We treat many patients who suffer from allergies, especially seasonal allergies. Come spring, when plants start blooming, the calls start coming in. “My allergies are driving me crazy! Can acupuncture help?” The answer is YES. Acupuncture eases allergies, reduces symptoms, helps decrease medication, and allows you to spend time outdoors again.
Allergy Treatment – How It Work
Allergies are your body’s reaction to pollen and other “allergens” in the air. Our bodies treat pollen, dust and mold as invaders, and they attempt to protect us by releasing histamines. The histamine response includes all of the common allergy symptoms – runny nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, etc. The trouble is, the allergens pose no threat to our health and there is no danger. But our bodies don’t realize this. It’s a false alarm that results in annoying and sometimes debilitating symptoms.
Acupuncture strengthens your ability to have a healthy, normalize response to allergens like pollens, molds and dust. By strengthen what we call the spleen, kidney and lung function of a person (depending on their particular needs) we can help their body react normally to harmless allergens. This allows us to avoid the histamine response.
Your allergy treatment will be specific for you, focused on strengthening the weak links in your system. We also have Chinese herbs that help fight the allergic response, without the negative side effects of “over the counter” Western allergy medicines.
How To Prevent Allergies
The first thing you should do is come in for an allergy treatment. Acupuncture eases allergies best. We will conduct a full intake to identify the areas in your health that need attention. Our treatments focus on strengthening your body to resist allergens. We’ll also send you home with great Chinese herbs to help manage flares.

What our Clients are Saying
My allergies got very bad ever since I moved to Raleigh. I don’t like how the medicines make me feel. So I tried acupuncture. The effect was excellent. My allergies got 90% better. I also like the Chinese pills. I take them with me when I travel. They’re not kidding about relaxing treatments. I fall asleep every time I got a session.
My wife made me try acupuncture because she was sick and tired of me complaining about my allergies every summer. Pine pollen made my nose run like a faucet. The pills from the doctor didn’t work so I figured it was worth a try. What a difference the acupuncture made. If you are allergic to pine pollen you’ve got to try this stuff. My staff at Raleigh Acupuncture even put up with my sense of humor. You can’t beat that.
Acupuncture really helped my seasonal allergies. I’m grateful to Raleigh Acupuncture for helping me. Every year from spring through the fall I had terrible allergies. Now after their treatment I hardly have them at all. Thank you!
