause of your body's allergic response is the same. This is why acupuncture, which has been proven to have beneficial effects for the immune system, can help you overcome even the most severe allergies.


Amazing does not begin to describe my experience with Dr. Chen. I have had allergies all my life with my worst symptoms being sneezing, sinus congestion, and runny nose. I have tried all the standard treatments which were either not effective or caused too many side effects. I found Acupuncture for Natural Healing through citysearch like many other people. I was told that I should see immediate relief after just the first treatment but long term effects may take some more treatments. After the first session, which lasted about 45 minutes, my nose began to run uncontrollably. This lasted for TWO ENTIRE DAYS. Never in my life had my nose run so much... I had to grab a tissue literally every minute for two entire days. After those two days, my allergies COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. This was the best thing that could have happened for me and my Allergies and I cannot be more thankful to these wonderful healers. I will spread the word about acupuncture and its amazing effects everywhere I go, for the rest of my life!
