ALLERGIES & SINUSITIS    Allergies (rhinitis, hay fever) manifest as frequent, sudden attacks of sneezing, stuffy nose, itching of the roof of the mouth and sometimes red, watery, itchy eyes.  Chinese medicine recognizes these acute symptoms as a reaction to an external allergen (pollen, pollution, animals, etc.) and so acupuncture seeks to strengthen the body's internal defenses.   Sinusitis is usually a chronic issue.  It may include nasal discharge from the front and back of the nose (into throat), stuffy nose, frontal headache, facial pain, feeling of heaviness the head and sinuses tender to the touch.  Acupuncture and herbs help to eliminate the phlegm and strengthen the body's digestive and respiratory functions in order to combat this stubborn condition.

The causes of fatigue can be from a variety of sources. Stress and overwork, chronic conditions, poor diet, severe illness and childbirth to name a few. An acupuncturist aims to treat the source of the fatigue, not merely the symptoms of it.

However, when this condition continues it becomes insomnia and it can be hugely debilitating, leading to tiredness, inability to concentrate, and mood changes.

STRESS   With our busy lives, stress now seems an inevitable part of daily life. Whether it is work, personal relationships or even hectic social schedules, there is often very little time to truly relax. Tension across the shoulders, headaches, short temperedness, insomnia, tiredness, aches and pains, or digestive disorders are all made worse when the body is stressed. The ability to relax the body is one of acupuncture’s best attributes. Acupuncture leaves the majority of patients feel “chilled out”, “serene”, “spaced out” or simply very relaxed. For this reason many patients continue to come for acupuncture long after their original complaint has gone.
