January 2016 – Hayfever

In Acupuncture terms, hayfever is seen as a signal that your energy is not flowing through your lymphatic system properly. Your immune system is either over reacting or your defence mechanisms are becoming inefficient. The traditional acupuncture approach to hayfever is to focus on the body’s response to an allergen, also the timing of the allergic response is a factor.  Acupuncture points are used to treat the bodies response to allergens. As a result of this the immune response should become more balanced.

Come and see Teresa, the acupuncturist, here at Health in Motion and she can help prepare you for the summer!
