My secrets for treating allergies

This month we are diving into allergies.

Oh, allergies, I love the flowers and the season change, but some of us pay a horrible price.

Since I practice a form of acupuncture called the Balance Method, I am uniquely positioned to encourage the body’s healing mechanisms long before an allergen shows up. 

This requires us practitioners to really brush up on our Five Element and the Bagua theory to get these treatments right. While this may look complex (and it is), it’s basically about finding balance through the opposites and accepting change.

                                                             Five Elements  and  the Bagua

What I need YOU to confirm is that you’ve had your seasonal allergy for two or more seasons, recurring at the same time each year. So, if allergies are new to you, and you’re not sure you’ve really got allergies, or if it’s just sensitivities or a cold, I have to wait more than a year to know for sure. 

Once you know you’ve got recurring seasonal allergies, I start treatment in the opposite season. For example, if you suffer prominently in the spring (wood season), I start treatment in the fall (metal season). I choose powerful commanding points on your body based on the season, the Bagua and your specific complaints. 

Sure, I can still treat allergy upheaval when it’s in full blow, but it’s more like damage control than healing. Still, it’s some pretty potent damage control. I’ve had multiple patients show up with itchy red eyes, swollen sinuses, runny noses, and headaches that wouldn’t yield to any medication. That’s when I love to use those super special points at the bridge of your nose, between your eyebrows, and a few other spots on your face. They report waking up with less congestion, getting fewer headaches, and not having to rely so heavily on OTC medication to get through their days.

For all you seasonal allergy sufferers, I’ve got you covered all year long. Now that you know our little secret of treating allergies in the off season, I strongly suggest you continue to keep this a big secret! Imagine if word got out and you couldn’t get in to see us.

Fear not, friend, you are a VIP. All it takes is a quick email and you’re in!
