More than 50 Million Americans suffer from allergies each year and that number has only increased over time. Allergies are also the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in Americans.

An allergy develops when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, resulting in symptoms such as headaches, sinusitis, sneezing, red itchy eyes, runny nose, congestion, wheezing, hives, abdominal pain and digestion issues. 

Though a natural response, our body overreacts to simple pollutants and allergens by producing large amounts of histamine- a naturally occurring chemical responsible for allergic reactions. By stimulating the immune and circulatory systems, our services address the root cause of symptoms rather than merely suppressing them like most nasal sprays, pharmaceutical anti-histamines, steroids and mast cell stabilizers. This allows the body to more naturally manage it’s internal ecosystem.

Allergy Relief at Synergy

Acupuncture stimulates the immune system and reduces inflammatory markers that cause symptoms of allergies. This may hopefully impact your reliance on pharmacological therapies such as nasal sprays, steroids and mast cell stabilizers.

Cupping, much like IASTM or percussion therapy, is also integrated into allergy treatment for symptom relief. Cupping can treat muscular soreness and general inflammation and also benefits organ and circulatory systems.

Electro-Acupuncture is useful in alleviating symptoms of seasonal allergies related to/such as stress, tension and inflammation. By enhancing blood flow to target regions most affected by allergens and irritants, electro-acupuncture can ease congestion and swelling and promote balanced biochemistry within the whole body.
